JennaRae Cakes 4 Colored Layer Cake

See below for a simple 5 step instruction on how to make it yourself, along with a fun video tutorial!

  1. Prepare your favorite sponge cake recipe, then separate the batter into 4 batches. Tint each batch a different color to create a layered rainbow effect in the final cake. Bake each cake layer in an 8” round cake pan. Cool completely, then level off the top of each cake layer to create a flat surface.
  2. Using a 3” cutter, cut a small round circle out of 3 of the 4 cake layers. Start with one circle cut layer, frost, and repeat with remaining two circle cut layers.
  3. Fill cake with gold Sugarfina Pearls! Top with last full cake layer. Frost side and top of cake into a smooth surface.
  4. Top with buttercream peaks, and an assortment of candies and sweet treats.
  5. Cut in and enjoy the sweet surprise!
