Rainbow Cake

Last week, we had a few rainy days and I, of course, perused Pinterest to 
find some ideas to keep my oldest busy and we decided to make the rainbow cake! Hadley calls it the rainbow birthday cake and she may sing Happy Birthday everytime she eats some.
This recipe is soooo easy and kid-friendly. Nothing has to be exact.
We started with just a box of white cake mix and mixed it according to the directions on the box. Then, I let her pick 5 colors she wanted to use in the cake. We used the  food coloring because you only have to use a little to get such a vibrant color.

So, my helper helped me stir the colors into the batter.

Then, we poured half of each bowl into 2 8 x 8 round pans. Cook them in a 350* oven 
for approximately 15 minutes. Let them cool all the way or when you try to drop the cake it will pull and tear. And that is not pretty.

Here is one of the finished pans. After, you remove the cake from the pan, some people
like to cut off the rounded top so it will sit flat but, I didn't have time for that. So, we just had a nice rounded cake top! It turned out just fine. 

Here is the finished product. I let Hadley pick out the icing she wanted and she picked 
the chocolate with sprinkles! I usually make icing but this was not one of those days!

Hadley enjoying the deliciousness!
