Crazy Rainbow Birthday Cake.

Since we are studying light in our Konos Obedience study, I knew this cake would fit right in with our unit. It fell right on the day we studied rainbows and talked about Noah. Luke really liked it, though I do NOT recommend using the icing they suggest. It was really heavy and almost ice cream like. It slid right down the sides of the cake and I ended up having to freeze the whole shebang. Also, I couldn't find two round pans, so we did one large pan and then cut the cake in half and stacked it.

Here's our crazy bright bowls o' batter:

Swirled with a knife:

Cut, filled, stacked and frosted - with the proud birthday boy:

All in all, it was pretty tasty and the kids really enjoyed it.

Hey! Love the cake! Another fun experiment w/ a rainbow theme can be found here:
A friend tried it with her daughter and I plan to do it with my boys just as soon as I get to the store to buy some food coloring. Looks fun!

Love the fabulous cake! What a great idea to bake it in a sheet pan and then divide it in half.

We made that cake last week for Malachi's 4th birthday. Great minds think alike, eh?
