So I mentioned in my previous post that my friend and I were going to make a rainbow cake for her daughter ‘Amelie’ who also goes under the status name of ‘My Goddaughter’. It was her first birthday and so, it needed to be especially epic.
And what can I say? Well we came, we baked, we pellet-gunned those bad boy Gummi Bears to the icing and we blew the socks off the party. There were “ooooooooooh”s and “woooooooooah”s and even the occasional “holy cow”* was featured.
*(The word “cow” may have actually been replaced with a swear word of the excrement variety)…
It is because of this that this post shall be a picture one, with few words. The awesomeness of our achievement speaks for itself.
We barely followed a recipe (coz we’re crazy and that’s just how we roll) and the link to such recipe is at the bottom of the page.
The colours are immense. Sunglasses please.
Suzy vs. Batter; A Test of Whips…
Adding the colourants to the batter; First batch to bake!
First set of sponges that I shall name “Spongii”…
Next batch of batter to face the colourants and oven for a Spongii Round 2;
Whipping and colouring the icing layers;
Icing done and spread between the layers? Ok, now it’s time to stack; Lets do this…
Look at those layers; those beautiful layers!!!
Icing on the cake? Get your pellet-gun (or fingers) and you go add those Gummi’s and candles;
Now, cut into it. Be prepared. Be proud. Yes, you are now SUPER cool;
