Rainbow Cake!Today I tried my hand at making a rainbow cake as seen all over pinterest!! A .99 cent box of Yellow Cake Mix & $1 box of food coloring from The Dollar Tree!
I used some of my sons smaller plastic cups to seperate the batter after i made it as normal. In hindsight, i should have chosen larger cups or not have filled the cups so much. It was tough stirring it around once i put the food coloring in.
I put about 3-4 drops of food coloring into each and mixed it with a fork. Everything looks great except for purple!!! Which i should have known was going to happen as i have a hard time making purple when making my sugar scrubs... (when you think of the scent Sweet Pea do you think purple? cause i do!!)
i baked it as suggested on the box & pulled it out of the oven to find the top of the cake was really dark!
at first, i panicked and then i was sad. then as i sat waiting for it to cool, i realized it would probably look fine on the inside (yes a derp moment!) And it was! it looks great on the inside. Much like confetti.
Until next time :)
