Actually taste the rainbow with a vibrant 7-layer rainbow cake! Tip: Use liquid gel or gel-paste food coloring for a deeper, richer color as opposed to its traditional liquid counterpart.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray disposable baking pans with nonstick spray.

Step 2

Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

Step 3

 Combine sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract in another bowl. Mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until ingredients are just combined.

Step 4

 Add half of flour mixture and half of milk to sugar mixture. Mix well. Repeat with second half of flour mixture and milk.

Step 5

Divide batter evenly into 7 bowls. When adding food coloring to each bowl, start out with about 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. Add more as necessary. Pour cake batter into prepared pans. Bake in batches of two or three for 10-12 minutes, or until center has set and edges of cake slightly pull away from the pan. Let cake layers cool completely before frosting.
