In Response to Re: St. Patrick's Day:
The kids and I make our rainbow cake and share it with the class, You buy a white cake mix and make it according to the recipe on the box then divide the batter into 6 different colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple -like the rainbow- then layer them into the greased bundt or angelfood pan- layer starting with purple, then -blue, green, yellow orange and last red on top- bake it and then take a knife and go around the edges of the pan to loosen the cake from it- turn it upside down on a plate and you will see all the colors- I sent in canned spray whipped cream to squirt on each slice and we gave each child a gold coin for the pot of gold! We love it! Hope you enjoy it too!

I saw a recipe on the King Arthur Flour Site for a Zebra cake. You make a white cake and add cocoa to half then you put a bit of the white in the center of the pan, round one, then you place a bit of white right in the center of the chocolate then white in the center of that then keep repeating. Each addition fans out the batter and when the cake is cut you have white and dark stripes. At least this is a general description as to how it is made.
Check it out. http://www.kingarthurflour.com search for Zebra Cake in the recipe search bar.
