Hello Dear Friends,
I pray you are each having a lovely day in the Lord!! He loves you so and if you haven’t had time with Him yet…He’s waiting to speak just with you, Dear Friend!! 🙂
Now, how about this for a FUN idea!! I saw the recipe via an All You(fyi: great resource magazine for couponing…easy peasy) email. I think the Rainbow Cakes are darling.
My Mom always made rainbow cake with our children when they were little. They used jello and thought it was just amazing!! 🙂
SWEET memories!! 🙂
I saw this one and thought…HOW EASY PEASY!!! I think I am going to pick up a gluten free white cake mix as well as a regular white cake mix and make these in jars to take for the July 4th weekend!! FUN!!! Will transport easily and look amazing!! Woo Hoo!!! 😉
Ok, now my mind is going crazy!!! Birthdays coming up, oooooh Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter….it is endless!!!!! 😉
Hmmmm still thinking of fun ideas!! Please share if you have some fun ideas for fun cakes in a jar! 🙂
PTL for such fun and lovely ideas!! 😉
Have a wonderful day in the Lord,
Rainbow Cake in a Jar
- 1 box Betty Crocker® Super Moist® white cake mix
- 1 container Betty Crocker® Whipped Ready to Spread white frosting
- 3 egg whites (for cake mix)
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil (for cake mix)
- 1 1/4 cup water (for cake mix)
- Betty Crocker® NEON food colors in neon pink, neon blue and neon purple
- Regular food colors in yellow, green, red and blue
- 3 (1-pint) wide-mouth glass canning jars
- Non-stick cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Wash canning jars and dry thoroughly.
- Set lids and rims aside. Spray inside of each glass jar with a generous amount of non-stick cooking spray.Make cake batter according to directions on cake mix box.
- Divide batter evenly between 5 bowls (approximately 1 cup of batter in each bowl).
- Add 15 drops of neon pink food coloring to the 1st bowl.
- Stir to blend well.Add 14 drops of regular yellow food coloring to the 2nd bowl. Stir to blend well.
- Add 24 drops of regular green food coloring to the 3rd bowl. Stir to blend well.
- Add 7 drops of neon blue food coloring to the 4th bowl. Stir to blend well.
- Add 8 drops of regular red + 7 drops of regular blue + 3 drops of neon purple food coloring to the 5th bowl. Stir to blend well.
- Spoon about 1/4-cup of each color batter into each of the jars, layering the colors in this order: purple (first), blue, green, yellow, pink (last). Use a paper towel to wipe any spills or drips from the jars.
- Place the jars in a glass baking dish. Add 1/4″ of water to the bottom of the dish surrounding the jars. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Cake tops should spring back to the touch when done, but don’t bake so long that the cakes are brown. You can also use a long bamboo skewer to test doneness if you have one.
- Allow cakes to cool completely, about one hour, before frosting.
- Spread frosting over top of cake and decorate as desired.
