Sunny Day Rainbow Cake

I got this recipe from another website, but ended up going to another blog to understand it more. I still think it is much too complicated and I dumbed it down! LOL.
You can't tell me that it doesn't look absolutely AWESOME!

What you need:
  • 2 boxes white cake mix
  • Eggs [as called for on each cake box]
  • Oil [as called for on each cake box]
  • Gel food coloring
  • 2 (8 oz.) cartons Cool Whip
  • 2 boxes instant pudding vanilla flavor
  • **Note - I didn't do the frosting like the recipe - I used Funfetti frosting from Betty Crocker!**
Mix together the two boxes of cake with eggs and oil.

Separate into 6 bowls. About 1 heaping cup in each bowl.
I bought one of each of these. I used all of the gels in the first set and the orange and purple in the neon colors.

Put some coloring in each bowl.

Mix well and add more coloring if you would like. The brighter, the better.

**Parchment paper is a must - I didn't use it - fail** - In a 8 or 9 inch cake pan...use about 3/4 if not a little more of the red batter. Then do about 3/4 of the orange. And a little less than 3/4 for the yellow. You want to get the batter as close to the middle as possible for this one.

In your second pan, do the same...start with purple, then blue, then green.

[Got a little messy here!] In the second pan [that started with purple], do the rest of the yellow, then the rest of the orange, then the rest of the red.

[Much nicer looking in this one. LOL.] Do the same in this pan, start with green, then blue, then purple.

Bake according to box instructions. Use a cutout circle of parchment paper so you don't end up with this. Let cool completely before moving to a wire rack. I ALWAYS am too antsy for the cooling. And it always turns out not so great. LOL

Place your layers on a plate or serving platter....piece together if your's falls apart. LOL. Also really watch your cooking time. I did mine a the minimum and the bottom got dark. :/

Frost. To make the recipe's frosting...just combine and mix together. You can add coloring if you want.

Still looks good even though it's a Frankenstein Rainbow Cake, huh? LOL

I'm gonna be pooping rainbows for a week :]
