A rainbow cake for Red Chief's birthday
Red Chief had three parties for his third birthday party in all: one with each set of grandparents, and one with just us. He requested a rainbow cake a few months ago, so that's what we did. I'm pretty horrible at decorating cakes, so I went for an internal rainbow.
I used this recipe, with alterations as usual. I skipped the fruit. I halved it and baked it in bread pans and used food coloring instead of fruit. The frosting was yummy but very, very sweet.
Oh, and I used this recipe instead of a cake mix. It was just right and will be replacing cake mixes for us from now on. I've been looking forever for a good yellow cake recipe that uses oil instead of butter, so I'm happy to have finally found it.
