How to Make a Rainbow Cake

See how to make a rainbow layer cake perfect for Pride Month celebrations.

June is Pride Month, which means among the parades, festivals, and other celebrations of the LGBTQ community, all-rainbow-everything is taking over (maybe the Unicorn trend was just lead-up to pride?). Among the rainbow walls, Instagram stickers, and Pride-worthy clothing choices, though, you absolutely have to make some space for rainbow food. From ice cream, to Skittles, a lot of people and brands are getting in on the technicolor action. But if you want to do it yourself — maybe for your own Pride party this month — we can help. Read on to find out how to make (and eat) your very own rainbow cake, perfect for Pride.

What You Need:

White cake mix or recipe for white cake (we like this one from Epicurious)

Gel food coloring

White frosting (store bought or homemade work equally as well)

Sprinkles of your choosing

Rainbow candy (we used Skittles)


How to:

Make cake according to mix or recipe, adding

Level cakes and use a cake ring to cut cakes to desired size — and to show off the colorful layers

Mix desired food color into frosting for between layers. We chose to mix blue frosting for between the purple and green layers and yellow frosting for between the pink and green layers.

Using a piping bag or Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off, pipe frosting around the first layer of cake to outline. Then fill the outline with frosting, smoothing with an offset spatula.

Place second layer of cake on top of first layer, pressing gently (but firmly) to adhere.

Repeat with next color of frosting and top layer of cake.

Cover top layer of cake with last forsting color.

Decorate with sprinkles and rainbow candies as you please.
