what a BEAUTIFUL effect... thanks for sharing.

question:
I'm vegan and haven't been able to convert the WASC recipe... can I use another a white cake recipe?

thanks very much. icon_smile.gif

How much batter do you put in your pan when you make WASC? Do you just follow the pan instruction? I've read it somewhere that WASC doesn't rise as much as regular cake. Is that true?

I assume by the posts previous to mine that you are using a white cake then coloring it from there. Can you elaborate? I try to make my cake from scratch when possible and just wanted to touch base before I make a huge mess in the kitchen icon_lol.gif .

Also does each layer have that "whang" that a lot of food coloring tends to add? That is why i always use the no taste red is the "whang" factor.
Also for all those who have made it does it color your tongue? That is a fun factor for kids. Not for moms thumbsdown.gif but definatly for kids. thumbs_up.gif

Yay! I made this yesterday. It's the coolest cake I've ever made. It's so cheery and vibrant. It did take me forever to layer the color though. My oven was well preheated by the time the cakes were ready to go in. haha... I wonder if there's any easy to layer the color. It just takes a long time coz you have to spread it slowly and carefully. I think next time I will just drop different color batter in the pan instead of layering them neatly. That will save half the time. I do love the rainbow effect though. Thank you for the instruction.

Ok here we go. I used the technique described here with a white cake recipe last night. OH MY GOSH is it vibrant! THe pictures are no lie. Everything is bright and cheery and unbelievably edible! There is "NO WHANG" factor to the amount food coloring that I used anyway.
My kids loved it. I am in the process of making one for a friend who recently lost an uncle. I am going to frost it like a traditional three layer chocolate cake. When they cut in it will be a bright and wonderful surprise. I thought It might take thier minds off the lose. Of course I guess it might make them think i am crazy too. AH well it tastes so good they will never forget it.

Thanks for sharing. I made it for my son's b'day and it was beautiful. Also have it in my favorites.

I use a similar technique with scratch or box mix angel food cake. Divide the batter into bowls, color them, and put the different colored batters here and there in the tube pan. It can be done in rainbow layers or just randomly.
Even one-color angel food cake is more interesting and prettier than the traditional white.

I love this rainbowlicious cake. My son's first b-day party is next Saturday and I am making this for his cake. Everyone will just love it. I don't layer the color anymore though, now I just drop in one color here, one color there, and one color over there. It still comes out super cool, just blocks of colors everywhere. It definitely save me half the time because layering the color carefully took me a long time.

I've started using the same concept to marble cakes, like "strawberry lemonade". I marble together strawberry and lemon cakes, adding extra red to the strawberry and extra yellow to the lemon.

"Star spangled banner" is red, white and blue marbled together.

"Popsicle" is cherry and pineapple cake marbled together.

I know... Next time I'm putting batter in pastry bags icon_rolleyes.gif

Macsmom,
what recipes do you use for a cherry and a pineapple cake? or do you just ad extract of each to a WASC?

Love this idea by the way! Sounds so yummy

MacsMom Posted 8 Oct 2008 , 8:46pm

I use LoRann flavored candy oils. I dram per WASC recipe. For pineapple I also use pineapple juice instead of water.
