Rainbow Cake in Jar
- 1 box white cake mix made according to package instructions
- Neon food coloring in pink, yellow, green, turquoise, and purple
- 3 one-pint canning jars
- 1 can vanilla frosting
- Rainbow sprinkles
Scoop about 1/2 cups of cake batter into five small bowls. It doesn’t have to be perfect, don’t panic if you get a little more of less of one color than another. Tint each bowl of cake batter with the food coloring until very vibrant.
Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the purple batter into the bottom of each jar. Spoon equal amounts of turquoise batter, then green, yellow, and pink. Place the jars in a shallow baking dish, add about 1/4″ in water in the baking dish. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes.
I used AmeriColor gels and didn't realised that I should have gotten primary colours so I could have done more colours.
It was nerve wrecking trying to layer the coloured batter layer by layer. I was so nervous that it'd all get mixed up. These kind of remind me of those coloured sand in jars that was popular a few years back.
I was really surprised the glass jars didn't crack during baking in the oven. Can't wait to try more baking in jars!
