Rainbow Cake

Inspired by this (yes, Pinterest again), I decided to make a rainbow cake for Mr Pippa's birthday.

This was my first and only attempt. No pressure, then.

Knowing that it would look quite plain on the outside, I added some colourful chocolates (which, by the way, look great on the day but not so great the next day, when they've gone a bit damp and the colour goes a bit funny).

You may or may not be interested to know (I'm telling you whether you're interested or not so let's just pretend that you are) that this cake was a surprise for Mr Pippa. Seeing the cake, above, achieved a smile and a "cool".

Seeing a slice taken out achieved gasps and "Wow". 

It's a party within a cake.


I'll share in the next post how I did it.


  1. Well done Mrs Pippa, this cake would emit so many oohhs & aaahs in my house! I'm thinking it would make a lovely Easter cake topped with miniature chocolate eggs still wrapped in colourful foil. Love your blog!

  2. WOW. that is some awesome cake. i've had a couple friends do this too... totally impressed. i might see if i can find a friend who will make one for me one day- maybe for my 30th? haha. love it! nice work you!

  3. And mr Pippa didn't need any sleep for the rest of the week :)
    Very funky cake though :)

  4. Oh WOW! I'm loving the cake!!! can't wait for the recipe think i may have to give this one a go :D

  5. You know my reaction :) AMAZING! and soooo very "you guys" xx

  6. Ooh good work! I've made two rainbow cakes (also inspired by the same one you found on pinterest, it's from One Charming Party) but haven't been that happy with either of them. Yours looks much better! X

  7. Oh my goodness, it's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen!!!! Ok, that's hyperbole, but it's really, really, really, really pretty :)
