Rainbow Cake with Rose Buttercream

After some discussion with my colleagues, i plan to do the rainbow cake for them as their birthday cake..it was a challenge to me and i called this my big project...never thought that i would come out with such a cake...I'm glad that i did it..and i should thanks all for giving me opinions, suggestions and guidance.. LOVE you all to the max!!

The cake portion, i repeat the following recipe for 3 rounds in order for me to have the 6 layers as my oven can only take 2 layers at one time.

  • 2 eggs
  • 150gm sponge mix
  • 30gm water
  • 1 tsp coffee emulco (one round with tea)
  • 60gm oil

  1. Beat eggs till fluffy.
  2. Add in water and emulco.
  3. Pour in sponge mix.
  4. Finally stir in oil.
  5. Divide to 2 batter, add in colouring.
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 180'C for 25 mins.
  7. Leave on wire rack to cool completely.
The decoration part : I did the buttercream a day earlier due to time constraint. I used the Wilton 1M tip to pipe the roses. Glad that i bought it. The roses are nice.

For Buttercream:
350 gm   Butter
150 gm   Cream Margarine


180 gm   Icing Sugar

Beat (A) until smooth.

Add in (B), cream till light and fluffy.
Fill up piping bag and start decorating.
