Kids LOVE it and "big kids too." You are going to learn how to make a cake that will knock your family and friends SOCKS OFF. I am giving you my famous rainbow cake recipe.

So don't go out and buy that birthday cake, make it - and you never know, you may become famous for this cake.

My homemade birthday cake recipe (in cake or cupcake form) is so simple to make, yet I've never taken them anywhere where they weren't "ooed" and "awed" over. Your friends and family will think you are a baking rock star when you show up with these.

The secret is that they don't know that this cake is "colorful" and are shocked when they cut into it.

I have also used a homemade pound cake, and colored the batter with gel food coloring (about 7 different colors,) and baked it it a tube pan. What a hit. Make a glaze and use some fun sprinkles on top.

Not just a great cake; I have since used this idea to make a "Santa Cake" for Christmas, using plain batter, red, and green. You can use different colors for different holidays...... Red, White, and Blue is great for the 4th of July.

FYI: When you color your batter, you can just "plop" it in the pan. It will marble on it's own while baking.

You will find the paste or gel food coloring at Wal-Mart or Michael's. It is made by Wilton, so any store in your area that carries Wilton baking supplies would be worth checking into. Wilton also makes a powdered food coloring that is good for making intense or darker colors icing, too.


Here are the gel food coloring colors you will need, or want to have on hand: red, orange, yellow, greens, purple and blue.
