Rainbow Cake Photo Tutorial

Prepare a white cake mix as directed and divide into 6 even amounts
Note: My cake mix called for egg whites only, but I added the whole egg as it didn't have to be pure white. 
I had 2/3 cup of batter in each bowl

Add food coloring

Pour 3/4 of red into pan 1 and 3/4 of purple into pan 2
Pour 2/3 of orange into pan 1 and 2/3 of blue into pan 2
Pour 1/2 of yellow into pan 1 and 1/2 of green into pan 2
Pour 1/2 of green into pan 1 and 1/2 of yellow into pan 2
Pour 1/3 of blue into pan 1 and 1/3 of orange into pan 2
Pour 1/4 of purple into pan 1 and 1/4 of red into pan 2

I dragged a toothpick through to make it "tie dyed" but it wasn't noticable in the finished cake, so not needed!

Turn out and cool completely

Frost between the layers
