My wife and myself spent a good part of yesterday baking and decorating a rainbow cake to take to our local toddler group as it was our daughters second birthday on Tuesday.
The result is below. I felt it turned out pretty well although the icing wasn’t that even.
This is pretty straight forward to make although we struggled with the decoration.
The layers are a basic victoria sponge recipe which is split into six and food colouring is added before it is put in the oven. There’s a layer of buttercream frosting between each layer and then just a store bought icing was rolled out and put on the tops and sides. This was the most difficult part as it was very difficult to get smooth. However we used some sash to go round the cake to hide most of the imperfections.
The cake seemed to go down a treat at the toddler group , although are daughter looked a bit bemused when it was brought out and didn’t want to blow out the candles. All in all I’d say it was a big success though.
