Rainbow Cake

To make up for my non-post last week, I have two awesome recipes this week! Here’s the first one:

For my sister’s 20th birthday, we decided to make a Rainbow Cake! This cake was so much fun to make and it was incredibly festive for a birthday celebration! Not to mention it was delicious!



  • Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix
  • Pink food coloring
  • Blue food coloring
  • Yellow food coloring
  • Green food coloring


Follow the instructions on the back of the Funfetti cake mix box. We used two boxes worth of mix because we had a large crowd but you can follow this exact same recipe with one box.


Divide the Funfetti cake batter equally into four different small bowls. We color-coded them but you can use any bowls of course!

Pour the four different colors of food coloring into each separate bowl.

Add as many drops as you need for the color you want. The darker they are, the more they will show up when you put the cake to bake in the oven.

Begin to layer the four different colored batter into a cake pan. The more twists and turns you lay out the batter, the more colorful your cake will look once it’s baked.


Finally, go over the batter with a spoon so that it lays flat so that the cake grows evenly in the oven.

Follow the baking instructions on the back of the Funfetti box.



  • Pillsbury Funfetti Icing
  • Frosting in my previous recipe


First, cover the cake with the Funfetti icing.

Then, make the frosting from this previous recipe. Add food coloring of whichever color you wish to make the decorations with.

Insert the frosting into a decorating icing dispenser.

Begin to decorate with whatever message and designs you wish.

Here is our final product:




Super Sisters!
