Rainbow cake

This afternoon Squidge and I made a rainbow cake.

I’ve been threatening to make this cake for a few weeks and today the stars and the moon aligned and we got cracking.  Squidge was ridiculously excited about mixing the food color gels into the batter.  I was ridiculously stressed about her mixing the food color gels.  They’re pretty potent and was afraid she was going to get them everywhere.  In the end she did get food coloring everywhere including the blue color all over her face.   Luckily it was  nothing a nice bath couldn’t take care of.

Squidge of course had a slice of rainbow cake and loved every last crumb.  It’s a pretty tall cake so I told Squidge she didn’t have to eat it all if she didn’t want to.  She looked at me and said “It’s is soo nummy. I love it. I love it. I love it. I love it.” Wal and I just laughed.  I told her I was happy she loved the cake and to eat it all up if she wanted to.

      The yellow cake is NEON bright! When I was buying the gel food colours they didn’t have yellow so I chose melon. Should of been labeled dayglo melon! Still it makes for a happy cake!

    Oh wow, this looks fantastic!

    I fear it’d be far too complicated for my limited baking skills though!

      It was a little fiddly but as long as you get everything organized before you start it’s not difficult. You should totally give it a try. I’m thinking about making a pink and purple striped one next.
