My Sunday Photo: Colorful Birthday



I did something different for my birthday, I asked hubby not to buy me a cake but decided to bake it myself. After all, I make cakes for other people, why not myself, besides, I wanted to experiment with piping buttercream roses on a cake and airbrushing. The result for the icing didn't turn out as I wanted but I was really happy about how the 'rainbow' sponge cake turned out when I had it all stacked, iced and then cut. Isn't it colorful? It makes me happy just looking at it.

  1. gorgeous! I made one for my daughter's bday with frosting between each cake layer. Perhaps a bit too much frosting, but oh was it delicious!

    1. Thanks. I used chocolate ganache so it wasn't too sweet, sort of to offset the frosting. It was quite yummy.

    1. Thanks. Its fairly easy to do, just a regular sponge cake but baked in separate pans after I colored the batter. Tedious but worth the effort. :)
