I want to make a cake that's rainbow- colored on the inside when you cut it. I realize the whole part of making it with white cake and coloring the individual parts before you put it in the pan, but I have a couple more questions that complicate things a little.

I don't want to do the diet-soda Weight Watchers cake mix recipe thing like is shown here http://www.colourlovers.com/blog/2009/03/05/how-to-make-a-rainbow-cake/

So I guess my real question is, can I make a variation of WASC to look similar? Has anyone ever tried it?

I'm asking because the last time I made a cake that had different colors in it, the 2 colors baked ok, but they didn't stick together. Or blend or whatever. Like I had chunks of white and chunks of purple that were cooked together- but- separate, and I want to know how to prevent that.


This probably doesn't make any sense at all... icon_sad.gif

I've made multi-colored cakes using a doctored white box mix (not exactly WASC, but fairly close) before and never had any problems with the colors separating. Make sure you don't have any airbubbles in the cake batter, that was probably causing the separation problem.

I banged the pan as usual when I made that cake. I dunno WTH happened to it, and I'm hoping it was just a weird fluke.

I have a rainbow batter cake on page 2 of my photos and a tye dye batter on page 1. You can read the comments for both, I tell you how to do it. It's tedious, but not hard. PM me if you have any questions, I'm happy to help!

I use WASC all the time for these!
