As kids, I'm sure we've all wondered what's at the end of a rainbow...is there really a pot of gold or a hidden treasure? Well, we might never reach the end of the rainbow but I think I just found the pot of gold in this awesome rainbow-in-a-jar recipe.
When I saw this recipe, I wanted to bake it right away. It couldn't be any simpler - all you need is a box of cake mix, a can of frosting, and food coloring (of course, you can make all of this from scratch too). You'll also need a few cute jars. As I have a love for all things "mason jar", I used a few of the many I have throughout the house (used as vases, to hold crafts, as soap dispensers, etc). You can find the jars in the baking aisle of your local supermarket, usually sold in cases, or online here (another tip: I also like to use them to gift baked goods, as they are cheaper and way cuter than paper boxes).
So go ahead and brighten up that special someone's day by baking this super simple and delicious recipe- it's bound to make you, to quote Stevie Wonder, "the sunshine of my (their) life." :)
Here are a few photos of the ones I made:
|This reminds me of dying Easter eggs|
|My layering of the colors are a little uneven|
|Perfect for a kid's birthday...or a grown-ups party :)|
|hmmm....doesn't the frosting remind you of clouds?|
|Looks more tie-dyed than rainbowish...|
|hmm..with cookies and soda pop :)|
|They are also so easy to store for later- or to package as gifts!|
|Or stack them in your fridge...|
