All the colours...

Ok, so it might not have had all the colours of the rainbow, but our latest creation was still pretty colourful!!!

I'd been following the rainbow cake craze online for some time and like everything, decided to join the party a little late. After a few people at Mitch's work asking to see Mr Oliver again, my fellow baker and I decided to have a go at a rainbow cake with swiss buttercream icing (recipe from here) to take into the lab for morning tea. 

Because my cake tin was a little larger then suggested, we could only manage 5 layers but despite our fear that it was going to be a teeny cake (each layer was quite pancake like) it ended up being reasonably big. The recipe also suggested using gel colours because liquid wouldn't be vibrant enough, but with the cost of liquid food colouring here already being a mighty 4 euros per teeny bottle, we decided to make do with the colours I already had and see how it turned out - I think it was vibrant enough...

It went down a treat - despite being a massive sugar hit, it was pretty tasty!!! And of course (although it's a bit hard to tell with his serious face here!), Mr Oliver loved going in to work to see his Dadda :-)
