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?!Kool-Aid Rainbow Cake

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

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

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:Kool-Aid Rainbow Cake

-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.Kool-Aid Rainbow Cake

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

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

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.Kool-Aid Rainbow Cake


7. Bake for 35 minutes at 325 degrees F. Once finished let cool for 30 minutes.

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

This cake came out perfect and was a hit with my whole family. With the summer coming up, I can’t wait to serve this cake with a nice glass or perhaps a pitcher of the Kool-Aid Easy Mix. So easy…Yet so refreshing. There is no need to spend a lot of time in the kitchen to serve wonderful drinks and food. Simply buy some Kool-Aid Easy Mix and you are on your way to having the perfect and refreshing drink all spring and summer long!11178199_10153243887779356_8499255354188187649_n

    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!
