A white batter will probably give you "truer" colors but I'm sure you can color yellow cake as well.

I just added color to the one I did, I added 2 colors and marbled it for my son's b-day cake and it turned out great!

I colored yellow cake for Sunday...I'd suggest using the gel colors if you're not starting with a white base.

here is a rainbow cake I did for my DD birthday...it's white choc. raspberry cake........so technically still a white cake.

You can use yellow cake, but the yellow will affect the color (like if you add red, it will turn orange, if you add blue, it turns green, etc)

I just did my first rainbow cake for my dd's 6th birthday and it was gorgeous, it's the rainbow Barbie cake. Be mindfull of what cake you are using, I used regular wasc with the eggyolks, so it's a bit yellow and used gel colors with no problem. I also just did a red velvet and the color doesn't affect anything, for that I used regular liquid color for measurement's sake, I just wasn't sure how much it would use of the gel... Just go for it, what are you trying to do? Do you need to match a theme?

You can also use flavored packet(s) of Kool-Aid to tint your cake batter different colors. I like blue! (I guess it was blue raspberry because it tasted citrus-y, if that's a word, but it's good.)
