I’m not really into baking cakes.
For me, it’s too many steps to take for something I could buy from someone who can do it way better. Also, I’m not a big fan of eating cake. Cookies? All day, everyday. Cakes? Meh.
However, for birthdays, I acquiesce to those I love.
My seven-year-old requested a rainbow cake for his birthday.
So, I started with bowls of the rainbow-y colors I had available. Not all the colors of the rainbow, as my kid so aptly pointed out:
These crème brule ramekins were the perfect size for the cake I needed to make. After all, it wasn’t for a big party but for four people. More like for two kids, because my husband enjoys cake about as much as I do.
I had extra batter, so I combined them side-by-side in another cake mold:
After layering and frosting the mini-cake, it came out looking alright.
I even attempted a chocolate drip from the top:
Cutting into the cake was the most fun for my kid.
He enjoyed all the layers and telling me how yellow is his favorite color:
Next time, I might attempt a cake with sprinkles in the middle, just to torture myself.
