Exposed Naked Rainbow Cake with DIY Tips & Supplies List

Exposed Naked Rainbow Cake 
Cakes by Raychel

This First Birthday Exposed Rainbow Cake is exactly how I envisioned it to be. If you're a huge lover of exposed cakes then you will love this beautiful Exposed Rainbow Cake! It's so easy to DIY! There's something so rustic and gorgeous about an exposed cake. I just love them!

I'm not a big fan of icing, so this is the perfect amount of sweetness for my sweet tooth. 

#1. Mix white (even yellow) cake mix with your AmeriColor Food Coloring until it's blended. Put the colorful mixture into a cake pan and bake. Do the same thing for each color in the same sized cake pan. 

TIP: If your cake is cooked too golden for the beautiful colors to show use a serrated knife and cut around the cake edges. Freeze the cake for 15 minutes before doing so. This will create less crumbs as you're cutting. A better option is to find a large bowl big enough to use as a cutter. Like an over sized cookie cutter.

#2. Once your cake is cooled, ice the top with your favorite icing.

#3. Stack your colors in the order you would like. Press down firmly.

Tip: If your tall cake is too wobbly put it into the fridge. The stiffer the frosting the sturdier the cake.

#4. Place a long cake dowel inside the cake to keep it from falling over.

#5.  Create Sprinkles from crumbled cake pieces for the top of your rainbow cake.

I used AmeriColor Food Coloring in Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, blue, & Sky Blue. You can get your own pack here...

If you have just one cake pan this may take awhile, but it will be worth the wait.
Here's the 6" cake pans I used...

DIY Rainbow Flag...

This rainbow flag is ribbon folded and glued over a cake dowel. Cut and heat seal the ends of the ribbon so it doesn't fray. Easy as pie (or should I say cake).

Save some of your batter from each cake color to make rainbow cupcakes!

Have a great day!
