I made this cake for my friends 16th birthday - It ended up being very different from what I had planned (I was going to completly cover it in frosting so the multicolured inside was surprise.) However I prefer it how it is, as I'm very proud of how the multicoloured effect turned out. The picture makes it look a little bit washed out but they're still a fairly acurate representation.


The middle load of frostung is actually in a loveheart shape, which you can't really see very well on either of the pictures. Considering I didn't have any special equipment (a palet knife, plastic bag for piping and hot water were about my  only tools for putting on my frosting) I can just about forgive myself the rather messy icing.

If anyone has any questions don't hesitate to ask Cheesy

That looks awesome with all the colors! How did you make it do different colors?

Thanks Grin I just made up the cake mixture, then split it up into different bowls and added food colouring (in my case red, green, blue and one normal). I then just put spoons of different colours into the cake tin, dotted around a little bit and and used a knife to flatten it all out. I also used a fork to swoosh the colours up a little bit so that when an actual slice is cut its a bit mixed up inside (eaton before I could take a picture Cheesy). What you can see on the top of the cake was actually the bottom of the cake (ie. at the bottom of the cake tin) because as you have to spread the mix about on the top to get an even layer the colours mix together and also the sugar browns it all off anyway, like with a normal cake. So therefore you can only really see the different colours clearly on the bottom of the cake.

Hope thats all clear - bit of a long and probably overcomplicated explanation/
