Rainbow Butter

About: I am a simple person by nature performing several roles in life - a daughter, a wife, a mom and a girl :-)

Butter is an extremely versatile ingredient and has earned its place in every single household. When the rainbow contest came, I got this idea of making Rainbow Butter and I am glad that I finally made it today. The output is so pretty and cute, I just fell in love with it. I took multiple pictures with an attempt to make justice to its appearance and finally short listed these few pictures. Hope you like it.

You can use this Rainbow Butter just for presentation or with pancakes or bread or just about anything. I hope you would try his and use it in different scenarios. Please do let me know how you used it when you did :-) Thank you for reading my instructable.

Step 1: Ingredients and Preparation Step


  1. Butter
  2. Food Color

Preparation Steps:

  1. Ensure butter is at room temperature
  2. Divide the block of butter into various sections. I used 6 food colors so I made 6 portions.
  3. Take the first portion if butter in a mixing bowl and mix it well with a spoon so it forms a smooth uniform smooth butter mix.
  4. Add one food color of your choice and mix it. Carefully transferred this coloured butter into a container.
  5. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with all the remaining portions of butter and food color.
  6. Cover the container and freeze it.
  7. When you are ready to use it, cut it into smaller pieces and serve it with bread or pancakes or anything you like.
  8. I also made some rainbow butter curls for presentation. Use potato peeler and shave the cold refrigerated butter carefully, it's that easy. Then take the shavings and roll it and plate it :)

The most colourful and pretty rainbow butter is ready.

    I wouldn't call this healthy. Food coloring leads to different kinds of cancer. Much of it is banned in other countries.

    There are several kinds of food coloring that have been extensively tested and have no ill effects. These are the ones that are sold in grocery stores.
