Rainbow Cake with Milk

We have started a new tradition this year with our birthday cakes. When it is ones birthday they get to challenge us (me) to a unique birthday cake just for them. Unique meaning the flavor of the cake not the decorating of them, once I get the baking down we will talk about the decorating. We came up with this idea after making a cake known as the better than sex cake for a special occasion. My family loved the cake and wanted one for their birthday, but with their own twist. Not only are we having fun doing it but we have saved our family a total of $229.90 this year.

Purchased Cake $38.00 for a nine inch round

Homemade Cake Average cost of $8.00 to $10.00.

Savings for each cake about $29.00

Rainbow Cake with Milk

1 box Rainbow Cake Mix
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 small container of cool wipe
1 8 oz. cream cheese
Powder Sugar
Mini M&M’s

Bake cake to the packaged directions

Let cool for about 15 minutes. After cake has cooled for 15 minutes pock holes using the end of a wooden spoon. About 1 hole every ½ inch to an inch. Next drizzle the condensed milk over the top of the cake. Let cool and frost with frosting.


Mix with mixer room temperature cream cheese with powder sugar. Add powder sugar to the desired sweetness. Once you have the cream cheese and powder sugar mixed together fold in the container of cool whip.
