14 Rainbow Cakes For LGBT Pride Month That Are The Most Beautiful Things You’ve Ever Seen

If you ask me, there are few treats more lovely than rainbow cakes for pride month. There’s only one thing I love more than layered cakes, and it’s multicolored, rainbow, layered cakes. Show your LGBT love this month by recreating one of these masterpieces, or at the very least, to make one of these beauties for yourself. There are even a couple of surprises hidden in this batch (I may or may not be referring to a My Little Pony cake… just saying), so pull out your rainbow flag, the food coloring, and your non-stick round pans. Standing up for gay rights has never tasted so good (or looked so pretty)!

Rainbow Pride Cake

Today, for the NYC Gay Pride Parade, we prepared this gorgeous rainbow layered cake. In light of the recent Orlando attacks, we wanted to bake something that tasted like happiness & hope. The cake recipe was inspired by Smitten Kitchen’s Best Birthday Cake, but the colored cake layer stacking and Chefanie Sheet application was all us 😀

• Prepare 6 4-inch cake pans by spraying with canola oil.

• In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking power, baking soda, and salt.

• In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Then beat in vanilla. 

• Slowly add flour mixture until completely smooth. 

• Divide batter equally among 6 separate bowls and add food dye to each bowl to make red, orange (red + yellow food coloring), yellow, green (blue + yellow food coloring), blue, and purple (blue + red food coloring) cake batter.

• Pour each batter into prepared pans and bake for 30 minutes or until the tops are golden.

• While the cake is in the oven, whisk together ingredients for buttercream until fluffy. 

• Remove cakes from the oven cake to cool for 15 minutes and then remove from pan. 

• Once the cakes have cooled, spread buttercream in between each cake layer.

30 minutes active time, 1 hour total time. Serves 6.

Christian school expelled student over a ‘gay’ rainbow cake, family says

A 15-year-old student was expelled from Louisville’s Whitefield Academy, a private pre-K-12 Christian school, after her family said this photo of her celebrating her birthday was posted to social media and shared with school leaders. (Photo: Provided)

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A Christian school in Louisville expelled a student last week after her family said school officials discovered the girl had celebrated her birthday with a rainbow-themed cake.

Kimberly Alford told The Courier Journal that until Jan. 6, her 15-year-old daughter had been a freshman at Whitefield Academy, a private school at 7711 Fegenbush Lane that serves students in preschool through 12th grade.

That’s when Alford said she received an email from Whitefield Academy’s head of school, Bruce Jacobson, explaining how her daughter was being expelled “immediately due to a post on social media.”

Alford had recently posted a photo on her Facebook page showing her daughter celebrating her birthday in late December at a Texas Roadhouse restaurant. In the photo, the girl is wearing a sweater featuring a rainbow design and sitting by a colorful, rainbow-themed cake.

Alford said someone shared the Facebook photo with Whitefield Academy officials.

In the email, Alford said Jacobson wrote that the picture “demonstrates a posture of morality and cultural acceptance contrary to that of Whitefield Academy’s beliefs” and follows two years of “lifestyle violations.”

The rainbow flag often is used as a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer pride and support for LGBTQ rights.

But Alford said her daughter is not gay and the cake was simply a fun treat, with the bakery receipt listing the design as “assorted colors.”

Alford added that the Whitefield Academy Parent Teacher Fellowship has even featured a rainbow image on its private Facebook page before later taking it down after the expulsion of her daughter.

“I just feel like it’s a label (school officials) have put on her,” Alford said. “Just because I’m wearing a rainbow doesn’t mean I’m gay.”

Jacobson, Whitefield Academy’s head of school, told The Courier Journal that the expulsion came after “two years of continuous violations of our student code of conduct.”

Jacobson wouldn’t say whether the photo of the rainbow cake and shirt led to the expulsion but said the girl had faced “a progression of discipline.”

“All the families of students know that they have expectations they need to (follow),” Jacobson said. “We always try to work with families over a period of time.”

Alford said her daughter wears “tomboy-type clothing” from time to time and has always been athletic, but the photo of her with the rainbow cake and outfit “meant nothing.”

Alford said she and her daughter had met with school officials last October and that a school disciplinary officer found Juul pods in the girl’s backpack.

