I have been drooling over this cake for ages:
http://www.whisk-kid.com/2009/08/say-it-with-cake.html
I have never made a layer cake before so I thought, "What the hey, I'll try this one out!"
Two late night baking sessions later.....


My lovely hubby was concerned when he saw the huge bowl of buttercream frosting and the giant spoonfuls I was throwing on in-between layers.
"Stop honey, that's TOO much!!"
Bah, no one comes in the way of me and sugar!
So I kept piling it on.....
As I cleaned up the outside I did wonder if there was going to be thicker frosting than cake....



But I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

Anyone want to come over for cake?  Cheesy

What a great looking cake!  To me it doesn't look like there is too much frosting between layers.

It is so easy you should try it! I didn't follow the recipes at all, I cheated and used cake mixes for mine and just regular liquid food dye (in packet cake mixes they come out so well!) and just did buttercream frosting.  Cheesy

I'm looking forward to sending my hubby off to work with some to give to his friends. He is a labourer at Caltex oil refinery so I'm sure the guys out there could do with some energy food  Wink

It looks like something cakespy would make minus the unicorns...

I saw one on martha stewart but it looked messy. It was submitted by a reader and the layers were crooked.

But yours looks great!

Thank you so much for such lovely comments!  Cheesy
I always wanted to do it with flavours in every layer but it was a spur of the moment late night start and I just used what I already had (who doesn't have boxes of cake mix on standby in their cupboard?)  Tongue
I did make some neopolitan flavoured cupcakes a few days ago and they turned out pretty damn yummy too!

This is SO pretty!  Lovely!  I'm definitely going to have to try this out.

I've seen mini rainbow cupcakes as well -- put the different colored batters in piping bags (you can totally use a sandwich bag and slice off a corner) to make the layered colors.

It turned out so good! Every time I try to make a layer cake it slips and cracks. I am going to try again with denser cake and thicker icing.
