Since we’ve kinda been prisoners in the house this week (well I was able to escape yesterday for a while. L is stuck), I decided we needed to make something fun. I’ve been seeing the “Rainbow Cake” on Pinterest for years and I decided it was time.
L and I quickly made two boxes of cake mixes (Funfetti of course) and then the fun started. We separated the batter into six sorta equal sections. I let L pick what colors we were going to use and he settled on blue, red, purple, orange, yellow and green. Since I am
fun crazystupid, I also let L man the food coloring. If you want super vibrant colors, let a 4 year old decide how much food coloring to put in.
I only have 4 cake pans (purchased for $0.49/each during a Target after-holiday clearance sale thank you very much), so I baked the cakes in two batches. Make sure to spray your pans or the cake? Yeah, not coming out. We had a little trouble with the green layer, but I saved it.
I have no idea what the proper way to frost a cake is and I don’t care enough to look at Pinterest to find out. We stacked the cake in an order selected by L(*) (frosting in between layers) and then just slapped on more frosting than I would like to discuss.
It certainly didn’t turn out perfect (nor did I expect it too), but I think L and I did pretty well! I mean Buddy from Cake Boss hasn’t called to hire us, but I am still proud. We had a great time making it and it looks super fun sitting on our counter! We will totally attempt this again.
Have you ever attempted the rainbow cake? How’d it turn out? If you haven’t give it a go! It’s a total kid pleaser!
