Rainbow Cake...!!!




The word "rainbow" itself  has something which is enough to attract a kid even us, the adult people also. With this word , don't you  remember some sweet memories, the beautiful nature...something that could refresh and refresh  you again. Oh I do...I have very sweet, beautiful and refreshing memories with this word. I could remember that in my childhood , I loved to draw rainbow, always used to pray to God to do something so that I could see a rainbow in the blue sky. And now I see the same expression, excitement in my daughter. And you know, she doesn't want to believe that the rainbow has only seven colors, she used to say me," no mamma , it has loads of colours" and starts to draw a rainbow in her drawing book atleast with 15-20 colours .I understand this is childhood...this is imagination...this is the refreshment...this is the joy...!

So, in this way, sometimes we could also add some colors in our daily boring life too. I thought, if only drawing a rainbow could make my little one so happy, why shouldn't I try to do something so that she could enjoy her food also and in this respect I must mention that this is the only thing for which most of the time I am used to fight with her. Meanwhile I saw a wonderful recipe of rainbow cake and immediately thought to try this. And unexpectedly it was wonderful . My daughter not only enjoyed it to eat but also she shared it with her friends. I was fully satisfied after making this. So, now I am going to share this.
Before I write this recipe, I want to inform that, as during this preparation I emphasized only on colouring and therefore I used a simple cake mix for this instead of using the materials from scratch. But if you want to do from scratch you should go for this.

Here is the recipe:


  • Eggless Cake Mix(I used Pillsburry vanilla cake mix)
  • Baking tray
  • Food colors: I used red, green, sky blue and pink(you may use whatever you like)
  • Mixing bowls:5( 1 large and 4 small, as I have used only 4 colours)

  • Following the direction written on the backside of the packet, I at first prepared its batter using melted butter, milk, vanilla essence, powdered sugar in the large mixing bowl.
  • Then divided it into 4 equal parts and poured them in 4 different bowls.
  • Then only add 1 drop  each different colours into each  of the bowls.(amount of the colour depends on the amount of the batter,drops may be increased or decreased).Mix the color well with the batter.
  • Then preheat your oven in 180 degree C for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile take the baking tray.
  • Grease it with some butter.
  • Now add the coloured mixture one by one in the tray.
  • You will wonder to see that the different coloured batters are not mixing with each other.
  • Then put the tray inside the oven.
  • Bake it until a toothpick inserted into the cake, comes out dry.
  • Let it cool for sometime
  • Remove it from the tray carefully and you will be surprised and delightful again after you cut the cake.
