Rainbow Layer Cake Recipe
- 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
- 1 cups granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon Wilton Imitation
- Clear Vanilla Extract
- ¾ cup milk
- 4 egg whites

- ¾ cup solid vegetable shortening
- ¾ cup (1½ sticks) butter or margarine, softened
- 1½ teaspoons Wilton Imitation
- Clear Vanilla Extract
- 6 cups (about 1½ lbs.) sifted confectioners' sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons milk

1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Prepare pans with vegetable pan spray.

2. In medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and
fluy. Add egg whites one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add vanilla and beat well. Add flour mixture to butter mixture
alternately with milk; beat until just combined. If desired, tint portions
of cake batter with icing color. Divide evenly into prepared pans.

done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes
on cooling grid; remove from pans and cool completely.

until light and fluy. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a
time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl
often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Gradually
add milk; beat at medium speed until light and fluy.

board or serving plate. Spread a layer of icing to edges of cake. Top with
second cake. Repeat with remaining icing and cake. Ice top and sides of cake.
