Conquer the Kitchen: rainbow cake

Lisa Gatlin

Rainbow cake is a super simple recipe that is certain to be a huge hit. With just a little food coloring, you can create a colorful rainbow cake for your friends coming out party or maybe just use red and blue for that UA basketball bash.


  • Cake batter
  • Food coloring, whatever colors you want

Mix the cake batter using any recipe that you prefer, just as long as it’s white. Split the cake batter into equal parts, depending on how many colors you want to use. Pour about 10 drops of the color into each bowl of batter and stir. Using any pan, pour the batter one by one directly onto the center of the pan in concentric circles. Bake, frost if you’d like, and enjoy the festivities.
