Rainbow Cake


My first attempt to frost a cake. How was it? Ugly...yeah i know hahah...Its my latest hobby. My plan is to learn how to frost a cake beautifully. I love simple deco, but i still want to learn all the flowers and leaves and borders and cartoons etc...i didn't go to baking class, i just learnt from Chef Google and Chef Youtube. U know them? Of course u do. I did deco a few cakes after this one, i will show u the picture later okay.

So back to this cake. You already knew the cake right, its popular. In fact, i already had a few orders from my colleague. Alhamdulillah they didn't mind about the ugly deco hahahah. I used Martha Stewart recipe, coz thats the original recipe. Some people prefer to use sponge cake recipe, i choose to stick with the original, here the recipe...
