Easy Rainbow Cake

Our oldest son just turned 10 and we had a little party for he and his friends at the park on Sunday. Since his birthday was actually on the first day of Spring, I thought it would be fun to give this Rainbow Cake a try! I have been seeing it all over the internet and I thought it was perfect for this time of year, especially for an outdoor party in the sun! I should tell you. Anybody can make this cake. I am probably the world's worst baker and I made this cake so you can too, no matter what your skill level!! I promise. All of the recipes I found looked like way too much work so I made my own and it worked like a charm!


2 boxes of white cake mix, prepared
Food coloring, color gels, Wilton icing colors (Whatever you have available to dye the cake mix)


1.) Prepare Cake Mix as directed

2.) Divide cake mix equally among up to 6 different bowls (Approx 1 1/2 cups of cake mix per bowl). I only had 4 colors to use when I made it this time but I normally have 6. Just use what you have. That's the beauty of this cake!!

3.) Using your food colors, make each bowl of cake mix a different color of the rainbow 

4.) One at a time, pour half of each bowl of cake mix into 2 round pans. (You are going to be making 2 round cakes)

5.) Bake as directed on box

6.) Once the cakes cool, stack the 2 round cakes together with a layer of icing between. Once they are together, icing the rest of the cake. I used buttercream icing but you can use whatever you like!

And there you have it! One awesome, tasty, rainbow cake!  Heck, the kids loved it so much that even the kids who don't like cake wanted to try it out. If you are looking for something creative and different, this is it!



  1. A hublot bingo bango beerfest watch. if hublot was calling the prices, this replica watches sale price tag would have one more zero. Love their movements but hate the rest as a general rule. And this one totally replica watches uk outside of the movement finishing. Thanks for a brutally honest review David. But I do find it strange that you would assess such an interesting replica watches so negatively. To be frank, it much better than anything you have ever produced. However, to call vertical clutch disengagement any hublot replica sale of a second the accuracy of the rolex watches store is balderdash sir. The world is full of other watches. And I know that my watches have a niche appeal. The thing I always forget the date and I must have it in a watch. While the rolex replica sale side is good somehow all the gold is just too much. To quote a high class movie. I should be much more in love with but just am Not, and thisbis one of them. I love rolex watches store, especially bizarre ones. This one fits that bill. I love fine watchmaking. But there replica watches sale too many misses here for a proper love affair.
