  • 1
    Begin by gathering your ingredients.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 350º F. Spray six 9-inch round cake pans with nonstick baking spray. Set aside.
  • 3
    In a large bowl or stand mixer, mix together cake mix, eggs, butter and water. Mix just until combined.
  • 4
    Separate 1 cup of cake batter into 6 small bowls. Tint 1 red or pink, 1 orange, 1 yellow, 1 neon green, 1 blue and 1 purple. Pour each color into a prepared cake pan.
  • 5
    Bake for 12-13 minutes, or just until the center of each cake sets, but not long enough for the cake to brown. Remove and cool completely before frosting.
  • 6
    To frost, place Rainbow Chip frosting in a large icing bag. Pipe icing about 1/4-inch from the edge of the purple cake, then pipe a swirl of icing around the inside of the cake.
  • 7
    Gently place the blue cake on top of the purple layer. Repeat with green, yellow, orange and pink layers.
  • 8
    Top with a thin layer of frosting and decorate with rainbow sprinkles.

Expert Tips

  • For best results, bake the cakes 1 day before frosting. That will give them plenty of time to cool and settle before stacking on top of each other!
