Love your cake design.
My granddaughter wants me to make this for her birthday . Can you tell me how big this cake is ( size and how many layers )
Hi thabks for your comment, it’s a 8 inch round cake with 3 layers inside, good luck caking!
The cake is just perfect! Where I can find the recipe? Thank you!
Hi there , thanks 🙂 you can just use any vanilla cake recipe and colour it with food colour for the rainbow layers. So make your main batter then divide it with a cup onto 5-6 bowls and colour each one. Then I bake them separately. My tip for a light and fluffy vanilla cake is to use real vanilla extract not essence or a mix of both, and cake flour not normal flour.
Hope that helps 😉
Thank you! It really helps 🙂 I’m only confused what is better to use below the “sand-i guess-biscuits” layer? What cream will hold the topper layer?
And one more – that frosting is it butter frosting cream? First time I tried it, it was so heavy, but yours looks pretty fluffy and not at all heavy. The idea is just great, my daughter love it so I must try 🙂
I used brown sugar for the sand but I had trouble with my butter cream sticking… It wouldn’t stick to the sugar… So if u do sugar just do the too of the cake and butter cream the sides.
So for a fluffy butter cream I use 250 grams butter at room temp, beat it for half a min until creamy.
Add 3 cups icing sugar but only add 1 cup at a time… So add 1 cup then beat well until creamy. Then add the rest 1 cup at a time. Then add 1T milk and 1t vanilla and beat about 30 secs – 1minute. If your butter cream is soon thick you need to add more milk 1 T at a time. And I use gel food colour not liquid as it will make your icing split!
Hope that is helpful and let me know how you get on! 🙂
Sorry ,, do the top of the cake with sugar (I wrote too of the cake by accident)
What are the little flowers and sea horses made from?
Hi there, The flowers are made of gumpaste/fondant which i used a flower cutter to cut, then i let them dry in a egg carton to shape them. The little animals are fondant and shaped with a mould i got off aliexpress.com. Thanks 🙂
