I would like to make a rainbow cake in one pan. I need to make a 1/2 sheet cake, is there a way I can accomplish this in one pan?

Thanks icon_smile.gif

Are you talking about the rainbow colored effect on the inside of the cake? If so - you can! You'd take all of the batter that you will use for the sheet cake and then when dividing it up, the first color (bottom color) you will need to measure out the most of that color leading up to your last color which of you will need the least amount. You'll also want to pour it in a long rectangular shape and then each color after will go in the center of the color before.

Hopefully this makes sense! I did the rainbow method once before (although it was a round cake) and it was the hit of the party! Everyone loved it! It definitely makes for a cool surprise when cut into! You can see the pictures if you click on the red and yellow two tier cake that says "Ashley" on the front in my album!

Good luck!

Thanks LogansMommie! I understand the putting each color in the middle of the other, my other question is, I'm also making it come in towards the middle from the sides of the pan too, right? Did that make sense?
I will keep trying to look at your picture, I wasn't able too, I have a lot of problems with this web site being super slow or not connecting.

Thanks again,
Kathie

I've done this with cupcakes before, sorry no pics, I put each color of batter in a separate zip lock bag then snipped the tip, made it so much easier and neater to fill in the right amount of color. A piping bag with a large tip or just the end cut off would work well too.

Jeep_girl816, just read your post about the bag. That's exactly what I did, used a piping bag and cut the end, worked great!
