A Leeds Rainbow Cake

Hi everyone!

This weekend I went to Leeds to visit my sister at uni. I had an amazing time and one of the things we decided to do was to cook a rainbow cake!

We've both wanted to make one of these for a long time, and we were planning on making it pink, green, yellow and blue, but unfortunatley there were no yellow or pink food colourings when we went to buy the ingredients, so we went for orange instead and just decided to have a go and see what happened.

When we cooked the first layer we were a bit shocked at how short it was because it looked like a pancake! But luckily when we piled all the layers on it resembled normal cake size. Although it maybe doesn't look like a normal rainbow cake it sure did taste amazing!

For this cake we just used a normal plain cake recipe and added food colouring. We also put jam to stick the layers together and used Betty Crocker icing to put over the top. If you are looking for a recipe to follow then here is one I think looks very similar to the one we made.

We had so much fun making this cake so I would definitely recommend it if you have loads of time because it took ages!

I hope you like the pictures!



P.S. I would definitely recommend putting a good amount of food colouring in because we didn't put that much orange in for the first layer which is why is looks quite yellowy!
