Instructions For Rainbow Tier Cake

I know you’re wondering, “What does this have to do with food?” Well, I’m glad you asked. It turns out that the tiers of a rainbow cake are perfect for stacking up different flavors of cupcakes! You can make as many or few layers as you want and it’s super easy to swap out colors if your favorite flavor is not available in the store. For example, if you prefer chocolate over vanilla then just use cocoa powder instead of white sugar when making the batter.

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius (fan assisted, 180 degrees Celsius without the fan). Prepare your 6′′ cake pans by lining them with parchment paper.

In a mixing dish, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time, beginning on low and gradually increasing the speed as each egg is added. Mix in the vanilla extract before adding the flour and baking powder.

Divide the cake batter evenly among five bowls. Fill each dish with a different colour of gel food colouring.

Bake for 10-15 minutes in the oven after pouring each bowl of coloured cake mix into your prepared pans. When a cocktail stick comes out clean, they’re done.

Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for a few minutes before transferring them out onto a wire rack to cool fully.

Once the cakes have cooled fully, level them if necessary to make them stack more evenly. You want to remove as little cake as possible to make the cake flat.

Combine the butter and icing sugar in a mixing bowl and beat until light and creamy. Pour in enough milk to make a smooth, spreadable texture.

Place one of the blue layers on your cake board first, followed by a liberal amount of buttercream. Rep with the last 5 layers.

It’s time to apply the crumb coat once all of the layers have been built. Apply a thin layer of buttercream to the whole cake to achieve this. It doesn’t have to be beautiful at this point. After applying your crumb coat, chill it for at least 30 minutes to let it to solidify somewhat.

Apply the final layer of buttercream after the crumb coat has become firm to the touch. Make sure to use a lot of buttercream and take your time with it!

You are free to customise the cake anyway you like. On the exterior, I decided to keep it simple and sewed some bunting to hang in the top.
