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.

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
