Bake me a cake!

Seeing as how Little J is not so good at sports I figured we'd see how well he does in the kitchen. A board I lurk-er-post on, had a thread regarding rainbow coloured cupcakes. The drama the ensued was quite entertaining but I digress.....
I thought they were so cool. I wanted to make them dammit. I don't give a rats ass about red #40 dye.

I have not baked in oh, about 23 years. Grade 11 home-ec class to be exact. *blush*
Knowing cupcakes were probably beyond my limited skills, we went for a simple cake.
Amazingly enough, I actually had a couple of cake pans. {Thanks Mom!}

Little J and I had so much fun! He really got into it to. Who knew baking could be so educational. We talked about measuring, how a mixer works, how to mix colours and timing. I edumacated my child.

We measured, we mixed, we poured, we baked, we decorated, we ate.

And it was good. No one has suffered any gastro-intestinal distress. Yeah us!

ETA: DANG IT! All the pictures are out of order and well, I'm just do damn lazy to move them all around.


  1. I love the swirly colors! Did you just use white or yellow cake and add food coloring?

  2. We used a basic white cake mix and neon food colouring.. a few drops of that stuff goes a long way.

  3. I posted about this a long time ago and have been dying to make it since....I just havent. I am making it for my step daughters birthday next month.
    Yours looks great and he is a cutie!

  4. Looks like a lot of fun. Now I am hungry for cake!! :)

  5. Wow! That does look like fun. So glad you posted this!

  6. Love it! I also read about this on th eboard that must not be named and laughed at all the people in an uproar...we are definitely trying it out this summer!
