Who paints the rainbow on the sky?

My own sweet artwork recipe

I've always wondered who paints the rainbow on the sky. Where do so many colours come from? And why does it appear only when it's wet – is it painted with watercolours? The owl says that it's painted by the sun – but that doesn't sound right to me…

When it comes to it, maybe even I could do it. With my food supplies I can mix so many colours that I can paint basically anything. For now I train my artistic skills on my semolina pudding – its surface is almost as smooth and clean as a canvas!

Let's prepare some colourful paint and canvas together!

My own sweet artwork recipe

What I need

Semolina pudding:

½ l milk
4 tbsp semolina
2 tbsp sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp butter


RED: raspberries or strawberries
PURPLE: blueberries or blackberries
ORANGE: mango
BROWN: chocolate


cooking pot
cooking spoon


1) I mix semolina with milk, salt and sugar in a pot. I let it rest for about 30-60 minutes.
2) I stir it and bring it to the boil. I cook it for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. In the end I add butter.
3) I pour the pudding into plates. These are my canvases.


1) Before the pudding sets and becomes a smooth canvas, I mix my paint!
2) How do I prepare it? I put the fruit (sorted by color) into tiny baking dishes, smash it a little with a fork and put it into the oven for about 5 minutes (or microwave it for about 1 minute).
3) I use the juice as a paint.
