Rainbow Chip vs. Funfetti
Why is Betty Crocker's Party Rainbow Chip cake so delicious? I'm not sure, but for some reason, this is one treat that I have a tough time resisting (especially when the cake is frosted with the party rainbow chip frosting). This is so silly too because I rarely buy cake or brownie mixes. I like to make things from scratch and I'm convinced that you should be able to make a cake as good from scratch (and BETTER) than a cake mix. Anyway, several months ago, I just craved this cake for some reason. I thought it was the same thing as Pilsbury's Funfetti cake mix and so I kept looking in the Pilsbury section for the Rainbow Chip cake and frosting (made by Betty Crocker) but I couldn't find the frosting with the right kind of sprinkles in it (because I was only searching in the Pilsbury section). The Rainbow Chip frosting already has the round, colored sprinkles in the frosting while the Pilsbury Funfetti frosting has the sprinkles in a clear, plastic container on top of the frosting container. After coming to the conclusion that the cake mix I was looking for did not exist anymore, I discussed my dilemma with a friend who corrected my wayward thinking that Rainbow Chip was made by Pilsbury. I have since happily been restored to the Rainbow Chip cake mix and have ceased purchasing the Pilsbury Funfetti cake mix...because really, Rainbow Chip is better.
