This rainbow jello has been a birthday tradition in my family for as long as I can remember. I remember begging my mom to make it for my birthday as a kid and I loved peeling off the layers one by one to eat. Each flavor actually consists of 2 different layers: a normal jello layer and a layer combined with yogurt. I've made it for a few of Lu's birthdays, including her most recent Tea Party birthday. She loves it as much as I did as a kid!
I haven't the slightest idea where the recipe originally came from, or how how it's changed from wherever my mom found the recipe. It's super easy though, despite the fact that it takes hours to actually make....(lots of down time waiting for each layer to solidify). Totally worth it though, and it's not so bad if you just split it out during the day.

You'll need 6 three ounce Jello packages. I used Raspberry, orange, grape, berry blue, lemon, and lime, but you could substitute other flavors. Just try to get a good group of different colors.
