  • I’ve made something like this before but with lighter colours – had to be because it was for an adult. I love this one for the kids.


  • I did something similar as a unicorn cake with pastel shades- so easy and looks amazing!


  • Thanks for sharing.


  • looks like fun for all


  • Great idea – thanks for sharing your clever recipe.


  • Great idea. I am making one similar to yours but using natural way to color it (spinach beetroot )


  • This would be a great cake to make over the school holidays with the kids


  • Lovely cooking activity to do with kids.


  • This is so pretty!


  • Ooh, I know a 5 year old girl who is all about rainbows and bright colours. This will match the jumper I’ve just bought her.


  • Not a bad way of doing it, prob works better than the way I do it of just adding food colouring to the mix and swirling it through with a wooden skewer. Thanks for the tip!


  • Very colourful !


  • Great idea for my sons birthday cake. Sure he will be wowed
