Today Jack and I (with a little “help” from Ben), made some Rainbow Cake.  We followed Omnomicon’s tutorial.  (who by the way has AMAZING photos of the whole process.  jealous I must say, because I just am not so good at taking food pics.  but anyway, I digress…)  We had a blast making the cake, mixing up colorful batter, deciding how to layer the colors and watching it bake!  I think Jack’s favorite part was adding the food coloring to the batter.  Like magic!  Cool thing is, the cake tastes as delicious as it looks!  I used the Sprite that Omnomicon suggests which gives the batter a much fluffier texture…which personally I wonder if its what helps keep the layers so perky 🙂  I also liked the moistness of the cake.  A LOOONNNNGGGG time ago, I had a Sunday School teacher named Penny who made THE best cakes I have EVERY to this day tasted…and even back when I was a young girl, I would ask her HOW she did it.  She said it was that she added ginger-ale to the cake.  Hmm.  Who knew?!  The only things I did different were that I only used one cake pan instead of two…I didn’t read ahead…my fault!  But it worked out just fine…I just kept adding the colors on top of one another.  It did change the cooking time quite a bit though….given that I used two boxes of cake as directed…but it worked out, so hey!   Anyhoo…here are some pics.  I wish I could photograph food like Omnomicon can…but I did my best given poor lighting and lots of kids fingerprints and smudges 🙂
