What not to do while baking a rainbow cake

  • don't forget to spray and flour the cake pans
  • don't forget to level out the cake batter in the pan before putting in the oven (it will turn out crooked if you don't)
  • don't be a sam ( BIG NO NO)
  • don't forget to enjoy yourself :)
  • don't put the colors in the wrong order
  • don't let the icing melt
  • dont ice them while still hot
  • don't mix all of the food coloring colors together in the left over batter and try to make a "pretty color"
