So in honor of the first birthday here, I had to do something special. And what is a birthday without some cake right?! I must be crazy to make cake, after all I will be eating a lot of cake this month with Bacon Jr. and Little Boy Bacon's birthdays next week. But I've been wanting to try this recipe for a while now and really, can one eat too much cake?
Rainbow cake in a jar:
What you need:
White cake mix (feel free to make your own. I managed to buy a bunch on clearance after Easter that I'm still using up)
8oz glass jars (half pint size)
Pretty easy right!
Start by washing your jars and letting them dry completely. Dig out 6 small bowls and your food coloring. I found that I prefer the food color paste to the liquid drops. They seem to give a better color when I use them.
Mix up your cake using the directions on the box. Preheat your oven to 350* also. Once the batter is all mixed up, divide it amongst your bowls. You don't have to have the same amount in each bowl so just dump some in.
Next add in your food colors. I did the colors of the rainbow. Ok so they are more a pastel rainbow, I found out I'm running low on food color paste and had to mix some colors to get what I needed.
Aren't they pretty!
