Rainbow Sprinkle Cake

If you follow me on instagram then you would have seen that I was working on a cake over the weekend.  It was my niece's 17th birthday yesterday and my sister-in-law asked me if I could make her a cake.  Of course I jumped at the chance.  Any excuse to bake and I am in!  She requested a rainbow cake and I decided to try out a sprinkle covered cake as well that I had been wanting to do for a while.  I was a little bit excited to finally get a chance to try it.

After covering the cake I decided it needed a little added touch so I made a quick fondant bow to go around it too.  I think it just makes it look a little bit more interesting.

Cutting this cake was the most nerve wracking thing I have ever done.  All I could think was if this cake doesn't look good inside I am going to be devastated.  But the collective gasp from my niece's friends as I cut out the first slice made it all worthwhile.  I love how this cake turned out! It has got to be one of my cake making highlights.

The other great thing about making a rainbow cake is how pretty the whole process looks.  Heres a few pics I shared on instagram that you may have missed.

I really hope I get another chance to make a rainbow cake because they are so much fun!  Or maybe next time I will do an ombre one.  That would be fun too!

    1. That is not a silly question at all! What I did was "glue" the cake to my cake board with a bit of icing. This allowed me to be able to tilt the cake board without the cake falling off. This way I could tilt the cake to the side and sprinkle the sides. I just took my time and went slow then went back over the spots that look a little bare. One tip would be to put the cake into a large container before doing the sprinkles otherwise you will end up with sprinkles all over the kitchen!
