 But why is it a cause for stress sometimes Rainbow Birthday Cake

Birthdays are a time for celebrating…you, your family members and your friends! But why is it a cause for stress sometimes? It shouldn’t be. I still remember my birthday parties as a kid, vividly. I remember the taste of the cakes I had (yum!), the games we played and how I felt. That’s the most important part, I felt special and it was my day
Now I’m more excited to try different color combinations and I’m definitely making this cake for my sister next February for her birthday. Love love love!

Rainbow Birthday Cake


  • 2 (TWO) packages Betty Crocker SuperMoist White Cake Mix (with Pudding in the Mix) (16.25 ounces)
  • 2 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup vegetable or canola oil, divided
  • 6 eggs, divided
  • gel food coloring (purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red)
  • 3 (THREE) containers Betty Crocker Whipped Whipped Cream Frosting (12 ounces)
  • Betty Crocker Decorating Decors (Nonpareil Decors)


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Using sheets of wax paper or parchment paper, trace along the edge of an 8-inch round pan. Do this 6 times and cut out round shapes. Spray the bottom of 3 (8-inch) round cake pans with baking spray. Place one sheet of cut out paper into each of the 3 round pans (or however many pans you have), press down to make sure the paper is flat. Spray the sides with baking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add one cake mix, 1 cup water, 1/2 cup vegetable oil and 3 eggs. Mix together until thoroughly incorporated, with a rubber spatula, about 1 or 2 minutes. Measure about batter evenly, you should be able to get about 1 1/4 to 1 1/3 cups batter for each pan.
  3. Using the food colors (in this order: purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red) and working on one color at a time, drop 1 or 2 drops of gel coloring at a time into one bowl or measuring cup. Using a spatula, mix the batter. Add more color if necessary until you get the shade you want. Tint the divided batter for the first three colors.
  4. Pour the colored batters into separate cake pans. Make sure batter is spread evenly across the bottom of the baking pan by tilting it. Then, tap the cake pan on the counter a couple times.
  5. Bake for 15 to 16 minutes on the middle rack at 350 degrees F. Use a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake to measure doneness, there should be no wet cake mix visible and the toothpick should come out clean or with a little bit of crumbs. Allow cakes to cool for 5 to 10 minutes in the pan. Being very careful because the pans will be pretty warm or hot, flip the cake pans over cooling racks. Remove the paper and discard. Allow cakes to cool completely.
  6. Allow the cake pans to cool a little bit and then wash them. Bake and cool remaining 3 cake layers as directed repeating steps 2 to 5 with the remaining colors.
  7. Place each cake on a flat surface (I put them on parchment paper on my kitchen counter) and carefully trim rounded tops off cakes to level them (but this is optional).
  8. On a serving plate or I used a cardboard cake round that’s covered in parchment paper, put a little bit of frosting on the plate. Place the purple cake layer (with the smooth side or bottom side UP) and push down with your hands to ensure the cake stays put.
  9. Add about 1/4/ to 1/3 can of frosting to the top of the cake. Frost the layer with frosting to within 1/4 inch of edge with an offset spatula. Repeat with blue, green, yellow, orange and red cake layers.
  10. Add frosting to the top of the cake and smooth it out. Using your spatula, even out the sides with frosting, add a light coat if needed. This will seal in the crumbs and it’s okay if any cake is showing at this point. Add more frosting to the sides and spread evenly with the offset spatula.
  11. Refrigerated the cake for at least 4 hours or overnight before cutting. Add nonpareil decors and serve.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
