Hello! A while ago I wanted to try out making a rainbow cake. It seemed a lot easier then making rainbow cupcakes , and it was. To start out I first made my vanilla cake batter.
I then separated the cake batter into 6 different bowls. In each bowl add a different food coloring, so you have all the colors from the rainbow.
Then bake all the different color batters in different cake pans.
I covered my cakes with plastic wrap and froze them. It is much easier to frost cakes when they have been frozen for a day or few hours.
Put all the cakes in color order before you start to frost. Just to give you an idea of how it will look, and so you frost them in proper order.
This is the cake after it is frosted…..
…and this is how a slice of the cake looks =]
Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long. I’ve been really busy with the gazillion things that were happening during the summer, and school starting up again, so I haven’t had time to post stuff. Anyway, I experimented with cupcakes for the first time, and got my own recipe =] So all I did was make the vanilla cake batter and then….
So after I made the cake batter I added green food coloring into it (so it looks minty X-)), and then I added a whole lot of crushed York chocolate.
That wasn’t even half of the York wrappers =]
Then mix it all together and bake.
For the frosting I just made regular butter cream with smooshed York in it, so the York was blended together with all the other ingredients in the frosting.
So, this was the first time I painted on a cake. I used edible cake paint. It’s a two tier vanilla cake, with buttercream filling, and covered with fondant.
I mixed a little too much water with the colors, so it got a little drippy.
So this was my first time properly making cupcake pops. The only difference from cake pops, is that they are in the shape of cupcakes. To get the shape you roll your cake ball into an oval shape. Then take a flower cookie cutter, and put half of the cake ball into it. Then make a dome shape on the part that is sticking out.
Then once you slide it out of the cookie cutter it should have a cupcake looking shape. It took me some time to get the hang of it.
So after you have your shape, melt the candy melt color you will use for the bottom of the cupcake. Take the cupcake and dip the bottom part of it into the chocolate. Then take it out and stick a lollipop stick in half way, put it upside down and let the chocolate harden.
Once it has hardened, melt the other color candy melt. Then dip the top part of the cupcake into the candy melts.
Then add some sprinkles and an M&M in the middle before the chocolate hardens, and your done!
I made these for a friends birthday. You can wrap each cupcake pop in a lollipop wrap and tie it with a ribbon.
