Oh, and they’re easy to serve too! Just slice and plate and all your party guests will enjoy a festive swirl of cake filled with rainbow chip frosting. What's more colorful than that?
To make the cakes, you'll need to line two 9x13 baking pans with parchment paper or non-stick tin foil. Then make the cake batter and divide it into 6 bowls.
Use Betty Crocker™ Gel Colors to color individual bowls of batter purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.
Pour the batter into disposable pastry bags or large zip-top bags.
Snip the tip off the bags and begin piping really thin layers of colored stripes at an angle across one pan.
Start with a purple stripe, and then add blue, green, yellow, orange, and red. Continue until you fill each pan.
Bake the cakes for about 10 minutes, until the cakes spring back when touched. Remove and set each cake over the top of a kitchen towel that has been lightly dusted with powdered sugar.
Un-mold cake and peel off parchment paper.
Immediately roll cake (along with towel) into a roll and let sit for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix together the Betty Crocker™ Rainbow Chip frosting along with the whipped topping. For an extra boost of color and a bit of candy crunch, stir in one or two bags of Betty Crocker™ Candy Shop Decors Rainbow Chips.
When cakes are ready, carefully unroll. Spread half of the frosting over top of each cake.
Re-roll cakes and allow them to cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
