girls' night!

Chloe & Ava's sleepover tonight consisted of
loud music, tons of giggling, pizza, and
RAINBOW CAKE.
{inspiration found here.}

1. Prepare 2 boxes of white cake mix, according to directions.
2. Divide evenly into sixths (mine each filled one pint glass).
3. Color with gels for vibrant colors, drops for lighter colors.
4. Bake layers, one at a time, about 12 minutes, and turn out onto racks until cool.
5. Use your favorite frosting (mine is whipped buttercream) to lightly frost between layers, crumb-coat, then finish off.
6. Top with rainbow sprinkles.

It doesn't get much better than this!

COLOR:

I suggest gels, you only need a tiny bit. With red, yellow, & blue you can mix the others til they're exactly as you like them. Start with like 1/8 of a teaspoon, then add from there as needed!

Gels are perfect for coloring frosting, as well!
