Miraculous Rainbow Cake

Materials

      • Vanilla Cake Mix
      • Eggs
      • Water
      • Oil
      • Butter
      • Small circular pan
      • Vanilla icing
      • Chocolate icing
      • Whisk
      • Big Bowl
      • 5 Small bowls
      • Food coloring (5 different colors)
      • Oven
      • Sprinkles
      • Plastic container (to put cake)

      Procedure

      •   First, you set the oven to 350 degrees,
      • Then, you get your big bowl and mix the vanilla cake mix with the eggs oil and water.
      • Smear butter all on the bottom of the pan for each cakes color that you do so that when you take out the cake, it won't stick
      • Then, you poor an equal amount of the cake mix into your 4 small bowls.
      • Then, you add a color of food coloring into each one of the small bowls with the cakes mixes and make sure the color turns out bright.
      • Then, pour one small bowls into the small circle pan and put it in the hot oven.
      • Wait about 10-15 minutes and check if it’s ready.
      • Take all the cakes out the pans
      • Then, repeat this for the next 5 colors.
      • When they are all finished, let each cake cool down.
      •   When the cakes are cooled down, place your vanilla icing in between each layer so they can they stick together to make a rainbow.
      • When all layers are put together, get your chocolate icing and smear it all around the whole cake
      • Lastly, place sprinkles all around the cake.

      Comparison

      This cake in the market is way cheaper, tastier, and very beautiful. It is well worth it rather than a basic cake and a rainbow cake.

      This cake is only $12.99 and the rest of the basic cakes in stores is $14.97.

      My cakes has no harm to the environment but these other cakes do because they are made in factories, which causes pollution.

      Relation to Chemistry

      1) When you measure out the ingredients, you're acknowledging the fact that only certain ratios of ingredients will actually produce the thing you want. This is a lot like the chemical idea of stoichiometry.

      2) When you stir them around, the mixing allows the reagents/ingredients to come into contact with one another so that they might bake. This is chemical kinetics.

      3) When you stick this stuff in the oven, you're saying that energy is needed for this to occur. The baking of a cake is thermodynamically exothermic.

      4) When you wait around, you're also doing what chemists do - synthetic chemists spend a lot of time online while waiting for reactions to finish. At least, I did.

      5) When you take the cake out, you're acknowledging that the cake is suitable for consumption. In chemistry, we use analytical methods to determine whether something is pure enough to use.

      6) When you frost the cake, you're making it ready for final consumption. Because most chemicals that are produced are later manipulated to make products able to sale, that's a lot like the final touches in a reaction.
