i am in LOVE with this cake!! it looks sooo yummy and like the perfect shower cake!!



In English:
I love making cakes that contain a little surprise on the inside, but are really simple on the outside. This is one of those cakes. I have long thought of making a rainbow cake because they are so stunning, but I wanted to use a cohesive color scheme. I didn't really use much coloring, but if you don't like the idea of coloring your cake, I'm sure you can switch some of the water for pureed berries or juice from beetroot. Or just keep it natural! It's all good.

Swiss meringue frosting
Makes enough to frost a 15 cm or 20 cm cake. Add 225 grams of butter to make Swiss meringue buttercream

•5 large egg whites
•200 grams sugar
•1 tsp vanilla extract

Put egg whites and sugar in a heat-proof bowl in a double boiler. The water in the saucepan should be simmering. Whisk with a hand whisk continously until the mixture reaches 65 degrees C. Remove from heat. Start whipping the egg whites with a stand or hand mixer until they become fluffy and white and the bowl is cool, this can take about 10 minutes.