Following the meeting, Alford said everyone agreed that her daughter “would be on probation.”

“Any other behavior issues could cause her to be expelled,” Alford said. “Since October, there have been no disciplinary issues. There have been no academic issues. There has been nothing.”

According to Whitefield Academy’s parent/student handbook, high school students may face expulsion “when there is a serious departure from the school’s guidelines” for student conduct.

A section on student behavior says Whitefield’s “biblical role is to work in conjunction with the home to mold students to be Christ-like.”

“On occasion, the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home may be counter or in opposition to the biblical lifestyle the school teaches. This includes, but is not limited to, sexual immorality, homosexual orientation or the inability to support Biblical standards of right and wrong,” the handbook states.

“… In such cases, the school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student.”

The handbook adds that Whitefield Academy high school students face numerous disciplinary options before expulsion, including detention, disciplinary referrals and suspension.

The handbook adds that students and their parents or guardians may appeal expulsions within three days.

Alford said her appeal was denied. She said Jacobson told her the cake and the sweater “just kind of represents gay pride” and that Alford “should have refused the cake.”

Chris Hartman, executive director of the Fairness Campaign, a Louisville-based LGBTQ advocacy organization, said if the photo factored into the student’s expulsion, then the school’s action “seems incredibly outrageous.”

But he noted that Whitefield Academy, which is affiliated with Highview Baptist Church, has the authority to expel students who may go against its religious beliefs because of exemptions for faith-based schools in Louisville’s Fairness Ordinance.

Still, Hartman noted that a rainbow does not solely represent LGBTQ movements but is also mentioned in the Bible’s Book of Genesis as a symbol of God’s covenant with Noah following the flood.

“So the idea that they would eject someone for the simple display of a rainbow is ludicrous,” Hartman said.

Jacobson said he told the girl’s family that the expulsion could instead be classified as a “voluntary withdrawal” on her record if she applies to other schools.

Alford said her daughter is attending a public school and moving on from Whitefield Academy, a place she had attended since sixth grade. Support from friends at her former school and some in the school community has been “overwhelming,” Alford said.

“She’s adjusting really well, but she also seems stressed and overwhelmed at times,” Alford said. “I felt like (Whitefield Academy) had a positive impact on her, but I just feel like those religious beliefs they are imposing now are very judgmental. That’s not what I wanted for her.”

Jacobson, Whitefield Academy’s head of school, told The Courier Journal that the expulsion came after „two years of continuous violations of our student code of conduct.“ 

“Inaccurate media reports are circling stating that the student in question was expelled from our school solely for a social media post,“ the school said in a statement. „In fact, she has unfortunately violated our student code of conduct numerous times over the past two years.“

The school added that, „“Whitefield Academy is accredited by ACSI/AdvancEd and a member of the Non Public School Commission of Kentucky, and therefore we meet all Kentucky regulations and laws. Our code of conduct is on par with other private Christian schools in our area. It is unfortunate that one of the student’s parents chose to post internal family matters on social media, and we hope our former student is not adversely affected by what her parents chose to make public about her situation.”

Jacobson wouldn’t say whether the photo of the rainbow cake and shirt led to the expulsion but said the girl had faced „a progression of discipline.“

Louisville Christian school expelled student over a rainbow cake, family says

It all started with Chris Farias, a creative director in Hamilton, Ontario. He and his fiancé Jared love a good cake after a long day, and this time he decided to make a statement.

To celebrate a year of their engagement, Farias called up Cake and Loaf Bakery in Hamilton and asked for the gayest cake they could make.

„With what’s going on in the world I really wanted to show that in Canada we really celebrate diversity and I wanted the gayest cake ever,“ he told BuzzFeed Canada.

The task went to cake decorator Quinn Pallister. As the child of two moms, she wanted to make something special.

„Seeing my moms being part of the LGBT community, it’s just really important to me that everybody feels included,“ she said.

„I never got to make them a wedding cake, so this was like making something for everybody that’s part of the community.“

The result is a towering, rainbow-hued cake, topped with gold and a unicorn horn, with identities and affirmations surrounding the whole thing. There’s even rainbow sprinkles inside.

