Rainbow Cake:




  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • Gel food coloring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple)

For the Ice Cream Layers:

  • 1 quart each of vanilla, strawberry, and mint chocolate chip ice cream

For the Frosting:

  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Rainbow Cake Layers:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour three 8-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk. Mix until just combined.
  5. Divide the batter equally into six bowls. Add different gel food coloring to each bowl to create vibrant rainbow colors.
  6. Pour each colored batter into the prepared cake pans and smooth the tops.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool completely.

Assembling the Cake:

  1. Once the cake layers are cool, remove them from the pans.
  2. Place one layer on a serving plate. Spread a layer of vanilla ice cream on top.
  3. Repeat the process, alternating between cake and different ice cream flavors, finishing with a cake layer on top. Freeze the cake for at least 4 hours or until firm.


  1. In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and continue to whip until stiff peaks form.
  2. Frost the frozen cake with the whipped cream, covering it completely.
  3. Return the cake to the freezer for at least 1 hour to set the frosting.
