It was my brother’s birthday recently so his wife and my sister decided to make him a cake, but not just any cake; a rainbow cake. (and I did my bit of course – babysitting!). They took inspiration from the Hummingbord rainbow cake which looks amazing.
First they made the batter like normal (sorry not a great photo)
Then they mixed the batter with various colours of food colouring, adding more or less depending on how rich they wanted the colours to come out
Then putting them in the baking tins and spreading the batter evenly
Once cooked leave them to cool
Then the fun part-layering the different colours of the cake with icing or in this case low-fat cream cheese for the butter-cream icing holding it all together
Then just cover the whole cake in the icing and decorate as you like. All that is left is to chill and serve.
The cake is fairly easy to make, looks great and tastes delicious. For the recipe see here and you can see my sister’s write up of her baking skills here
Looks good enough to eat.
