I don’t know about you but when I think of summer, I think of food and drinks. Do you all agree? I love to host picnics at my house but I also don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen to prepare. Thankfully, Kool-Aid has it covered for all of us to host parties and supply a delicious and easy drink, simultaneously. I have been a Kool-Aid fan for many years but now they have Kool-Aid Easy Mix products that allow you to serve and enjoy. Seriously…What could be better?!DSC 10561 Kool Aid Rainbow Cake Recipe!

Since the hot weather is finally upon us, I decided to head to my local Walmart to purchase some of the Kool-Aid Easy Mix products in three delicious flavors-Cherry, Tropical Punch, Grape. I readily found them in the drink section and stocked my cart with them. What I love about these awesome Kool-Aid Easy Mix products is they provide me a way to provide a quick, easy, and convenient way to make a drink. All you have to add is simply add water and you will have the perfect drink for those hot summer months coming up!unnamed 3 Kool Aid Rainbow Cake Recipe!

I knew this would be my drink of choice this summer because not only is it delicious but it provides 50 percent less sugar than leading soda brands. A score if you ask me! It will also allow you to make a glass of it or a pitcher of it, if you want to section out for the week( makes 6 quarts or 3 pitcher).DSC 1066 Kool Aid Rainbow Cake Recipe!

Since I bought so many of these, I decided to try out a new recipe that I experimented with, to incorporate the Kool-Aid Easy Mix and cake. Sounds delicious?! If you said yes, you are correct. It is a superb recipe and one that I like to call Kool-Aid Rainbow cake!

Kool-Aid Rainbow Cake

Ingredients:DSC 1063 Kool Aid Rainbow Cake Recipe!

-2 containers of the Kool-Aid Easy Mix

-1 container whipped topping

- 6 eggs

-1 cup vegetable oil

-1 cup water

-2 ready made cake mixes



1. Take each of the two ready made cake mixes and put each in separate bowl.  Add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 cup water (or follow ingredients on your package) and stir. Do not stir to full consistency till later.DSC 1067 Kool Aid Rainbow Cake Recipe!

2. In small bowls, pour 1/2 cup of each of the three flavors of Kool-Aid Easy mix. Do this twice. You should have a total of 6 bowls- 2 bowls with each of the Kool-Aid Easy Mix (Cherry, Tropical Punch, Grape).

3. Separate batter from #1 into 6 small bowls.DSC 1070 Kool Aid Rainbow Cake Recipe!

4. In each of the batter small bowls from #3, add one of the six bowls of Kool-Aid Easy mix from #2. In total, you will have 6 bowls.DSC 1071 Kool Aid Rainbow Cake Recipe!

5. Now add the same color bowls together. The reason I did this was I found each bowl to be too liquidity so I combined each of the same colors to have a total of three different colored bowls, each with a separate color.

6. Now start layering. Add one bowl cake batter at a time. Make sure each sets a bit before adding your next layer. Your cake will have three layers in total.DSC 1076 Kool Aid Rainbow Cake Recipe!

8. Decorate your cake with whipped topping and sprinkles. Enjoy!DSC 1082 Kool Aid Rainbow Cake Recipe!

    What a beautiful cake! I love the new Kool-Aid ready mixes. I made a Kool-Aid Cherry Pie and it’s now a family favorite. I bet they would love your rainbow cake, too! Kool-Aid always makes me smile!

    I’ve always loved anything Kool-Aid. I agree that it’s one of the best drinks for summer. And, it’s cool that it adds a nice twist to our regular cakes – it makes baking extra fun!

    When I think of summer, I also think of food and drinks but also there should be time spent for exercise to burn all the calories. :) Te Kool-Aid Easy Mix products have wonderful flavors that taste really good.

    We don’t have Kool-Aid here in Ireland so I have no idea what it tastes like. This looks like such a lovely cake though!
