rainbow colored cake batter/ HOW? - Page 2

There's a few cakes like this on Pinterest also. Does anyone know if mouths turn colors when eaten like they do with frosting? I am not sure my wedding guests would appreciate that. icon_smile.gif

Found this a while back - I'm sure you can use scratch batter too instead of a mix.

It is very easy I decided to use 6 colors. So I divided the batter equally into 6 bowls, put in a squirt of color, mixed them and poured half of the first color into the pan, then half of the second color, etc. I reversed the color pour on the other layer. Pouring the batter in the center on top of the pervious color, forces the first batter to spred to the edge of the pan. If you wanted thinner bands of cake color, pour 1/4 a of each color at a time.( you would do the pour rotation twice for each layer.)

To answer two questions- my cake did not taste bitter or nasty from the colors used; nor did it leave colors stain your mouth. You really don't need that much color. A couple of drops was plenty.

Check out this link to my blog. You will see the rainbow wedding cake I made for my MIL. It was 24 layers of cake. A single batch of WASC was used for each color. Meaning 1 batch colored red made one layer 10" 8"6" and 4". So I just ended up baking 6 different bathces (one of each color) Make sense?? Hope this helps. icon_smile.gif

Jason, I have never heard of powdered food coloring before. Where do you buy that?

Some cake decorating supply stores will also carry them.
