Easy and Delicious Rainbow Cake Recipe. | Hi everyone, it's been quite sometimes I didn't make cake and baking but last week I got a Instagram Review task that I have to bake a cake for it. So I took the challenge and bake a cake!

I always love the recipe from Martha Steward and this cake credit to her recipe and it is easy and delicious recipe to do. The result is also good, I love the texture and the taste that of cos will be depends on the ingredients that you used especially the butter and the vanilla essence itself too. 

But here in my recipe, I'm trying out the Mohler Flavor Paste that actually originated from Indonesia and just arrived in Malaysia market. Anyway I do love the taste of the flavor paste especially the Mango flavor, it really taste like Mango and the coloring is not really strong like the artificial color in the market.

Method :

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush six 9-inch-round cake pans (or as many 9-inch cake pans as you have, reusing them as necessary) with shortening/butter. Line bottom of each cake pan with parchment paper; brush again and set aside.

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar. Slowly add egg whites and mix until well combined. Add vanilla and mix until fully incorporated. Add flour mixture and milk in two alternating additions, beginning with the flour and ending with the milk. Mix until well combined.

Step 3

Divide batter evenly between six medium bowls. Add enough of each color of food coloring to each bowl, whisking, until desired shade is reached. Transfer each color to an individual cake pan. Transfer to oven and bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of each cake comes out clean, about 15 minutes (working in batches if necessary).

Step 4

Remove cakes from oven and transfer to a wire rack; let cool for 10 minutes. Invert cakes onto a wire rack; re-invert and let cool completely.

Step 5

Using a serrated knife, trim tops of cakes to make level. Place four strips of parchment paper around perimeter of a serving plate or lazy Susan. Place the purple layer on the cake plate. Spread a scant 1 cup buttercream filling over the first layer with a small offset spatula so it extends just beyond edges. Repeat process with blue, green, yellow, and orange layers.

Step 6

Place the remaining red layer on top, bottom-side up. Gently sweep away any loose crumbs with a pastry brush. Using an offset spatula, cover the top and sides with a thin layer of frosting (also use any of the excess frosting visible between the layers). Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.

Step 7

Using an offset spatula, cover cake again with remaining frosting.

FYI the whole family doesn't really like cream that much, so I reduced the used of cream in this cake hence it look are like that. But it already sweet and guess what, if you store it at the room temperature, on the second day the cake will taste more moist and delicious. My kids love this cake and I think I will do this recipe again with more or exact rainbow color in the future.

Do try this easy and delicious rainbow cake recipe gais and tell me your verdict. And do let me know if you have any other simple recipe that I can try next time.

Stay Safe and Stay Shine!
