Perfect for a colourful addition to any high tea or party!

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 40-45 minutes
Serves: 12

Ingredients
Rainbow cake
1 packet of golden buttercake cake mix for a 20 cm x 10 cm pan
(For a 30 cm x 20cm pan, use 2 packets of cake mix)
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter or margarine depending on the packet instructions
Food colouring

Buttercream frosting
125g butter
1 ½ cups icing sugar
1 tablespoon milk

Method



  • Use an electric mixer to make the buttercake and ingredients (butter, milk, egg) according to the packet instructions.



  • Divide the batter into 6 smaller bowls.

  • Add food colouring and mix to make batter of different colours.



  • Using two colours, spread rows of batter across a 20 x 10 cm baking pan. This will make the first layer of colours! Purple and green are at the bottom here.

  • Choose another two colours, and spread another layer of rows over the top. I used blue and yellow for the middle layer.



  • Use the final two colours to make the final layer of coloured batter. Orange and red will be the top here!



  • Bake according to packet instructions, or until lightly golden and a skewer comes out clean when stuck in to test the cake.

  • Once cooked, set the cake aside to cool for about 10 minutes. Remove the cake from its tray. Let it cool completely



  • Make the buttercream frosting - combine butter, icing sugar, and a bit of milk. Mix with an electric mixer until the frosting is creamy and smooth.

  • Once the cake has cooled completely, pipe frosting dollops on top.



  • Carefully chop up the cake into cubes.



  • Serve. Or keep the rainbow cubes in an airtight container in the fridge for later (up to 3 days).
