Rainbow cake

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi there!

I'm wondering if anyone has ever made a rainbow cake by layering different colored cake batter in the same pans? I'd kind of like to try it but I'm wondering if the colors would blend.

I didnt do it for a cake but I have done it for cupcakes. The colors could be seen and though it was time consuming I was impressed how well the colors stayed and didnt blend at all. The only thing was I didnt have even lines of color as you see in the rainbow cakes where the cakes are done individually.

I made one, it was a lot of work splitting it up into 6 bowls. I used yellow cake mix so the colors were a little muddy. I used 3 color per layer and it came out nice, just adding mix of a different color over each one.

Next time I am going to do it in a bundt pan. I saw a video online and you use the least amount of batter for the bottom layer (color) and most for the top one.

I tired to upload a picture but it didn't work so I had to use tinypic.

It's supposed to be purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red. But not too bad for my first time if I do say so myself. icon_biggrin.gif

I know this method is a little different than what you are asking for, but I made one for my daughter's birthday last summer baked in individual layers. Divide the batter equally into bowls, add food coloring, and bake in thin 1" layers. Here is a good link for a tutorial, if you need one:

Sweetapolita also made a darling one where her daughter's "doodled" on the white fondant with edible markers. I've always wanted to try this (image is from her website).

Not sure why the picture didn't attach, but it's so cute I had to try again. icon_smile.gif

I recently made a 6 layer rainbow cake have a look at my Minnie Mouse cake below.

I used in total 1.5 cake quantity but made in thirds (.5) so I could cook two layers at a time, this way the cake mixture didn't sit around, plus I only had two tins to use.
