How to: Easy Rainbow Cake!!

This cake looks awesome and it's super easy to make!!  This would be a great way to make a birthday cake more exciting. You can make this cake from scratch but, I like to keep things simple.
What you will need:
  • Cake Mix
  • Eggs, Oil, & Milk/Water (according to mix)
  • Food coloring (I used 3)
  • Bowls (according to how many colors)
  • Baking Pan 
  • Fun Sprinkles
  • Icing of your choice

Top View- Yummy!!

  1. Mix the cake batter and divide it evenly among the bowls.
  2. Add a different food coloring to each bowl. Mix very well.
  3. Next pour in each bowl on the center of the baking pan. You want to do this in layers. When you are done the batter will almost look like a target. I unfortunately didn't take a picture of this... it was so pretty. So I made an awful image from paint. :)  You can also take a tooth pick and swirl the icing for a more fun effect.
  4. Bake your cake. Don't be alarmed if your cake is an odd color. Icing will cover it right up.  Let your cake cool.
  5. Ice cake with an icing of your choice. I prefer white icing with a rainbow cake because its so plain. Add sprinkles. If you aren't a sprinkle fan you can just pipe the icing on and make a fun design.
  6. Serve and enjoy!!
