I can see a Rainbow!!!

I am a bit behind with blogging this lol, but a couple of weeks ago Lauren asked if we could make a rainbow cake....normally these are just ones where we make a deep sponge cake and throw in lots of sprinkles so they melt when the cake is cooked and then we also cream up and sprinklise the outside of the cake too......but after having seen some layered rainbow cakes online I thought we would try one like that instead......


well we were REALLY happy with the results! What do you think?

The cake itself stood at just over 6 inches tall in the end lol and had 8 eggs in the mix!

The colours were lovely and vibrant ( I am surprised we were not bouncing off the walls and ceiling lol). After sticking each of the layers together with buttercream I had to try and cover the outside of the cake and then hold it on its side whilst Lauren poured sprinkles all over!!!
Then she piped the top of the cake with swirls and decorated it......

fancy a slice? :)
