Link to the original recipe: CLICK HERE. This site has some other amazing looking cakes in a jar - I love them because they are not only single serving, but they are so decorative!
I love how I come across other awesome things as I browse... Lily is most definitely going to have a Unicorns and Rainbows birthday party when she turns 1 in November.

Rainbow Cake in a Jar
- 1 box white cake mix made according to package instructions
- Neon food coloring in pink, yellow, green, turquoise, and purple
- 3 one-pint canning jars
- 1 can vanilla frosting
- Rainbow sprinkles
Scoop about 1/2 cups of cake batter into five small bowls. It doesn’t have to be perfect, don’t panic if you get a little more of less of one color than another. Tint each bowl of cake batter with the food coloring until very vibrant.
Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the purple batter into the bottom of each jar. Spoon equal amounts of turquoise batter, then green, yellow, and pink. Place the jars in a shallow baking dish, add about 1/4″ in water in the baking dish. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes.
Remove jars and allow to cool completely before scooping a small portion from the top of your cake and adding a hefty dollop of vanilla buttercream to the top. Sprinkle & serve, or cover with a lid and store in the fridge or pop into the mail & surprise someone you love!
When I make this in November, I'll let you all know how it turns out! I can't wait to plan Lily's 1st Birthday Party!
