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.
