I love baking and I have since I was very little. The first thing I learned to make was biscuits. I'd refer to them, to Mum, as the "rubbing in things" since I used to love rubbing the butter and flour together. As I've grown older, I've obviously developed more independence in the kitchen. But, the biggest change, is how much I dislike being hands on now! Very much, I prefer to stick it all in a mixture and watch it wiz up. Nice and easy but nice and tasty.
Anyway, enough of my history of cooking. A few days ago, I decided to make rainbow cakes. Although I'm sure these have been done before, I came up with the idea with a little inspo from Tanya Burr's rainbow cake. So, here's the recipe.
It's a pretty simple recipe, just your normal cake really.
7. Spoon a small amount of each colour into a tray of cupcake cases (it makes 24 roughly).
8. Carefully not to mix the colours too much, smooth the top of the cakes
9. Put in the oven for about 15 - 20 minutes, or until they stop sizzling, a knife comes out clean and when genitally tapped they rise back up.
10. After about 10 minutes after taking them out the oven, leave to cool on a cooling rack.
Don't worry, they may appear like normal cakes - the colour is inside.
I really loved these cakes. One of my friends told me that they looked quite flat, it's because I don't put much mixture in cake cases haha. I'd rather smaller cakes but more of them! Also, they went dry quite quickly. They were ok when taken out of the oven but after a day they went dry but I think that's just the type of cake.
Until next time.
