Flour Shop’s cakes have been a staple of the New York dessert scene since gaining popularity on social media in 2017.
In 2019, Flour Shop and Williams Sonoma teamed up on a collection of cake kits so that anyone can bake a beautiful and delicious Rainbow Explosion Cake at home. The bright and colorful cake explodes with sprinkles when it’s cut to serve, adding fun and whimsy to any birthday or graduation celebration!
Williams Sonoma sells a few versions of the cake kit. The Flour Shop Rainbow Explosion Cake Kit, at $59.95, includes just the ingredients: cake mix, food coloring gels, frosting mix, and sprinkles. The Flour Shop Basics Cake Set, at $139.95, comes with everything in the Cake Kit, plus three GoldTouch 6″ cake pans and a copy of Flour Shop founder Amirah Kassem’s cookbook “The Power of Sprinkles.” The Ultimate Cake Set, at $289.95, includes everything in the Basics Cake Set, plus three more cake pans (for a total of six), a cake stand, four mini Flour Shop spatulas, and four mini Flour Shop spoonulas.
