It's OK to use a white cake mix from a box. You have to make sure you use only egg whites for the blue and purple batter. So you need 2 cake mixes. Easiest to bake 6 thin layers because then colours are nice and separate. OK to use foil pans.

Mix one box with only 4 egg whites plus oil water as on box. Divide into 3 and add blue, purple, green colours. I use Americolor brand gel colour because bottles are small and cheap.

Mix other box with 1 whole egg and yolks left from #1, oil and water as on box, divide into 3 and add red, orange and yellow food colour.

Stack with white icing of your choice.

My friend made this one for her daughter. So delicious.!! I saved the recipe, but haven,t make it myself. Making it from scratch would taste so much better than box. hth Also, look how vibrant the colors are. So beautiful

You can use any white/vanilla cake recipe. I made one, and it was actually a snickerdoodle (cinnamon) cake recipe, because it was for my niece's birthday and her mother wanted that flavour. I just used a little less cinnamon than the recipe called for and while the colors weren't quite as vibrant as other rainbow cakes, it still came out looking great!
