"Mama Makes" with Jessica

Hey y'all. I'm so glad that I could be a part of Summer's "Mama Makes" series. Today I'm going to show you how to make a rainbow cake. It has a lot of steps but it doesn't take as much time as you'd think. The taste and look of the cake is worth it in the end. So, let's get things started.

You can use any type of cake mix that you'd like. This is just what I had on hand at the moment. All you have to do is follow the mixing and baking directions on the back of the box.

 Separate the cake mix into six different bowls. You'll need about one cup of mix for each of the bowls. Put in as much or as little food coloring as you like. I added more because it makes it brighter.

 You can layer each color anyway you'd like. Pour each color right on top of the next.

Layer the next two colors just like you layered the last two. The cake mix will spread out as you layer each of the colors.

Alright, these are the last two layers of color.

You can shake out any bubbles if you'd like. I chose not to shake the bubbles out because I'm lazy. :D The cake turned out just fine.

The finished product with homemade buttercream icing. The recipe is below. Enjoy!

- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 1/4  cup cream or evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups powdered sugar, divided

Place butter in mixing bowl. Beat the butter about 1 minute, or until creamy. Add cream, vanilla, salt, and 1 cup of powdered sugar. Mix about 2 minutes, or until well blended. Gradually add remaining 3 cups of powdered sugar and mix/beat until smooth.
Thank you so much Jessica!  I can't wait to make this!
