Let's talk cake. More specifically, Rainbow Cake.
First of all, let's take a moment and thank Ally for bringing this recipe to me one year ago, this month.If you like cake. You will like this.
My roommates demand it.
And since this is finals week,we take the opportunity to eat good "study food"
...get ready for some more Finals-Week-Blogging coming your way.
For the sake of seeing the evolution of my rainbow cake...here is the Wall of Rainbow Cake Fame.
But a fair warning: it WILL be gone within 24 hours. If it lasts that long.
This particular cake comes from the classic Rainbow Cake recipe, but also draws a whole lot of inspiration (once again) from iambaker.
Fruit of the Rainbow Cake
2 boxes of white cake mix
3 cups of Sprite Zero
1 small container of white icing
1 small container of cool whip
1/2 pint of strawberries
3 handfuls of blueberries
Food dye (yellow, red, green, blue)
1. Combine both cake mixes and Sprite Zero in mixing bowl
2. Beat with hand mixer for 2 minutes
3. Separate the batter into 4 different bowls
4. Cut up fruit and place in each bowls, separately.
(I put a few drops of matching colored dye into the bowls, just to make sure the fruit layers would be distinguishable)
5. With a hand mixer, blend in the dye and fruit into the bowls.
6. Grease two 9-inch cake pans. Begin with one color and put half in one pan, and half in the other. Scoop the next batter, and place directly on top (it will resemble a dart board when all layers are in place). Continue until all the colors have been placed.
7. Bake in 350degrees until a fork comes clean.
Enjoy rainbow cake # who knows...
