How to Make Rainbow Crepe Cake

Whisk the flour and sugar in a bowl. Beat in the eggs then pour in the milk and butter, alternating between the two.

Pour the batter into 6 bowls. Stir one color of food coloring in each bowl.

Heat a non-stick pan and lightly grease with butter or cooking spray. Pour 1/3 cup of purple batter into the pan. Once the crepe begins to form bubbles on the top, flip it, and cook for another minute or so. Repeat with all of the batters until everything has been used.

Stack the crepes in the following order: purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red. Between each layer, add the whipped cream.

Decorate the outside of the cake with whipped cream, and serve.


You'll need about 1 tablespoon of each color of food coloring, but you can use more for deeper, more intense colors, or less for paler pastel shades.
