Recipe's preparation

    CAKE BATTER:
  1.  

    1) Add butter and sugar and mix 30 sec/ sp 5. Stop and scrape down the sides of the jug

    2) With blades rotating on speed 4, add the 4 eggs one at a time until mixed slightly (roughly 10 seconds)

    3) Add flours, milk and vanilla extract and mix 1 min / speed 6

     

    NOTE:

    - This makes 6 thin layers

    - To make 12 thin layers as in picture I did 2 batches of the cake mix.

    - Or you can make 3 thicker layers with this recipe or do 2 batches and do 6 thicker layers

    - I love the look of thin layers though as in picture

     

  2. TO MAKE LAYERS:

    1) Set oven to 180 degrees and then set out 6 bowls 

    2) Dish out the batter EVENLY into each bowl - the best way is to put a tablespoon in each bowl at a time until the batter is finished. It is very important to seperate batter evenly so you have the same sized layers in your cake.

    3) Add 1/2-1 cap full of food colouring to each bowl using a seperate spoon per colour to mix. I normally do purple (using red and blue), blue, green, yellow, pink, red.

     

  3. 1. In a round springform tin or round silicon tin, spray with cooking spray then spread one coloured mixture evenly and thinly using a spoon to do so (see picture)

    2. Using the same sized tins do the same with each of the other colours. I only had  2 of the same sized tins and therefore had to spread and bake 2 colours at a time.

    3. Place tins into oven and bake for 12-15 minutes (cooking time depends on thickness of layers)

    4. Set layers aside to cool completely.

  4. 1. Once layers are cooled, trim rounded tops of cake layers to level if needed

    2. On a serving plate, place red cake layer and spread with frosting,  Repeat with pink, yellow, green, blue and purple. Repeat if doing double batch and 12 layers as in photo.

    3. Spread light coat of frosting on the top and sides of the cake to seal in crumbs, then cover with a thick coating of remaining cream cheese icing.

    4. Then decorate as desired. In main picture i used 100s & 1000s to decorate sides of the cake and edible pearls on the top of cake.

     

    NOTE: if doing a tall cake like this one with 12 layers you will have to do 2 batches of the cream cheese frosting to cover entire cake.

  5. Cream cheese icing
  6. 1) Place sugar into the bowl and mill for 15 sec/ speed 10

    2) Add all remaining ingredients into bowl and mix 30-40 sec/ speed 5

  • Simple instructions     Easy

    Simple instructions  tmrc_emoticons.;)

     

     Easy instructions and a good guide for first time rainbow cake makers. I did only 4 layers using an 18cm round tin ( same one I use for the steamed White chocolate cheesecake from EDC) and it made a nice sized cake for my daughters 1st birthday. And I cheated and used Betty Crocker strawberry icing for in between the layers and the outside. Also I found I didn't need to trim off any of the raised tops of the cakes because they flattened out and were perfect, next time I might be a bit sneaky and try adding white chocolate to the mix. Thank you for the recipe.

  • This is an amazing tasting

    Submitted by obiii on 4. May 2014 - 18:23.

    This is an amazing tasting cake! Its really dense and fudgy like a white mud. I doubled the recipe and baked 6 layers in a 30cm pan.

    This icing quantity is HEAPS, for my doubled cake I made 1 1/2 quantity- the first quantity was enough to fill the cake layers and for a base layer over the cake to bind crumbs and fill gaps (I then refrigerated it before final coating of other half quantity)

    The entire cake was HUGE, easily served 30.
