Usually she asks for a strawberry cake.
Then she wanted to make a watermelon pie..... with cheese! ugh!
So, when she asked for a rainbow cake I had to figure something out!
Yes, I could have done the store bought swirly rainbow cake mix...
But what fun is that?
Instead I used a good old white cake recipe.
Split up the batter,
Added obscene amounts of food coloring to each little bowl.
Poured the multi-colored batter into the prepared pans one at a time layering it.
"Groovy Man!"And baked it right on up!
I frosted it with plain white frosting, so she has no idea what it looked like inside.
When we sliced into it she was thrilled!
Bake a rainbow!!
You'll be glad you did!
Or... at the very least you can have a flashback to your "Hippie days".
(My 16 yr old boys called it the Bob Marley cake! )
***TIP (thanks for reminding me Shelby!!) I did reduce the liquid in the original white cake recipe by a scant 1/4 of a cup to compensate for all the food coloring! ***
