RAINBOW CAKE IN A JAR
So I am not sure, what has been up with me lately. I have been craving sweets for about a week now, even though I am not really a sweets kind of person. So this week I through the healthy stuff out the window and had to share this recipe. I am not sure if I’m more impressed by the recipe, than I am with how cute it looks…check it out.
|1 bx||white cake mix|
|food coloring (pink, yellow, green, turquoise and purple) see directions on coloring pkg to make all these different colors|
|3||pint size canning jars|
|1 can(s)||vanilla frosting or your favorite butter cream frosting|
Preheat oven to 350F. Thoroughly wash and dry the inside of canning jars. Spray the inside of each jar thoroughly with non stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Prepare cake as directed on pkg. Scoop about 1/2 cups of batter into five small bowls. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Tint each bowl of cake batter with the food coloring until very vibrant.
Pour about 3 tbsp of the purple batter into the bottom of each jar. Spoon equal amts of the rest of the colors. Place jars in a shallow baking dish, add about 1/4″ of water in the baking dish. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake 30-35 min.
