Making Rainbow Cake

I've been meaning to post this for a while.

I was reading the Goons with Spoons forum at Something Awful, when I stumbled onto the Making a Rainbow Cake thread. I knew I must give it a try.

The idea is simple.

1) Make some cake batter
2) Split into portions
3) Color portions with food dye
4) Mix into baking pan
5) Bake
6) ...
7) Profit!!!

Prepping to cook

My daughter and her friend, who happens to be a boy. "He's not a boyfriend, Daddy!"
Mixing the dye into the batter.

The four colors, ready to go.

Poured into the baking dish with no particular plan at the direction of the children.

Out of the oven, looking good.

Mira is ready to eat a slice of the Rainbow Cake

The rest of the cake.

The kids had a great time making this and it was super simple. It's a good trick to pull out when the kids are bored.
