  Vinn Kee’s 16th : Birthday Surprise !!
so in my previous post , i showed you guys the process of baking a rainbow cake :D
and who is it for , you may wonder ? well , it’s for my lovely pretty pretty friend Vinn Kee !!
her birthday was really close to our final exams so we couldn’t really celebrate for her but since i have a passion for baking and i always find time for baking , i decided to bake her a cake and surprise her !
her birthday is actually on the 19th of September , but since i baked the cake on the 17th and didn’t want it to go stale , i brought it to school the next day , which was 18th :D

1
preparing my beloved rainbow cake in the morning ! as you can see , i had to tear off the lid of the box cos my cake was too tall HAHAHAH .

when i arrived in school i was shocked cos i didn’t expect the birthday girl to be in school so early D: obviously i couldn’t be seen with the cake right !! hahah so with the help of Paggie and Yee Lyn , we secretly brought the cake to the canteen to keep in the fridge .
during break the rest of the girls distracted Vinn Kee and kept her in class whilst me , Vic and Paggie went to get the cake .
2 3
lighting the cake before going in !! thanks to Paggie who brought the candles , Happy Birthday sign and cake knife :p

4
the baker and the cake … and because catwang is too mainstream hahaha .

and then we went in !!

video is recorded by Paggie !! my voice (if you can recognize) sounded soooo gay cos i was having a terrible sore throat :(( the super high-pitched voice is Victoria , the one yelling “NOOOO” is Paggie cos the wind from the fan was extinguishing the candles and she was desperately trying to save them ahhaha , and the one saying “DON’T CUT YET !” is Jasmine :p

Vinn Kee cutting the cake after she blew the candles !!

one of me and her ! <3

as i mentioned before my cake was quite tall so it was kinda hard to cut through it D:

Cutter Chiang giving cake-cutting a go ! HAHAHAH

anyway Jasmine the pro cake-cutter finally did us all a favour ! phew !
10
12 11
BEHOLD … MY PRECIOUS . so so happy with the results and how the colours turned out <3 <3 and i was so worried that it wouldn’t taste good but everyone loved it and we finished off almost the whole cake in school itself ! :9

13
happy birthday again darling !

14
the FAB girls , minus Melati cos she came to school late :(
15
FAB girls + the Wordsworth trio ! Syazwana , Alyssa and Jasmine :D

so glad that our surprise plan worked and Vinn Kee was happy with the cake !! :D every girl’s 16th should be special and i’m glad Vinn Kee’s one was too :p

  Baking a Rainbow Cake !
hey guys , this is yet another scheduled post :p
few weeks ago after i came back from Penang , i decided to bake again ! this time , it was for my friend , Vinn Kee’s birthday :) and this time i decided to bake a whole cake instead of my usual cupcakes . it was my first time baking a full cake so i didn’t know what to expect and kept my fingers crossed the whole time .
0
but i was so happy cos the outcome was perfect ! yay ! :))

so here i am , to share the process of baking a rainbow cake .
here’s the recipe i followed , except i added a tad bit more milk and also added in vanilla essence : http://www.thepinkwhisk.co.uk/2011/09/how-to-make-a-rainbow-cake.html 

DSC_3493-vert
my ingredients + my trusty baking tools !! super love my electronic mixer and electronic scale ahahahah , they’re my best friends :p

DSC_3502
oh yeah and also my pretty pretty food colouring ! they cost a hole in a pocket despite their pretty outlook , one small bottle was RM5.50 </3


DSC_3495-vert
step one is creaming the butter and sugar together !!

DSC_3497
after adding in the eggs and flour …

DSC_3498
adding in the remaining flour + vanilla essence !

DSC_3499
and the batter is done !! super easy right ? :p

DSC_3500-vert
the next step is to separate the batter into 6 different bowls , since i was doing 6 layers .

now here’s the fun part … colouring the batter !
DSC_3503-vert
it was super duper fun squeezing out the food colouring and then mixing it and watching the plain-coloured cake batter come to live in vibrant colours ! :))

did that to all the batters !
DSC_3505-tile
GAHHH SO PRETTY !! <3 <3

DSC_3508
then add them to the cake pans and off to the oven ! i baked them two layers at a time for 19 mins and they were perfect !

DSC_3514-vert
here are the first two layers : red and orange !

DSC_3515
and plop out of the cake pan ! the colours are sooo gorgeous <3 anyway it took some skill to get the cake out of the cake pan because they were so fragile DD:

DSC_3516
so for the next two layers , i decided to line the cake pans with baking sheets . not a good idea though …

DSC_3523
my turquoise and yellow layer came out with a weird shape :(( so for the remaining 2 layers i didn’t use the baking sheets anymore hahaha

DSC_3507-vert
here’s a collage of the beautiful cake batter in their pans before i sent them to the oven ! :DD

DSC_3519DSC_3529
and here’s the pink layer before and after , my absolute fav :p

so after all the layers are done , its time to trim the layers ! the recipe said to leave it in the fridge for a few hours before trimming it , but who cares ? haha
DSC_3521
trimming !

DSC_3520DSC_3522
before and after trimming , see the difference ? :D

after trimming all the layers , it was time to arrange the cakes in order !!!! here i made a GIF :

DSC_3539
YAYYYYY ALMOST DONE !

DSC_3543-vert
made the buttercream frosting after that . the recipe gave instructions for cream cheese frosting but i had no cream cheese so i made buttercream ahahah . also i didn’t measure the amount of ingredients cos i was so lazy , i YOLO-ed and followed my instincts and surprisingly my buttercream turned out okay ! :D

DSC_3540
adding the frosting between the layers …

DSC_3541
done !! really displeased about my yellow and turquoise layer though :(((

DSC_3542
people probably love frosting cakes , but at this point i was so tired and it was just so troublesome frosting the entire cake :(

DSC_3547-horz
AND FINALLY I WAS DONE !!! HALLELUJAH .

THEN .. THE MOST UNEXPECTED THING HAPPENED . my cake stand was at the edge of the table and i was busy adding the remaining frosting to the cake and then .. AND THEN !!!!
CAKE FELL
UGH I SWEAR MAN I HAVE THE MOST BULLSHIT LIFE IN THE WORLD .
but anyway thankfully it was just a chair and not the floor so it was savable , phew !

after much chaos in the cake-falling event ,
DSC_3550
i added rainbow sprinkles and I AM DONE . MISSION ACCOMPLISHED .

DSC_3552 DSC_3551
super satisfied with the outcome !! :D i was so eager to see the inside of the cake but obviously i couldn’t :(

DSC_3554
and boxed the cake !!

in total , this cake took 6 hours to prepare , including the mishaps and cleaning up , but all was well since i had my self-proclaimed holiday :D
next post will be the cake-cutting in lieu with Vinn Kee’s birthday !! stay tuned ! :D
