3 packet cake mixes - split each cake into 2 so you have 6 bowls of mix and add colour to each one :)

And to get a more whiter cake for the color to take I used egg whites I used the vanilla cake mix Betty crocker! And also gel colors take better

How did it all go littlemiss!

My daughter just ask for one of these! B-day next week.
They must be popular this year.
Will be making my from scratch, 7 layers, heart shape. As requested.
Why do I even ask each year!

what recipe do you use makespacenow!

agree with Julz about the colouring to use.the regular food liquid colouring in tiny bottles just don't cut it, the colour will come out dull :(

I want to make one too in january. I don't know how I'm going to go with making it though. $8.50 for each Gel color, makes a very expensive cake for a single use of each color. I don't otherwise color my cakes much at all.Maybe little miss could sell me her Gel colors one quarter used.

Here's the recipe my teens used to make their rainbow cake but they didn't ice btw each layer.

I will just make basic vanilla sponge. Easy and can make one layer at the time. Tested for the small size of my tin I just need the 1-1-1 ratio.
Using gel colours and sugar flair powders for some of the brighter colours.
There must be a pink one too as requested and will make sugar pink icing and fondant to decorate.

hooksie60, Dec 6, 6:14am
Looks greatbut think I would prefer to make one cake than all of the layers. I am going to giv it a go at xmas. only have the liquid colours thou so may not be as good as gel colours

hooksie60, Dec 6, 6:19am
I agree with the price of gel but if you read the recipe that i posted ( under notes) it says to add lots of colour so I am sure that the liquid works just as well just don't be shy when adding it the more the better as they say. I hope that helps
