Sunny Day Rainbow Cake

2 boxes white cake mix
gel food colouring
16 oz whipped topping
2 oz instant vanilla pudding mix

The Cake

  • Make the cake batter according to package instructions.

The Rainbow

  • Measure the total volume (by my estimate, 64 oz), then divide by 6 and measure into separate bowls.
  • There are 8 oz in a cup, so 64/6 = 10 to 11 oz, or 1 cup + 2 tbsp.
  • Stir colour into each bowl with its own spoon.
  • For the first colour into the pan, measure out 2/3 to 3/4 of your mix (in this case about 1 c) as close to the middle as you can.
  • Drop in your first three colours, then work on the other pan with the last three colours.
  • So if you’re doing rainbow order, the first pan should have red, then orange, then yellow, and now the purple, blue and green go into the second pan.
  • As a recap, this is so both layers are roughly the same size.
  • Bake the cake for however long the box tells you to bake it.
  • Let cool completely before moving to a wire rack.

The Frosting

  • Just mix the pudding mix in with the whipped topping for a few minutes.
  • Dye if you’re into that.
  • Frost the cake and serve.
