Step 1: Dig a white cake mix out of your pantry! You could make one from scratch too if you're really adventurous!
Step 2: Whip up your cake mix!
Step 3: (This is where it gets tricky!) Divide your mix into 6 bowls. An easy tip is to pour 1 cup into each bowl and divide what's left from there. It worked for me... I'm sure it'll work for you too!
Step 4: Have your PreSchooler remind you what the colors of the rainbow are! Here's a cheat sheet... red, orange, yellow, green, blue & violet! And in case you're new to this type of stuff... red & yellow make orange, and red & blue make violet! You'll have to make these colors if you are using a basic set of food colors. Have your kiddos help... this is a great lesson in Color Exploration!
Step 5: If you haven't already, prepare your pans for baking. I used 2 rounds.
Step 6: In order to create a "rainbow look", place your red, orange and yellow batters into 1 pan. Then place your green, blue and violet batters into pan # 2.
Step 7: Bake according to the instructions on the box.
Step 8: After your cakes have cooled, remove from the pans. Decorate and ENJOY!!!
