Rainbow Cake

I made this Rainbow cake for my sister in laws birthday! I was so happy with the bright colors and the way it turned out. I made it with a white cake mix and frosted it with Cream cheese frosting. It was so simple and tasty. Give it a try your kids will love it!!

Rainbow Cake

2 boxes white cake mix
Gel food coloring~must use this kind if you want the bright colors
Cream cheese frosting

Mix the cake mixes according to the package directions. Then divide the batter between 5 bowls. Mix a diferent color of food coloring into each bowl like so:

Spray 2 round cake pans with cooking spray. Dump about 1/2 -1 cup of each color on top of each other in the pans. Do not spread out just let it spread out on its own. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool and frost!! You can also make cupcakes like this:

Happy Baking!!!
