Nothing can beat the colors of this awesome and wonderful Rainbow Cake 🙂
Just looking at this picture of the rainbow cake reminds me of the wondrous mix of rain and sunshine in the sky!
Rainbow cakes are happy cakes, just like rainbows… Whats not to love in them, the colors… just look how pretty it looks.
Some weeks ago, Artsy Craftsy Mom asked me for a rainbow cake recipe on FB, I suggested her some links as she told me how her daughter wanted to bake and decorate the rainbow cake as a homecoming party gift after the summer vacation break. Because the cake was so special to Little P, Shruti was a little hesitant to bake it all by herself and I initially offered to help her by giving her batter that she can bake at home, the idea went back and forth and we finally decided that I will bake the cake for her, send her the frosting and she will do the decorations with Little P at home.
I loved baking this cake! I have baked rainbow cupcakes before and I had baked rainbow cake which was a cake with seven layers each with different colors, but this is the first time I was baking rainbow cake with all the colors in one cake and I so enjoyed the pouring, part of me was behaving like a child, pouring a spoonful of a different color each time… what joy 🙂
And then look at the beautiful decorations which Little P did on it! Sigh, the gems, the sprinkles on the light blue frosting…Doesn’t this look like the rainbow, really? Reminded me of the fruit cake with bits of tutti frooti my mom used to bake when I was a kid! These are the times I really am glad I have great friends and have the love for baking! This cake made everyone happy, regardless of age? That is all we want on birthdays and in parties, right?
