Rainbow jiggles

Try this idea for rainbow-hued Jell-O cups featured over at Glorious Treats. You’ll need a lineup of different flavors, Cool Whip, and chocolate coins to assemble this colorful treat. Each layer needs to firm up for 15 to 30 minutes before adding the next layer, so you’ll also need to hold the attention of your brood for several hours, but the end result is worth it!

Edible rainbow

It’s an edible rainbow for Pride! This idea at San Diego Cooks features strawberries, clementines, pineapple, green grapes, blackberries, and purple grapes – a lovely rainbow centerpiece for your celebration. Mini-marshmallows form clouds on one end, and sliced bananas on the other!

Even the smallest hands can celebrate pride with this rainbow collage from No Time for Flash Cards! To make your own colorful collage, you'll need a variety of rainbow-colored scraps, a large “color-by-numbers” rainbow, and little helpers who are ready to sort and glue. The kiddos will learn the colors of the rainbow and you’ll have a masterpiece any Leprechaun would be happy to chase!


Classic rainbow layer cake

Featured on Whisk Kid, it doesn't get much better (or more colorful) than this epic rainbow birthday cake that gives Rainbow Brite a serious run for her money!

Made out of colorful layers of cake with a lemony Swiss meringue buttercream, Whisk Kid Kaitlin recommends using gel food coloring rather than liquid to achieve the vibrant colors in this tall rainbow-rrific cake. Check out the rest of the post for the full recipe -- there's also a link included for when Kaitlin made this cake on The Martha Stewart Show (wow!), and a fun time-lapse video of this cake being made by one of Kaitlin's readers.
