Ideas for a Healthier Rainbow Cake?

Good Questions

Q: My twins are turning one in three weeks! I am planning their cake smash and I love the rainbow cake I've seen featured here in various forms (example 1, example 2) I'm wondering if readers have tried natural food dyes and still had luck in getting such rich and vibrant colors. If so, do readers have any sources or recommendations for best natural food dyes? I'd also be interested in good cake recipes that use low sugar or sugar alternatives, since this will be the babie's first foray into the world of sweets.
