Ready to bake a rainbow cake? Here’s what you’ll need!

“To create, follow the directions on your cake mix and whip up a tasty batter. We used two boxes of Betty Crocker French Vanilla, and dropped neon food coloring into four separate mixing bowls. Follow baking instructions and let cool completely. Slice cakes in half using a sharp serrated knife. We suggest cutting upside-down on paper plates. This will raise the cake up slightly and make the cutting process easier. Alternate cake layers, and spread a thin layer of frosting as you stack. Cover the entire cake with a generous coat of frosting to finish off. Top it off with a cool marbleized effect.
