How to make a rainbow cake

Created by: :3kitty:3

Step: 1: This is the Equipment you will need Mixer (Standing or hand) Spoons/spatulas-a-plenty Mixing bowl (plus 5 little ones) Sandwich tins (this recipe is for a 6 layer cake not trimmed) Cake splitter Cake scraper (for smooth buttercream) Buttercream Chosen decoration (I used millions of sprinkles) Ingredients 285g Unsalted butter 285g Caster Sugar 255g Self raising flour 100g Plain flour 4 Eggs 2 tsp Vanilla extract Sugarflair gel colours. I used Grape Violet, Navy, Egg Yellow, Pink and Party Green

Step: 2: Turn your oven to 160C and grease all of your sandwich tins. Mix all of your ingredients together (apart from the gel colours) until the mixture is free of lumps, lovely and smooth. Be careful not to overmix as this will affect how much your cakes rise.

Step: 3: Split your mixture between 5 small bowls (roughly 225g per bowl) and colour each a different one of your colours. Spoon into your cake tins and bake each one for roughly 20 minutes. Times and temperatures may vary so cook cakes accordingly and check they are baked by inserting a skewer into the centre, if it comes out clean your cake is done!

Step: 4: Cool each cake. Use the splitter to make your cakes level and all roughly the same height. You can use a bread knife for this bit but it may make your cake a bit on the wonky side! Choose your colour pattern and stack your cakes, adding a generous layer of buttercream between each one.

Step: 5: Now apply buttercream all over your cake, making it perfectly smooth with your scraper.

Step: 6: Now apply decoration, we have always got lots of sprinkles lying around at BDB HQ so we treated ours to a complete coating!

Step: 7: Now all that you have left to do is find an audience and dramatically cut your cake, then wait for the ooohs and aaaahs .... Hope you enjoyed it!
