Tuesday is May Day and what better way is there to celebrate Spring than with a beautiful rainbow cake. So, I whipped up this Rainbow Instant Pot Boxed Cake to Celebrate the Beginning of Spring.
Don’t look at me that way. I know technically Spring began March 20th. But if you are on the East Coast where I live, it hasn’t felt much like Spring. At least not until lately. Which makes me think maybe that’s why in Europe they don’t celebrate the beginning of Spring until May 1st. In Europe May 1st is know as May Day and it’s the celebration of Spring.
And what better way to celebrate Spring than with a colorful cake. And if you make the cake in a pressure cooker it’s so quick you can spend time doing something a little extra. Like adding color. Or adding color and a rainbow. Since this recipe is all about saving time, I jazzed up this “boxed” cake with milk and butter. My little was super excited to see it. And I was happy to be able to give him something special to take to school to celebrate Spring.
