Rainbow Tie Dye Cake

Today I am sharing a cake that is guaranteed to brighten your day!
Look at all those beautiful RAINBOW colors...

This cake combines the awesomeness of tie dye and rainbows...
Doesn't it make you smile?

I used the cake coloring technique (not the recipe) found at Omnomicon.
I wanted the outside of my cake to be as colorful as the inside,
so I added my own tie dye design to the top.

Start by preparing a white cake mix.
Divide it into 6 bowls, and make each bowl a different rainbow color.

Line the bottom of two 9 inch cake pans with wax paper, and grease the sides.
Layer your cake batter in concentric circles.

Use about 3/4 of the bowl for your bottom color,
then use a little less of each color as you continue.
Layer your second cake pan in the opposite order.

Bake your cake as directed on the box.
Let the cake cool, then frost with your favorite white frosting.
(I put blue frosting in between the layers, just to add more color.)

Next, you need food coloring gel in your 6 rainbow colors.

Make concentric circles with the gel on the top of your cake.
( I started with red on the outside, and used it again when I got to the center.)

Time to make some cake art!
Using a small, flat paintbrush (new or only used for food),
start at the center circle and brush toward the outside of your cake.

You will need to stop and clean your brush a LOT!
Just wipe it on a paper towel.
Otherwise, the blue and green will overpower the other colors.

This is how I did it:
(clean brush)
(clean brush)
(clean brush)

Repeat the same process in the gaps between your "spokes".
Continue until all the white frosting is covered, and there aren't any gel blobs.

Want to see the inside?


Wishing you Peace, Love and Cake!
