Halloween Rainbow Cake

Baking Date: October 20, 2012

One of the team moms severely sprained her ankle while playing with her boys.  She was now relegated to a walking cast. So I made her get well brownies; chocolate being the best healer out there.  As a thank you for the brownies, she bought me these:

Orange & black frosting, along with Halloween-themed sprinkles

We celebrated Halloween a little early with our football watching friends.  They will be going to the game next weekend and we will be stuck watching the games on our non-theater size screen at home.

For noshing this past weekend, I made a rainbow Halloween cake using the special frostings and sprinkles.  I followed the directions provided by Cooking with Sugar.  Except for wearing the sailor suit at the end to show off the cake.

Here’s how my cake turned out:

The cool thing about this cake is that each time you make it, it will turn out different depending on how the multiple batters settle while baking.  And how you frost it.

I think you could modify the recipe to make various holiday themed cakes:

  • Green/Red/White for Christmas; Blue/White/Gold for Hanukkah; Black/Red/Green for Kwanzaa
  • Red/White/Pink for Valentine’s Day
  • Green/White/Orange for St. Patty’s Day
  • Pink/Yellow/Green (or other pastel colors) for Easter
  • Red/White/Blue for Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day

Or, for your favorite team.  Or high school graduation.  The possibilities are endless!

I can’t wait to make one in royal blue/yellow gold/white for my boys’ football team!
