I first saw a photo of this on Foodgawker.com and though it was one of the coolest things ever. I have a friend who loves everything rainbow (hence the rainbow corset from an earlier post…) so it immediately went into my personal cookbook. It is now a few months later and I still haven’t been able to find a reason to break out the recipe.
It’s a really easy recipe. I just bought some store white cake mix. In case you didn’t know this, I can’t make store bought cakes. They always fall apart on me. But I thought since this doesn’t have to come out of the pan I should be fine. I also was on a limited time constraint as I wanted to finish quickly.
After making the batter, I tinted each section with food coloring and layered them into the mason jars. I only filled them about ½ full so they could rise and still have room for frosting.
Here they are ready to cook…
And the end product!
I made frosting from scratch though and tossed some sprinkles on it.
I then packed up a few jars to send out in the mail to a really great friend of mine who is going through some tough times. Hopefully they will find her well and still intact!
