How to Make a Rainbow Cake

Step 1:
Mix cake batter and separate evenly into plastic cups.  Add desired food coloring to each cup and stir well.  (I wanted a lot of small sections of color, so I divided the batter into 24 cups, using 6 different colors. So 4 cups of each color.)
Step 2:
Pour contents of each cup into pan. For best results, pay close attention to the distribution and arrangement of color. Do not stir or swirl!  To level batter, drop pan forcefully and repetitively on countertop. (Steve came into the kitchen while I was doing this because he thought I was mad and throwing things around. :P)

Valentines Day Cookies

Hey everyone! I've gotten a few more subscribers lately, so to celebrate, I thought I'd pop on and show you a picture of some sugar cookies  I made at work.


 I have to admit, ever since we started decorating these for V-day, I've been eating a lot more of them. :P

I didn't really have any supplies to use at work, so it's pretty user friendly.
  • Just cut a heart shape in a piece of wax paper and brush pink frosting over the stencil.  
  • You could use a pastry bag with a tip (or even just cut a hole in the corner of a ziploc bag) to do any lettering.

If you want to make your own, I've got a super super easy (and delish!) recipe and instructions here for my Valentine's Day Heart Shaped Sugar Cookies  seen below.

Enjoy! :D
