  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 :

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
