Rainbow Cake

Rainbow cake


  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups milk
  • Gel food colouring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
  • Frosting of your choice (e.g., buttercream)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour three 8-inch round cake pans.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. You can use an electric mixer for this.

  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

  5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined.

  6. Divide the batter equally into six small bowls. Using the gel food colouring, tint each bowl of batter with one colour of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple). Start with a small amount of colouring and gradually add more until the desired shade is reached.

  7. Pour each coloured batter into individual piping bags or resealable plastic bags.

  8. Starting with one colour, pipe a small amount of batter into the centre of the first cake pan. Repeat with the remaining colours, piping each one directly on top of the previous colour. The batter will spread outward in concentric circles. Repeat the process with the remaining cake pans.

  9. Carefully transfer the cake pans to the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cakes comes out clean.

  10. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool in the pans for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  11. Once the cakes have cooled, you can frost them with your desired frosting. You can also layer the cakes with frosting in between each layer for a more traditional rainbow cake look.

  12. Slice and serve the rainbow cake to reveal its colourful layers!

Enjoy your vibrant and delicious rainbow cake!
