Rainbow Cubes are a Colorful Treat

June 22, 2012

These rainbow cubes from Hungry Rabbit are a colorful treat.  Vanilla cake batter is divided into six portions before being dyed one color of the rainbow.  Each color is then individually baked for a few minutes in the oven.  Once the layers are baked and cooled, they are stacked upon one another and cut into cubes.  Rainbow cubes are great fun to make and are perfect for parties.
