Rainbow Cake

Also known around here as "The Cake of Doom"...

I finally did it! I've been wanting to make one for ages, and my birthday was the perfect excuse. I love the gasp that I heard from everyone when I cut it open and produced the first slice.

It was quite easy to make, just a little time consuming to cook the cakes two at a time ( I only have two tins). Assembling wasn't too difficult, but my mum's kitchen floor is still covered in 100s and 1000s.

I used the recipe from over here; three times the cake mix, but only double icing. Even with thin slices most people shared with a friend; it's a huge cake. And do the crumb coat; I only did a thin one but it really makes a difference.

Happy Birthday Kate!
I have also been tempted to make a "Cake of Doom" as well. I even went and bought a couple more cake tins when I did the groceries, so now I have four.
Don't those 100s & 1000s travel?
I hope you had a great day and got lovely pressies.
