Recipe: Rainbow Cakes

It’s been a while since I’ve done any baking but one of my goals this month was to get baking again (bake a cake is what I actually put in my journal) so here I am with another recipe for cakes, rainbow cakes to be exact.

The ingredients

Cake mixture:

100g salted butter
95g caster sugar
100g self-raising flour
2 free range eggs XL
semi-skimmed milk

For the topping:

Cake Decor Unicorn Frosting
M&S Rainbow Belts
Swizzels Rainbow Drops

Makes: 12 small cakes


Mix the butter and sugar together with a spoon then add the 2 eggs and mix it all together with an electric whisk. Add the flour, stir it in then add a small amount of milk and stir it again until it’s all mixed in.

Preheat the oven to 180c.

Put your cake mixture into cases and put them on a baking tray, once the oven is warmed up bake them for approximately 18 minutes.

I started off with the timer on for 15 minutes then put it on for another 3. I checked them with a skewer when they were out of the oven to make sure they were cooked through properly.

Leave them to cool…

I baked mine before dinner so they could cool while we cooked/ate dinner then I decorated them after. I only decorated 5 because that’s the number we were going to eat straightaway.

I put some frosting on each cake, added half a Rainbow Belt to each one, along with some Rainbow Drops.

It’s great that the frosting comes with a nozzle so it’s super easy to use, straight from the tube! It’s a pretty blue/pink two-tone colour as well which is really cute and it’s raspberry flavoured as well.

  2. These look good and so colorful! The recipe looks pretty easy to make as well, which is nice. I will have to give these a try, I’ve only ever made one kind of cake before, so would be nice to try a different recipe and see how it compares.

    • It’s been my go to basic sponge recipe for a while now (I put it together a while back and it’s been my go to ever since!) Thanks Sarah. x
