THE DAILY IOWAN
The sight of one of Michaelyn Miller’srainbow cakes couldleave some leprechauns looking for gold. And over the past 25 years,it has left hundreds of childrenand adults looking for their own tasteof a “rainbow cake”from Cakes byMichaelyn.Today,Cakes by Michaelyn nolonger generates the colorfuldesserts.Miller,57,retired in 2005after battling two bouts of cancer innearly10 years.But the history behind Cakes byMichaelyn dates backnearly threedecades.Miller began actively baking while in Germany with herhusband,who was stationed there in the Army.After return-ing to America in 1982,the rainbow cake was conceived.“A girlfriend and I were canning together,and she hadshown me some crazy cupcakes that she had made,and Isaid,‘We could elaborate on that and do all the colors of God’srainbow,’ ”Miller said as she prepared a 13-by-9-inch versionof the vibrant dessert.“I always promised when I reallyretired,I would divulge how rainbow cake was done.”Whichis what she did this weekend.Miller’s recipe begins with two boxes of Betty Crockerwhite cake mix — she insists that Betty Crocker mix is theonly brand that will make the cake taste right.
