Its again a post on baking. Last week was my little boy's "HAPPY BIRTHDAY". He started planning for his birthday from last 3 months. But all his friends had gone out of the city since its their summer vacation. Poor boy! just like me, he too will never get a chance to distribute chocolates on his birthday in school. Ever since I baked a heart shaped Choco- Walnut cake for my hubby on his birthday, my son started complaining that I never baked a cake for his birthday and this time he too wanted a heart shaped cake on his much awaited birthday. It was a hectic week, and we already had ordered a surprise CHOTA BHEEM cake for our darling son. So, I decided to go with a Rainbow cake. I also baked his favorite Tutti Frutti cookies.
Rainbow Cake Recipe
Please follow the recipe of my Vanilla Cupcake here. Prepare the cake batter. Divide it into 4 to 5 equal portions. Mix different food colors to each portion like green, yellow, saffron, cocoa powder (brown). Leave one portion plain to get a off-white color in between.

Its similar to the way I baked Zebra Cake.
1. Lightly grease the round or heart shaped cake tin with little oil or line it with a parchment( baking) paper.
2. Take a ladle full of green color cake batter and pour it in the middle of the baking tin. Then carefully go on adding other colored batters in the middle allowing the batter to spread on its own. Repeat the process till you finish all the bowls. I still had some more left over colored batters and that was used by my hubby to show his art on Cupcakes ;)
3. Once done, carefully keep it in an oven at 180C for 45 mins. Cake is ready when a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
4. Remove the cake from the oven and carefully run a knife at the sides of the tin and invert it on a plate. Once cooled, decorate it with your favorite icing. I decorated it with whipped cream and Cadbury Gems.
And now here's the Black Forest Chota Bheem Cake we ordered for our birthday boy.
