I’m sticking with my challenge so far – two cakes in three days! I’m on a roll! And look how bright that cake is! It’s lovely!
So, rainbow Cake is apparently from Fiji – who knew? But that could maybe have something to do with the fact that there are no eggs in this cake. None at all! Unfortunately, the cake itself was a bit tasteless (and chewy?) and I’m not sure if I did something wrong, or if it was a result of the no-eggs thing. In fact, the chocolate ganache covering the cake was what gave it the flavour! But…if you’re not a big dark chocolate fan (like me), then I would suggest maybe using milk chocolate – I used 50% dark chocolate, instead of 70%, like the recipe asked, and it was still super strong! Plus, I think, the next time I make this, I’ll put jam in the middle of the layers, instead of more ganache, just for a little bit more flavour 🙂
Look how tall my cake is! I’ve never made a cake so tall before! (Although, you guys don’t know how big my hands are. I might have tiny hands… I don’t – and I have piano to thank for that 😀 ) My limit has been the standard two-layers and this one was seven! I messed up a bit with the ganache, as I left it in the fridge a bit too long and it solidified too much for me to smooth it out properly – but I was impatient to see if it was bright inside – and I was delighted to find that it was!
Bright colours make me happy 🙂
As a side note, I didn’t realise until they arrived but my cake plates were more sandwich tins, than cake plates. As a result, I basically halved all of my ingredients (and I’m glad I did, I didn’t realise that I didn’t have enough condensed milk for the actual recipe – even though I had four tins! Four!), which still resulted in a huge cake. Can you imagine how big it would have been if I’d had actual cake pans??
