Letting the sun shine in {#LMDconnector}

In the May issue of the Life Made Delicious email, which dropped into your inbox earlier this month, you would of found it to be chocked full of bright and sunny easy recipes! The email contained ten exciting recipes to brighten up your day. Let me share that May contained a lot of dull and rainy days here in Ontario - I heard on the news last week that we lost 57 hours of sunlight in May 2011. Finding some exciting bright recipes is exactly what we are in need of right about now.

Reading through the newsletter I felt inspired to brighten up my dinner plate with some wonderful food colour. I used to love stuffed peppers, yet, I haven't had or made them in years. One of the recipes is for Grilled Black Bean and Rice Stuffed Peppers. I always made mine with green peppers, yet, if you go ahead and mix it up with different coloured peppers your plate is already popping!

While I am waiting for Ontario peppers to come into my farmer's market, I thought I would have a little fun with one of my favourite desserts - angel food cake. I always have a Betty Crocker mix in my cupboard for quick, easy and delicious desserts. (It is very important to have an angel food mix in the cupboard with local berry season coming soon.) I noticed Rainbow Angel Cake in the newsletter and I was impressed. Using my neon food colouring and my kitchen helpers (Jillian and Matthew) we set out to make a Rainbow Angel Cake.

I think it turned out fantastic and it was so easy. We didn't top it with any icing or glaze, because my hubby isn't a real fan of icing, but he is a fan of angel food cake! I didn't want to exclude him from enjoying our Rainbow Angel Cake, by putting any on. This dessert would be a sure crowd pleaser at a neighbourhood barbeque or potluck.

Be sure to be on the email list from Life Made Delicious to receive easy recipes to your inbox once a month, just like these! Remember, I am a Life Made Delicious connector and I am passionate about sharing all the goodness you will find at the site. Trying a few of these vibrant recipes will for sure let the sun shine in and brighten your day!

Your cake looks wonderful. My grandmother used to make angel food cake, but it never has a rainbow effect.

Angel Food cake is my favorite as well! My Step Dad used to make a delicious icing for it, but unfortunately my Mom doesn't remember how he made it. I find it too sweet with regular icing so usually eat it without.

I'll add fruit & dream whip once in a while though ;)

Your rainbow cake looks delicious! I'm going to have to try this next time I make one.

I never thought of jazzing it up with colour. This would be a fun twist to maybe a birthday cake?
I could customize a cake using this idea for maybe a baby shower?
Thanks for the idea.
