If you follow me on instagram then you would have seen that I was working on a cake over the weekend. It was my niece's 17th birthday yesterday and my sister-in-law asked me if I could make her a cake. Of course I jumped at the chance. Any excuse to bake and I am in! She requested a rainbow cake and I decided to try out a sprinkle covered cake as well that I had been wanting to do for a while. I was a little bit excited to finally get a chance to try it.
After covering the cake I decided it needed a little added touch so I made a quick fondant bow to go around it too. I think it just makes it look a little bit more interesting.
Cutting this cake was the most nerve wracking thing I have ever done. All I could think was if this cake doesn't look good inside I am going to be devastated. But the collective gasp from my niece's friends as I cut out the first slice made it all worthwhile. I love how this cake turned out! It has got to be one of my cake making highlights.
The other great thing about making a rainbow cake is how pretty the whole process looks. Heres a few pics I shared on instagram that you may have missed.
I really hope I get another chance to make a rainbow cake because they are so much fun! Or maybe next time I will do an ombre one. That would be fun too!
