For this cake the pressure really was on.  This was for my sister’s 18th birthday and also a surprise.  She loves rainbow cake so this was a must and I wanted to see the surprise element when she cut into the cake so rainbow cake it was.

All six layers of the cake were vanilla sponge and coloured with Wilton gel colours. I then covered the cake with white fondant icing which was very stressful due to the height of the cake. We got there eventually though and added some pink stripes and flowers.  Each layer had a vanilla buttercream between them.  Seeing her face when we gave her the cake made all the hard work worth it and seeing her face when she cut into the cake was a brilliant moment. Mission accomplished.
