Rainbow Cake PopsDon't let these rainbows fool you. These are not the traditional rainbows made with almond paste. These are cake pops and they are amazing! Instead of making cake balls, you are laying the layers into a loaf pan. The mixture will taste amazing as it gets layered with jam. Once chilled, you dip it into melted chocolate using a microwave-safe bowl. You could even use melted white chocolate if you prefer that. I used small bowls to color each layer and tried to use the order of the rainbow. You could even make rainbow cake balls if you prefer. I used candy coating (candy melts) for the chocolates. I also made homemade vanilla frosting to combine with the cake batter once it was baked. The cake layer was easy to make right in your mixer. Chill the layers for a few hours and you have the perfect dessert. I love to add rainbow sprinkles, on top, too!
