Hope you have a great day.  Sorry I can’t be there to give you this or didn’t have time to make one while I was there over Easter.  Please forgive the mamby pamby white frosting.  Maybe the inside will make up for it.

Brazen Bites sent me this recipe from conversationswithacupcake.com.  Its involved, but not hard. 

RAINBOW CAKE

2 boxes white cake mix

6 eggs

1 cup water

2/3 cup oil

Wilton food colors red, organge, yellow, green, blue, purple

Mix cake batter and separate 1 cup of batter into 6 smaller bowls. 

Red layer: 1/4 tsp red food coloring

                       1/2 cup raspberries

Orange layer:  1/4 tsp orange food coloring

                              2 Tbsp orange juice

                              orange zest

Yellow layer:  1/4 tsp yellow food coloring

                             2 Tbsp lemon juice

                              lemon zest

Green layer:   1/4 tsp green food coloring

                            2 Tbsp lime juice

                            lime zest

Blue layer:   1/4 tsp blue food coloring

                        1/2 cup blueberries

Purple layer:   1/4 tsp purple food coloring

                              1/2 cup blackberries

Bake each layer separately in 8 in round sprayed pan at 350 for 20 minutes.  Let cakes cool and remove from pans.  Frost when totally cool.

WHITE CHOCOLATE FROSTING

1 cup butter

1 120z pckg white chocolate chips

1 lbs powdered sugar

1 1/2 cup milk

Melt chips in microwave and combine remaining ingredients until smooth.  This makes plenty of frosting for both between layers and the sides and top of the cake.

I didn’t have any trouble with the layers, but the frosting on the other hand…

I think the frosting need more than 3 lbs powdered sugar and it needs to be refrigerated.  After I cut it…it fell over.  Still tastes and looks great, but just an idea.

At any rate…Happy Bday Leon.
