Rainbow cake!

These are the rainbow cakes I made for my best friend’s sister (Ria Manwell) a while back!

Makes 12

Ingredients: Cakes

  • 2 eggs
  • 130g self-raising flour
  • 130g butter/ stork
  • 130g sugar
  • 3 food colourings of your choice (I chose blue, green and pink)
  • 100g butter (@ room temperature)
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 1/2 a tsp vanilla essence
  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 5/ 190 °C/ 375 °C
  2. Mix the butter/ stork & sugar together then add the eggs and sift in the flour. Stir together until smooth.
  3. Separate mixture into 3 bowls evenly, pour 1 colour in each bowl and mix until you are happy with the colour (note: the colours go lighter after you have cooked them)
  4. Prepare your cupcake tray and when finished choose one colour (blue) and separate it evenly into all the cases; then choose another colour (green) and do the same on top of the first colour (blue); now do the same with the final colour.
  5. Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes
  6. Whilst the cakes are in the oven make the butter icing
  7. Slice the butter into cubes and mix with the icing sugar.
  8. Add the vanilla essence and (some hot water if necessary)
  9. Wait…
  10. Take the cakes out of the oven and place them on a cooling rack.
  11. When cool spread the butter icing on the top and your done lovely little rainbow cakes! ^_^
