We’ve discovered the recipe to happiness! Take equal parts butter, sugar, and rainbows, pop it in the oven, and watch your day brighten instantly! Each of these gorgeous Technicolor cakes are different, but we guarantee that no one turn down a slice. The one above features six layers in different colors, with a plain white buttercream in between to highlight the bold colors. (We recommend using gel food coloring, as it comes out much brighter than liquid food coloring.)

These single-serving cupcakes are made by dropping different colors in the center of the cupcake tin. As they bake, the batter rises and mingles into different patterns. Great for bakers who want to create an element of surprise!
