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 .
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
my ingredients + my trusty baking tools !! super love my electronic mixer and electronic scale ahahahah , they’re my best friends :p
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
after adding in the eggs and flour …
now here’s the fun part … colouring the batter !
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 !
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 !
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:
so for the next two layers , i decided to line the cake pans with baking sheets . not a good idea though …
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
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
after trimming all the layers , it was time to arrange the cakes in order !!!! here i made a GIF :
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
people probably love frosting cakes , but at this point i was so tired and it was just so troublesome frosting the entire cake :(
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 !!!!
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 ,
super satisfied with the outcome !! :D i was so eager to see the inside of the cake but obviously i couldn’t :(
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
