Cherry and Me love baking together and thought it would be a super fantastic idea to make a birthday cake for her Rainbow Party! This week, we share how to make a Rainbow Surprise Cake!

Rainbow Surprise Cake cherryandme.comIt’s really much simpler than you think!

Rainbow Surprise Cake cherryandme.comBake 4 round cakes, any flavour or colour. You can use store bought cakes, packet mix or bake your own from scratch, as long as they’re all the same shape and size.

Rainbow Surprise Cake cherryandme.comRemove and discard the centre piece, or eat it!

Rainbow Surprise Cake cherryandme.comThe full cake (the one you didn’t cut) will be stacked on the bottom and the other 3 will be stacked on top to create a tunnel

Rainbow Surprise Cake cherryandme.comYou’ll need a round cake board to place your cake on. A good tip is to cover the cake board with two long pieces of baking paper, slightly over lapping. This way, you’re board will stay clean and the paper will be easy to remove by simply pulling the two rectangles of paper apart.

250g softened butter
3 cups icing sugar
2 table spoons milk
1 table spoon vanilla
Using electric mixers, beat the butter in a bowl until pale and gradually add the icing sugar, milk and vanilla until combine. You can even ad food colouring for extra fun!
