No matter what else you have at your party cakes like these are all anyone will remember. Rainbow cake two ways and the hottest, pinkest cake we've ever seen.
The first sumptuous rainbow cake has vibrant colored cake layered with creamy white frosting. It's made by the very talented Kaitlin (aka Whisk Kid) who walks you through the recipe here. She calls it a "Super Epic Rainbow Cake" and we'd have to agree!
A more loosey-goosey, but equally stunning cake is a swirled rainbow cake baked by Aleta of Omnomicon. You can read about how she made it here. She suggests you make any cake recipe you like (white or yellow) and use her instructions and photos for how to create the rainbow effect.
Finally, an electric pink strawberry cake we spotted on the Kitchn. You can find the recipe (which intriguingly incorporates strawberry Jell-o) at Fine Living. It is part of Sweets: Soul Food Desserts and Memories by Patty Pinner.
