Step 1: 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).
Step 2: The Cake Pop Mixture
Bake a white cake (I used a box of white cake mix). Cut off some of the darker edges. Then crumble it up and mix in
3 large spoons of white frosting. You should end up with a cookie dough-like consistency. Break this up into 5 or 6 pieces (this
depends on how many colors you want to use).
Step 3: Food colors
I used a couple of brands of food coloring. These colors work well to make the rainbow stripes. If you use different ones, be careful because sometimes colors will look dull. So, in this step, mix the food coloring into the 6 separate pieces of dough with latex gloves.
