Step 1: Prepare Your Cake Batter

Make a white cake batter. Either a mix or your favorite recipe. Divide it up among 6 bowls.

Step 2: Color Your Batter

Color your batter the colors of the rainbow (red, blue, green, orange, yellow and purple)

Step 3: Create the Rainbow

In your cupcake liner or cake pan, add some purple batter into the middle. Next add some blue batter pouring it in the middle of your purple batter. Follow the same process for your other colors always pouring the batter in the center of the previous color finishing with red.

Do not spread the batter. The weight of each layer of batter will will cause the batter to spread. Before baking give your pan a few taps on your work surface to remove air bubbles.

Bake and enjoy the beautiful rainbow effect
