My daughters birthday is on thursday, i wanted tosurprise her with a very colorful cake. She loves rainbow btw. After seraching the web, ive come across 2 kinds of rainbowcake. From scracth and boxed one, which one tastes better? And i also read that it is hard to make. Can somebody pls share their tips in making my daughters cake a pleasureable one
Thanks in advance
And if you would like to share your tried and tested recipe, i will really appreciate it
It's OK to use a white cake mix from a box. You have to make sure you use only egg whites for the blue and purple batter. So you need 2 cake mixes. Easiest to bake 6 thin layers because then colours are nice and separate. OK to use foil pans.
Mix one box with only 4 egg whites plus oil water as on box. Divide into 3 and add blue, purple, green colours. I use Americolor brand gel colour because bottles are small and cheap.
Mix other box with 1 whole egg and yolks left from #1, oil and water as on box, divide into 3 and add red, orange and yellow food colour.
Stack with white icing of your choice.
My friend made this one for her daughter. So delicious.!! I saved the recipe, but haven,t make it myself. Making it from scratch would taste so much better than box. hth Also, look how vibrant the colors are. So beautiful
Check out my photos...of a rainbow cake. I would use the WASC with AMericolor dye
Thank you so much ladies... You save my time in browsing the net
You can use any white/vanilla cake recipe. I made one, and it was actually a snickerdoodle (cinnamon) cake recipe, because it was for my niece's birthday and her mother wanted that flavour. I just used a little less cinnamon than the recipe called for and while the colors weren't quite as vibrant as other rainbow cakes, it still came out looking great!
PinkLotus, your layers are beautiful!!!
It looked great!!
