Rainbow Cake

Birthday Cake Last week I made a very colourful Rainbow cake for my colleague. 

Rainbow Cake I made one batch of vanilla cake mixture and then split it into 5 bowls to colour; red, orange, green, blue and purple. I filled the layers and covered the cake with butter cream.

To get the lines of colour in the piping, I painted lines with food colouring in the inside of the piping bag before filling it with the butter cream.

The last time I attempted a rainbow cake was around 2 years ago and I used liquid food colouring. I was disappointed with how the colours turned out, too pale. This time round I used Wilton concentrated food colouring, a small drop makes such a difference in the colour without changing the consistency of the mixture.

Fortunately I was able to see the inside of the cake and eat a slice too, of course. The colours of the layers were vibrant and stood out so well, and it tasted delicious too!

I had a few spoonfuls left of each colour cake mixture so popped them in a few white paper cake cases and mixed some of the cake crumbs in with the butter cream to top them.

Thanks for reading and I hoped you enjoyed it!
