How to Make A Rainbow Cake! by omnomicon

So, I in my previous article, but did not mention anything about health and diet food and / or, this recipe is the latter, to be confused with what it was should not be the first. I posted about cake of the rainbow, where it is if the distraction and colorful, the people it is not well, have a lot of traffic on the LiveJournal of my cool thing that everyone, because what you problems "recipe" What they want is that I think.

This will provide me the option to use the trick of one-point Weight Watchers old cake. I made the frosting itself unless, and I'm making a cake. A little. I've seen it done before, I swear it first!

This cake is suitable for various occasions.

Children's birthday

Conservative parents out
If you are a lesbian, they are your work will be glad that it is not to eliminate the kitchen of your woman.
If you are a gay man is the type of cake to make for parents, they probably told you anyway.

. . . So, I'm sure You can find a use in this recipe soon.

Of course, you can use a white cake recipe you want. Because it has a delusion of someday wearing a size 2 I, I'm only way to make them.

Double up as a recipe taken here: help me and, ah! At the bottom of the recipe is accurate, are made for a really small cake, frosting nearly enough lighter that does not take into account the particular, do not have.

Now, on top of the material.

That's it. Note the lack of fat in here? Mmmmmm. . . chemicals. Although I do not need to defend my method thanks to the double aspect of dub (WW), even when I make a "real" cake I usually use box mix because let's face it: Betty's been doing it way longer than I have, and have pretty much perfecting the art.


can of soda (12 oz)
2-12 oz cans of soda into the

cake mix
two boxes of cake mix. No eggs, no oil, no water, no sweat.

The action shots weren’t too thrilling. Now we measure it.

I’m going to round to
30 oz
60 oz because I have six colours and isn’t that just too convenient? It worked out to
3/4 c
1.5 c per colour, measurementwise. So I divvied that up and used my gel colours.

(the gel colours, while not as good as pigment dye, are much bolder than the very liquidy food colouring you probably grew up with)
how to: rainbow cake!
The first colour you drop into the pan, use about 2/3 of the mix for that colour. Otherwise, the top (last) colour will really dominate. I used a heaping
1/4 c
1 cup of each colour.

Drop the colors, one by one, into the pan, in neat concentric-ish set. Remember the cake will be sliced ​​in the side there, so mixing it around on top of the slices will not make you any more psychedelic (trust me, I did a three-dimensional thinking for you already).

If you're in three colors, start doing the opposite with the other pan. Because I'm going to be a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, I got from red to yellow in the pan first, then purple, blue, green in two. This is so that your two pans are equal if the measurement is not precise (and they are not possible).

Now finish up.

Follow the box’s baking instructions and do your dishes.

Such lovely dishes!
Now for the frosting:
1 box
2 boxes of fat free sugar free pudding mix, and
8 oz
16 oz (two of the 8 oz tubs pictured) of fat-free whipped topping. Or sugar-free. Or light. Or regular. They’re all pretty much the same. But that’s it.

Holy shit, the cake’s done! Toothpick clean and everything! Get that shit out of the oven!!!

The purple top kind of made a little turkey silhouette.

The frosting will be a little tough to spread, so treat it like a buttercream (I guess, I’ve never frosted a cake with buttercream). Putting gobs all over, then smoothing in worked well for me.

And look at that thing! It’s so pretty-lookin.

Here’s what this particular cake looked like. See how it’s tiny and too rounded and it kind of isn’t all that great? That’s because I didn’t double the recipe. It’s a mistake I’ll only make once.
how to: rainbow cake!
Here’s what that really should look like: same process, twice the batter.
Sunny Day Rainbow Cake
2 boxes white cake mix
24 oz of clear diet soda (2 cans, ginger ale and sprite work well)
gel food colouring
16 oz whipped topping
2 oz instant fat-free sugar-free pudding mix (2 smallish boxes)
The Dieting
Periodic follow the instructions of the box, mix the cake mix and soda. Later it will be lumpy. Again, be able to use a white cake recipe you want, this is just the way I do it.

This Rainbowing

(In my estimate, 64 oz.) To measure the total amount, then divide by 6 and measure into another bowl. Because the 8 oz cup, 1 cup + 2 tablespoons have 64 = 10 to 11 oz or 6 minutes.

Mix a color to each bowl with a spoon in a human. Bread, a major 2/3 (about 1-C is, in this case) for the first color of the mix on March 4, close to the center as possible. Degradation of the color of your first three is working on another pot of colors and then three. Since you are doing if the order of the rainbow, the first pan, now enters the yellow, into the second pot, you must have purple, blue, green, orange, red. In summary, this is for both layers is approximately the same size.

However, bake a cake for a long box to indicate that the burn. Say, but when the box is checked, usually is the density of the soda method, you will need a 5 or 10 minutes or more for more. Check back every 5 minutes, just until it is clean or to keep baking, toothpick in the center out. Let cool completely before transferring to wire rack.


In the meantime, make your frosting. Mix the pudding mix in the whipped topping just a few minutes. If you are coloring it to do.

Frost with whipped cream frosting in your fat-free fat-free cake. I eat.

(After 1 week) an editing

The child was not harmed in production and consumption of this cake. People seem to have missed the point that women 25 years old without children I diet. Children and do not need to be either non-fat really, if you do not like for one month what, do not have a dinner for them every night, your ideas, if you do not like the dye of soda need to use the recipe is not available.

: Weight Watchers (not a diet, people of the company) Notes to

I long, one of the cake mix and diet soda as I do not know why I say that you said they were "Packaging". The cup cake of one-point "nutrition" to the information, it is this case is WW / We advertise the 12, 3G No, there is no cupcake does not have this only 170 calories, fats and fiber. . . In my calculations, is 4 points. , And, on January 12 of this recipe will work in part to say 10 points (with whipped topping mix the pudding mix of about + 2 + 2 oz 16 oz box). Do not think is worth 14 points and bad cake. 3 [edit] (after 2 months)
