A Day of Babysitting and Cake

Well apparently when I babysit, kids have something with cracking eggs. Not really sure why, but they do. This one was on accident… at least that I know of. I can see you’re quite concerned over the egg lying on the floor, girls. 

Then again when you’re babysitting for 8 hours, the kids are going to have to find something to entertain themselves with. Which is why we made rainbow cake. It still tickles me pink how amazed they were. They took some of the pictures, did most all of the baking, and found the recipes. When we were done they kept scrolling through the pictures and pointing to the first picture, I can’t believe we started here!

Simple White Cake
1 cup white sugar
1 stick butter
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350
Cream the sugar and butter, slowly add eggs and vanilla
Stir in the flour and baking powder slowly
Add the milk and stir by hand until just incorporated
(If doing the rainbow cake- divide the batter into as many bowls as you want colors and add colors in each until desired color is reached.)
Pour each color into the pan on top of the next– it will push the batter to the edges on its own
Bake for 25-35 minutes.

Bake it..

We couldn’t find a frosting recipe that used only one stick of butter so we just made one up! It was good and not sickening-kind of sweet which would have been fabulous if the cake was sweeter.

  1. What a happy little cake! Love all those colors. Makes me smile 🙂
