My pictures suck but my cakes are awesome.
I made a cake. A fantastic cake. One that I saw on the internet and wanted to make for myself and eat to my heart's content. it was fantastically easy, and something i would recommend for any birthday. or, any day, really.
1 box white cake. prepare according to directions (leave out egg yolks or the batter will be yellowey)
1 box gel food colorings.
Take prepared cake mix and divide into 5 bowls, add a TON of food coloring to each bowl: red, orange, yellow, green, blue. (drat, i should have put some purple in there too!)
take two cake tins, and here's what you're going to do: pour about half of each color into the first cake tin in ROYGBIV order. just pour right into the center of the tin, dont mix, dont smush. just pour. THEN, in the secon tin, pour in opposite order! that way you get a nice swoosh of color in your two-layered cake! woo!
matt added two little marshmellows just to spice things up.
let em cool, invert, and ice.
