A few months ago I sat Ethan and Eli down in front of Pinterest and worked out what cake they each wanted for their birthdays. Ethan wanted an excavator cake, which he's had, and Eli wanted a rainbow cake.
I was a tad excited at that idea. I had been wanting to make one for well over a year, since they first went viral.
Rich Butter Cake recipe x 2. Each batch was divided into 3. I used these colours from Baking Pleasures in Tulip Red, Electric Orange, Lemon Yellow, Electric Green, Electric Blue and Regal Purple.
I cheated a little and used Betty Crocker Vanilla Frosting. 3 tubs! One for the filling, part of one for the top and the rest for the sides. It's very sweet though.
I was a little worried about it sliding and ending up in a heap but it was fine.
Crispy m&m's for decoration. The cake stood about 18cm high.
Look at him! Totally chuffed with his cake. He didn't actually want me to cut it!
Here is Eli about to blow out his candles.
The cut cake. Love how the colours turned out!
Eli received lots of fabulous presents but one of his faves was this awesome rainbow book from Grandma.
Have you made a rainbow cake you? How'd you go?
