Tutorial: How to Make a Rainbow Cake

I don't know anyone who doesn't like rainbows. Adding color is a great way to liven up any dessert table. And what better way to add color than to add a rainbow!

Here's a simple, step-by-step guide on how to make those pretty rainbow layered cakes.

For this example, I'm making a 4-color cake of Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow. You can choose other colors of course, the only limit you have is your imagination (and color-mixing abilities). 

STEP 1: Prepare 4 separate batches of cake mix and add different coloring to each batch . You'll be preparing and baking these cakes separately. I don't normally use cake mix since I like mixing my own, but cake mixes are an easy and quick way to try baking out.

STEP 2: Bake each pan in the oven following the instructions of your cake mix.

STEP 3: Remove the baked cakes from the oven, let them cool, and stack them one on top of the other as shown in the picture bellow with a layer of icing in between. This helps the cake stick together. 

STEP 4: Cover the whole cake in icing. Make sure the whole thing is completely covered.

STEP 5: Slice the cake and serve. ENJOY!
