  1. Hi
    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 )
    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 😉

  2. 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 🙂

  3. 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! 🙂

    • 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 🙂
