I Baked A Rainbow Cake

Rainbow Cake

I’ve been wanting to bake a rainbow cake for a long time. I started last night and finished this morning. It was very easy to make… But… It was a royal pain in the butt. Between measuring out the batter, mixing the food coloring, baking all of the layers and icing it, it took forever.

There are so many different recipes floating around for this type of cake, but I just used what I had on hand… Duncan Hines, lol! I do have some tips…

First… Use a cake, either boxed or from scratch, that is White. My cake was yellow and it was difficult to get the colors correct. Second… I used  liquid food coloring and the colors weren’t that vibrant. Next time I would use gel food colors. Third… This cake calls for tons of icing. I started with a lot, needed to make more, and still ended up a bit short. I also realized that the skewers with the flags in many people’s cakes aren’t there just for decoration. Once you start piling on the layers, they start to slip. The skewers hold them in place.

I also baked some chocolate chip cookies. I guess I was feeling ambitious.

Why can’t they ever just smile nice? And what exactly does that finger thing mean?
