I didn't know what to get my mom for mothers day and finally she told me she wanted a cake so I made her a CAKE! This is also my first post here in the cooking boards. I got up Sunday morning and decided to make a rainbow layer cake for my mom. I just used a regular yellow cake mix and used food coloring and strawberry mixed with vanilla frosting. Here are the many pics of the cake. Its 5 layers.
All the colors.

This was my first time making a rainbow cake and my first layer cake and my first time trying to do that with the icing. The icing was really to runny to do that right. After making it I didn't even try any of it until today because I had already spent so much time with it. lol Thanks for looking!

Holy cow that's an epic cake!  Each layer is like a work of art.  What a great gift.
