I did choose to make the cake, although if you short of time, patience, energy or decorating skills, Carnival will arrange one for you.
After being inspired by the rainbow cakes made by both Anna and Meredith, I decided to tackle the six layer cake. I ordered my gel colours online from Baking Pleasures. And then the marathon began. It was the first time I'd made this cake so it took me four hours. Although, it was worth every sweaty minute when I saw the excitement on the kids faces when they realised there was a rainbow inside. I chose to use sorbet colours for a more girly look.
After successfully making the six layer rainbow cake, I felt quite the Domestic Goddess. So I made these love heart biscuits as well using Nigella's recipe. Thanks Carnival for doing the rest!
About Spots and Stripes
When I began my third renovation, I swapped the corporate ladder for the rusty paint ladder and began my website and blog, Spots and Stripes, which chronicles the restoration of our 'Queenslander' in Brisbane. I'm also an interior editor helping clients to create a home which is not modern, nor traditional, rather it's interesting. For a home that is unlike any other, I can assist with the selection of lights, tiles, mirrors, wallpaper, paint, furniture and fabric.
