Rainbow Sprinkle Cake

Another month has flown by and here I am just now posting.. Eeekk! I am starting to feel like a procrastinator.  I think my inspiration has returned now that my daughters 6th birthday party is finally over.  It took a month to plan and has consumed all of my time and energy.
It was a rainbow themed party so I had to try the rainbow cake that has been floating around blogland.  I only did a 3 layer cake since we had a sweetshop bar and I knew most everyone would be too full on candy for cake, but it got eaten up and it turned out great. 

Purple, red and green were the colors we chose

Sprinkle rainbow cake

I used my Lemon Layer Cake for the cake, filling and frosting.

I divided the batter into 3 bowls (about 2 cups each) and added GEL food coloring.  Gel works best  as it makes a more vibrant color.  After coloring each of the 3 bowls of cake batter I poured them into the pans as directed in the recipe.  Follow the baking and assembly directions of the Lemon Layer cake.

When the cake is assembled add as much sprinkles as your heart desires,  I loaded mine up for the party!
