Rainbow Cake

Aleta Meadowlark of the cleverly named Omnomicon blogged about her recipe on how to make this awesomely psychedelic rainbow cake: Link - via Unique Daily

What I want to know is this: will it make you poo rainbow?

That cake is awesome.

Though, now I'm kind of scared to bake and eat it because of Alex's poo comment.

Must you put those weird mental images into my head? :D

My wife and I have made several rainbow cakes for friends in the last year, and the reactions are always terrific. I don't even like cake, but it's so great to see people gasp with delight when you cut them a slice.
You can also make rainbow cupcakes!

Years ago I think Betty Crocker used to have a special set of cake pans, which allowed you to make a checkered cake or a rainbow cake.

My background is in food sciences. To answer the poo question: No. Not a rainbow. But if you were to eat the whole cake, your poo may be an odd teal green color.
It has to do with how your stomach and bowels process the food and dye. I am sort of happy that I did not miss that week of class. For many years later I am able to answer a question about poo on an internet blog.

I think this originated from under the forums "Goons with Spoons" I just made one on Monday and put the 'quasi' instructions on my facebook (the album is tagged so anyone can view it as long as they are logged in).
