Hi Kate,
I didn’t design the Rainbow Cake, I saw it on Wisk Kid a year ago and have been readying myself to make it. I cheated (a lot) though and used 2 x Greens vanilla cake mix and 3 x vanilla Betty Crocker icing – I just didn’t have the time to go the whole hog and make it all from scratch – as it was it took me about 4 hours of baking and then icing to do it. I used Wilton’s colouring gels to get the vibrant colours, though I know others have used liquid food dyes.
Here’s some in progress pics…..
