Pinterest gives me no end of inspiration lately and one thing I keep seeing is rainbow cakes, so I decided to give it a go.
I made up enough cake mix for a normal victoria sponge type cake
Next I divided it into four
And added food colouring - pink, yellow, green and blue
I needed a lot as I just used normal food colouring and it made the mix very runny so I added some extra flour
It makes a serious amount of washing up!
Once coloured and mixed I poured the mixture into silicone sandwich tins and baked in the oven for around 20 minutes
After the cakes had come out of the oven some of the colours weren't as bright
I mixed up vanilla cream cheese frosting to sandwich the cake together and to go over the outside
And finished with some rainbow sprinkles
I love the reaction when people who've not seen this before watch the cake being cut
Normal food colouring doesn't work so well for this so I'm going to order come concentrated gel colourings for my next attempt
What do you think? Ever tried a rainbow cake?
