Rainbow Cake

So tonight we went out to serve at a Easter Supper and I was asked to bring a dessert. Right away I knew what "cake" I was going to make. Ever since I seen this cake at the idea room I really wanted to make it...but its a lot of cake for our little family so this was the prefect opportunity to make it.

So I started off with two white cake mixes. Then divided the batter up into 6 bowls. It was about 1 1/2 cups of batter. I mixed in the food coloring and poured into cake pans. You only have to bake the cakes about 15 minutes. Then let them cool.


Once they are completely cooled you can stack them up putting a thin layer of icing between them.

From looking at this picture I can tell the lean all started around the yellow layer. Anyways that was a side note. Next put it into the fridge to let it cool then do a crumb coat...this process is way to long to write about (and I didn't take any photos of this step) so just google it! heheh

Once all the frosting layers are done you can decorate with lovely sugar balls also known as Skittles and Ta-da cake complete!


I wasn't able to get a picture of the cake cut like I had hoped as it went so fast but I did mange to bring one home and get a picture of Eben eating a little bit before bed. His favorite color is blue and can you guess which color went first??