When Farias came to pick it up, he was overwhelmed. „She showed it to me and I just started crying and gave her a huge hug. It was everything — it was just right.“

It was an emotional moment for the whole bakery, including owner Nicole Miller. She told BuzzFeed Canada that, just a few years ago, she made a wedding cake for a gay couple who’d been rejected by other bakeries in the area.

„We really want to embody a positive, all-inclusive safe space for all of our employees and customers,“ she said.

I just made different colors in bowls and then poured them into the cake pans a little at a time. Same rainbow of colors, but only two layers.

[…] the one from the recipe I was following (image from […]

My friend and I just made this cake! Excellent. Thank you!

” I do kind of go into “baking mode” when I work, especially when I’m alone. I concentrate completely on the task at hand, and it feels good. I have a friend who loves running because it clears his mind and lets him focus, and this happens when I’m in the kitchen. Even though I was doing the same recipe over and over, it didn’t feel repetitive, and I even enjoy the feeling of being busy. ”

Just found your blog when I wass looking for others who’d made Dorie’s Perfect Party Cake. Mine have come out flat- less than 1/2 ” per layer. And I have to take a cake for 24 adults :(I spent ages reading the recipe to get it right, and I’m you have any advice?I love your cake. The colours are beautiful!And I’m looking forward to reading all your posts once this cake is iced and done 🙂

Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

You realize that the “pride” cake supports the LGBTP ? I was molested by a homosexual at age 14, and this is disturbing to me.

What cake recipe is best for rainbow cake?

So the first thing that we have to do is bake our rainbow layers. This might sound intimidating but it’s actually really easy. 

We’re going to use my favorite cake, white velvet. Not only. is this cake delicious, but it’s also very white so it will take the color well.

If you try to add color to a vanilla cake that has egg yolks in it, those yolks will distort your colors while baking. 

The other reason white velvet is perfect for making a rainbow cake is that it won’t get over-mixed when you add the color.

I’ve added color to white velvet so many times, making everything from pink velvet, green velvet, and even blue velvet. The texture always turns out amazing.

Heute haben wir ein ganzes Farben-Feuerwerk für euch mit dabei.

Denn gemeinsam mit Barefoot-Wine feiern wir den Digital Pride 2017.

Diese setzen sich schon seit über 25 Jahren für Toleranz, Solidarität und wohltätige Zwecke im Allgemeinen ein. Dabei unterstützen die Barefooter mehr als 100 LQBTQ-Organisationen!

Die Teilnahme hieran war für uns Ehrensache, denn wir wissen es mehr als zu schätzen, dass wir als schwules Paar in Deutschland frei und

offen leben dürfen. Es gibt zwar immer noch Baustellen, aber die generelle Freiheit genießen wir jeden Tag.

Der Digital Pride wird dieses Jahr zum zweiten Mal eine Pride-Veranstaltung im Netz durchführen, zu der jeder mit PC oder Smartphone Zugang hat. Also auch jeder, der LGBTQ-Community aus Ländern, in denen es keinen Pride gibt oder Homosexualität gar verboten ist. Letztes Jahr konnte man so über 25 Millionen Menschen in 240 Ländern weltweit erreichen.

Also haben wir uns unter dem Motto „Cake & Wine“ einige Freunde eingeladen und die Freiheit gefeiert. Dazu gab es passend, unseren ersten Rainbow-Cake und der ist einfach grandios geworden – gemeinsam mit dem leckeren Wein von Barefoot, ebenfalls in den Farben des Regenbogens, ein echter Partykracher. Kuchen ist nämlich nicht nur was für die Kaffeetafel bei Oma, sondern in allen Lebenslagen ein toller Begleiter.

Aber außer dieser Farbexplosion haben wir noch weitere, auch herzhafte Leckereien, farblich zubereitet, damit es nicht zu süß blieb.

Wir hatten auf jeden Fall eine Menge Spaß und einfach einen wundervollen Abend mit Freunden. Denn genau das ist es, was wir lieben. Und dabei genau so zu sein, wie wir eben sind und keine Sekunde damit zu verbringen, Angst zu haben.

In vielen Ländern der Erde muss man diese leider haben, also lasst uns unsere Freiheit hier feiern und gleichzeitig den Blick auf die Länder richten, in denen das nicht so ist.

Also ab mit dem Wein in den Kühlschrank, die Torte gebacken, die Liebsten eingeladen und die Party kann starten.
