Prototype

So I’ve been looking at Rainbow cake’s but don’t have any celebrations coming up to make it worthwhile making one, they are quite big as they have seven layer’s! So I thought I’d try this one. Hmmm it’s ok, a bit dense, but not heavy and still very edible. I think I should call it a Happy Cake though, as when I cut a slice, because of the colours it put a big smile on my Sister’s face 🙂

Basically what I did was prepare a Victoria Sponge cake.

Seperate the sponge mixture (as evenly as possible) into 6 ramekins and added a different food colour to each dish, then mix it in well.

Empty the first ramekin into a greased and lined tin and let it spread a little, then emptied a second ramekin of mixture on top of that, then empty a third ramekin ontop again. Repeat this with the other three ramekins of mixture into a second prepared tin.

Bake for for 25 minutes at gas 4.

It’s covered in a basic buttercream.

I think the cake is a bit dense and didn’t rise very well because of the extra time it takes to seperate and colour the mixture.
