This is my tutorial on how to make cake pops that have rainbow stripes on the inside. I also show how to make a small rainbow cake. These make a fun St. Patrick's Day dessert.

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools (for the Rainbow Cake Pop)

Picture of Ingredients and Tools (for the Rainbow Cake Pop)
This image shows the things that I used to make the rainbow pops.
A rolling pin also comes in handy.  The most important tool is a round 1.25" to 1.5" cookie cutter.
This recipe makes about 14 rainbow pops (if you make 6 layers of color and use a 1.5" cookie cutter).

I’ve just tried this and had difficulty making the colors stand out. I bought fresh food coloring last week and it still looks dull. How did you make it look bright?

Hi Boygasmo, It's too bad that you ran into trouble. Did you use the same brands and colors that I used? Also, the cake needs to pretty light, that's why I cut off those edges. If you didn't do that then maybe the cake's color interfered with the food coloring colors.

I noticed that some types of food color don't work well. Like the regular McCormick blue looked dull so I didn't use it.

If you want to use your own food coloring in the future, I suggest doing tests on small balls of dough first before applying it to a bigger piece.

Hopefully you'll have more luck the next time! It's neat when the colors do pop out.

Oh, and it's best to start with say a cake mix that's white and not off white or yellow.

Excellent video! These pops looks beautiful, love the colors.

Thank you S189.
I just love rainbows and I adore cake pops! These are the bomb!!!
PS that is an amazing cake pop mixture consistency. You say you used about 3 large spoons of the frosting. Do you remember about how much of that frosting container it was?
Sparked Ideas (author)  Penolopy Bulnick2 years ago
I checked and the 3 large spoons of the Betty Crocker Whipped Fluffy White Frosting add up to 1 half cup. But I wasn't very exact about it and just made sure that there was just enough frosting so that when you roll out the dough, it doesn't crack and fall apart.
beautiful, I wonder if the layers could be colored with different flavors of Kool-aide? I use unsweetened Kool-aide to make suckers when I want to simplify the process. They make great suckers-

That's a neat idea! You should try it.

We have a listening party March 30th for the Supreme Court Oral Arguments in the Prop 8 and DOMA cases. Maybe I'll make these and take them in. They look fun.

Hi Hmiller,

I would make a practice batch first before making them for a group of people.

These look great!
Awesome. My daughter loves doing cakey things, and she adores making rainbow and personalized cupcakes.
Looks delicious, almost too good to eat, but not quite, since it would be a shame not to. I'm considering making something inspired by this for my daughter's birthday.

Thank you for your comment Sunshine. In general, I've been getting very few so I really appreciate it. Yes, making the video and posting to various sites has been time consuming but also a lot of fun.
