The Yummy Rainbow Cake

My sister-in-law and I made a rainbow cake a few days ago for my brother’s birthday (we made him run out and get some of the ingredients for us, and he never even realised until he saw the cake!) – and he loved it.

Surprisingly, it isn’t that difficult to make this cake, it’s like baking a normal one but takes a little longer because of the layers. We used this BBC recipe to make the cake, although we also took inspiration from this beautiful cake by Hummingbirds too.

This is the end result (which we took nibbly bites out of it at midnight on my brother’s birthday, after we added some sparkly candles.)

This is how we made it, which I’ve made into nice easy steps for you if you decide to pick my wisdom over the BBC recipe. Well, a girl can hope, anyway.

    1. We just used normal food colouring, although food colour gel gives a much more intense colour (something I’m going to try next time!). We just used normal low-fat cream cheese for the butter-cream icing, but you can also use non-salted butter as well (recommended by Hummingbird Bakery!)
      Thanks for visiting, glad you like the cake!
