Rainbow Cake!

This weekend we celebrated my mom’s birthday as well as a pre-birthday for the twins with my family.  My sister and her husband were up for the weekend and the boys birthday is next week so thanksgiving always seems the perfect time to celebrate their birthday (who doesn’t love a turkey dinner for you birthday hahaha).  We had desserts galore that included a birthday cake for my mom and a rainbow cake for the boys.  It was the first time I have ever made a cake like this but loved the outcome so it may be a new addition to my cake rotations J 
It all starts with 6 coloured cakes….you make six individual 9 inch round cakes each with a different colour of the rainbow.

Then you have to  level them all off and start the stacking.

If it teeters you have to re-level it!  Make sure to put some icing between the layers to stick them together and add some tastiness J

Oh and of course have two little “helpers” to make sure you don’t miss any steps

Here’s what a slice of the final product looks like….hmm delicious! 

Last step…..enjoy!!


  1. that's awesome. How do you get the different colours?

  2. That is one giant cake! Happy birthday to the two of them!

  3. I love it! So do you use food coloring?

  4. The cake is really really tall but that's what it makes it special from the other cakes we make. You make it by making a double recipe of a moist white cake. You then split the cake mix into 6 even bowls. You then use food coloring in each bowl to get the right colours (tidbit of info...red is the hardest for me to get....it takes forever for it not to look pink!).

  5. What a fun cake! It made for a fun day. Great idea!
