Rainbow Tie Dye Cake

Step one:
Prepare your favorite white cake mix. Divide mixture into 6 bowls, and make each bowl a different color with food dye. (I used red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.)

Step two:
Grease two 9 inch cake pans with butter, pam spray or whatever you prefer.

Step three:
Layer cake batter in concentric circles. Use roughly 3/4 of the bowl for your bottom color. Then, gradually use a little less of each color as you continue.

Step four:
Bake your cake as directed, and make sure not to overcook.

Step five:
Allow the cake to cool cool completely, frost/decorate as desired and enjoy!

My cake is far from perfect, but I wanted to show how I "tie dye" a cake. I had so many people ask how it was done, so I thought posting a blog would be easiest.
