>As always I am looking for new ways to entertain…and food is a very important aspect of your party…specially kids parties… and I am trying to think out of the box, fun recipes that my kids and my kids’ guests can eat at my party.

To Start I found this great “Diet” Rainbow Cake Recipe…it’s even fun to make with the kids!
The colors look gorgeous!!! What a great cake for a summer party, a rainbow theme party, or even a Fairy party!!!
I found this recipe at  Omnomicon check out her blog for more fun recipes!!!

Sunny Day Rainbow Cake
  • 2 boxes white cake mix
  • 24 oz of clear diet soda (2 cans, ginger ale and sprite work well)
  • gel food colouring
  • 16 oz whipped topping
  • 2 oz instant fat-free sugar-free pudding mix (2 smallish boxes)
The Dieting
Mix the cake mix with the soda according to regular instructions on box. It will be lumpy afterward. Again, you can use any white cake recipe you want, this is just how I do it.

The Rainbowing

Measure the total volume (by my estimate, 64 oz), then divide by 6 and measure into separate bowls. There are 8 oz in a cup, so 64/6 = 10 to 11 oz, or 1 cup + 2 tbsp.

Stir colour into each bowl with its own spoon. For the first colour into the pan, measure out 2/3 to 3/4 of your mix (in this case about 1 c) as close to the middle as you can. Drop in your first three colours, then work on the other pan with the last three colours. So if you’re doing rainbow order, the first pan should have red, then orange, then yellow, and now the purple, blue and green go into the second pan. As a recap, this is so both layers are roughly the same size.
Bake the cake for however long the box tells you to bake it. Check it when the box says to, but usually it’ll need an extra 5 or 10 minutes or maybe more because of the density of the soda method. Just keep baking, checking back every 5 minutes or so until a toothpick to the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before moving to a wire rack.

The Frostinging
Meanwhile, make your frosting. Just mix the pudding mix in with the whipped topping for a few minutes. Dye if you’re into that.

Frost your fat-free cake with your fat-free whipped frosting. Eat.
