Tammy S. asked for a cake for her little girl who was turning one year old. She emailed me a picture that had 6 layers of cake, each a color of the rainbow, with fondant colored strips around the cake.
A simple white cake with Wilton food coloring to make the colors seemed simple enough. Baking the thin layers of cake was a lot harder than I thought it would be though! They did not want to raise evenly, even with bake even strips.
All 6 layers are brushed with simple syrup and stacked - ready for frosting and decorating!!
I used a simple technique to pipe strips around the outside of the cake... it was a lot harder putting it on the side of the cake than on the top surface of a cake! Frosting 'balls' on the top and sides and fun party writing finished the cake!
