Yes, you read that right.. there are THREE, count 'em, three layers of festivities in this cake.
1. Funfetti cake mix.. (so sue me, I used a box).
2. A cupcake shaped cake pan
3. Rainbow innards
The only thing missing was fireworks... I mean, this thing was out of control... the CarrotTop of birthday cakes, if you will.
Here are some pics of our kid friendly, cake making project:
Step 1: Separate the batter into different bowls and dye them whatever color you want. The kids chose these colors and I used icing dye. Use whatever you want to color it...food coloring works, mashing up elderberries, whatever..(*Disclaimer... if you are looking for something more natural, make another cake. Rainbow cakes, by definition, are going against nature.)
Step 3: Bake it. (sorry, no pictures of my oven)
Step 4: Look longingly at it until the person with the birthday gets home from work, blows out the candles and all that jazz. (* Note: This is the hardest step, I don't care how old you are)
Here is a recipe for Rainbow Cake with purty pictures. Enjoy!
