Rainbow Cake

Hello wonderful Shortie Cake fans!
Today, we're making rainbow cake. This cake was made from box mix, and while it may be time consuming, the outcome is definitely worth it!
The layers are beautiful, it starts from red then goes down, in the colors of the rainbow.
The ingredients are quite simple and you can decorate it any way you'd like.
The outside may seem to be a plain, boring cake, but as soon as you cut it open it's like a unicorn exploding-exactly why we put a unicorn on top.
This cake is not the most professional cake-it was made by 5 seventh graders over a period of 120 minutes and 3 days.
It says: "Don't judge a cake by its fondant"



There is a handmade fondant/rice krispie treat unicorn on top, attached by toothpicks.
I did not expect much out of the taste of the box mix cake and store bought frosting, but it tasted surprisingly like a professional cake!
