Original Pin…

My cake…

So I did not follow the recipe exactly, because well it had no rainbow chip, and a cake without rainbow chip is simply not a cake worth baking.  According to the critics…

It was delicious! BOOM baby you’re a firrreeeworrkkkk!

Ingredients

  • 1 box of Rainbow Chip Cake Mix
  • 1 box of Cherry Chip Cake Mix
  • 1 can of Rainbow Chip Frosting 
  • 1 can of Whipped White Frosting
  • Red + Blue food coloring
  • Watermelon Pop Rocks
  • Sprinkles!
  • 3 cups 7-up
  • 4 egg whites

Directions

For the blue layers:

  • Mix rainbow cake mix with 2 egg whites and 1 1/2 cups 7up
  • Divide batter evenly between 3 medium-size bowls
  • Start with the dark blue first and I think I added like 30 drops 
  • Then 8 drops to the second 
  • And only 1 drop to the third 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until a fork placed in the middle of the cake comes out clean (THIS IS CRUCIAL UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR CAKE TO COLLAPSE)  which may or may not have happened the first go around…
  • Let cool COMPLETELY
  • Start with the dark blue, add a pretty thin layer of icing and the next layer, more icing, and the next
  • Put in the fridge to cool as you move on to the red layers

  • Mix cherry chip cake mix with 2 egg whites and 1 1/2 cups 7up
  • Divide batter evenly between 3 medium-size bowls
  • Start with the dark red first and I think I added like 50 drops 
  • Then 8 drops to the second 
  • And only 0 drops to the third as the WHITE layer
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until a fork placed in the middle of the cake comes out clean 
  • Let cool COMPLETELY
  • Start with the white layer, then light red, then RED
  • Ice the whole thing!
  • Cover with pop rocks and sprinkles!
