  2. 7) Pour batter evenly into 5 seperate bowls (i use a ladle and scoop into each bowl evenly) and add colour as desired to each bowl. In the picture i used cap full of pink, blue, yellow, green and purple food (mixture of red and blue) colouring.


  3. tmrc_emoticons.8) Pour 1 colour into one tin (i.e red batter) and then another bowl of coloured batter into the second tin (i.e yellow batter).

    9) Bake  these first 2 layers at 160 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Be careful not to over cook as you want a nice moist cake. Then do the same for the remaining 3 layers.

    10) Allow to cool for 10 minutes then take out of the tin. Then allow to cool completely on a wired rack before icing. 


  4. 11) Make cream cheese frosting then place one layer down and cover with cream cheese frosting, add the second layer ontop and cover with more icing until all 5 layers are complete. Then cover entire cake with a light layer of icing and place in freezer for 30-40 minutes to set.

    This cake tasted good, but the sponges were very moist still after 20mins in the oven, and 3 of the 5 split while assembling.
    Fortunately the icing hid that, but it's not a simple process based on this.
    Lovely lemon and coconut flavour though. My 2yr old wasn't fussed on it, but the rest of the family liked it.

    Hi Charlene

    I'm thinking of using this recipe. Did you use natural colours (without the nasties) as the coulurs of the cake don't seem to be very bright?

    I would like to use the natural colours but their packet says they are sensitive to high acid foods eg lemonade and there's a lot of lemon juice in your recipe so I just wanted to check. Thank you.
