Looks noxious, I think jelly / Jell-O would work better, you could backlight it too? L

A little dessert platter with an LED through the bottom. Not sure about the white section though, maybe if you made thin layers of white and used a bright enough LED then it would shine the whole way through? That would be great for parties.

Rainbows don't have white in them, but yes that sort of thing. L

Well, rainbows were "originally" white light, that is refracted into all the colors....having white is kind of self defeating :-)

egads that is made with 6 full height layers?   If it were made more like a Torte it wouldn't be so high, but then, that might take some of the fun(?) out of it?  :-)     I wonder if icing can be made clear.....hmmm

Might just make one for friday, being the day of Harvey Milk's death.... Very important day!

But then again, it's slightly ironic, due to the twinkie defense!  I was driven insane by rainbow cake.

Does it taste like a rainbow? If it doesn't, I'm disappointed for six layers of cake on top of each other.

Yum! Maybe you could pipe something on top. Or you could serve it unsliced as a plain white cake and then you would slice it... surprise!
