Whatever you wish to call it...a rainbow cake or a tie-dyed cake...
it's not really that complicated to make.
so I'll tell you how I did it.
With a little help from Betty Crocker...
and a good supply of gel colouring...
along with a few basic tips...
you could make a 'rainbow' cake in your own kitchen.
The gel colouring is important...
the liquid food colouring would not produce vibrant shades.
* 2 packages Betty Crocker Supermoist vanilla cake mix
* 4 eggs
* 1/2 cup vegetable oil
* water (add to eggs and oil to make 3 cups liquid)
1. Empty both cake mixes into large mixing bowl.
2. Combine eggs and oil; add water to make 3 cups.
3. Add liquids to cake mix and beat on low until combined; then beat on medium speed for 1 minute.
4. Divide batter equally into six individual bowls.
5. Add gel coloring to each to create your rainbow of colours...purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.
6. Prepare two 9-inch round pans...line bottoms with parchment paper and spray pans with Pam. Now for the fun part!
7. In first pan, drop half the purple batter into the center. Carefully add half the blue batter right on top of the purple...followed by green, yellow, orange and ending with red. Do not stir at all.
8. In the second pan, use remaining batter in the reverse order...beginning with red.
9. Bake at 350°F for about 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in centre comes clean.
10. Cool completely before removing from pans.
11. Frost when cool.
* 2 packages vanilla instant pudding (4 serving size)
* 2 cups milk
* 1 large tub Cool-Whip
1. Combine pudding mix with milk and beat for one minute.
2. Fold in whipped topping mix.
3. Cut top off one of the layer cakes to level and place on cake plate.
4. Spread with a generous amount of the frosting; top with second layer.
5. Frost top and sides of cake. Refrigerate until serving.
Sprinkle with rainbow sprinkles, if desired.
Then serve to two special girls for their birthday...
or any other fun occasion.
And be sure you have lots of friends to help eat the cake...
since it serves a crowd!
And while we are on the rainbow theme...
why not add some rainbow finger jello...
using Anneliese's recipe?
Have a wonderful weekend...
