Layers upon layers of rainbow cake and whipped cream are the things of dessert-filled dreams.

Ingredients

Cake

  • 215 grams flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 132 grams sugar
  • 187 milliliters milk
  • 65 milliliters oil
  • 60 grams butter
  • 1 tablespoon yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cotton candy essence, or any type of essence you'd like
  • 1 drop purple food gel
  • 2 drops pink food gel
  • 1 drop blue food gel
  • Sprinkles
  • 3 maraschino cherries

Cream

  • 1 1/2 cups thickened/whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Steps

Cake

  1. Preheat a fan-forced oven to 160C (320F) or 180C (356F) for a conventional oven. Line a large baking tray with oil spray and baking paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, caster sugar and salt.
  3. Use a hand mixer or hand whisk to mix on low speed and allow it to mix for a couple minutes to help everything combine well (alternatively you may do this by sifting the ingredients together).
  4. Add the softened butter and let it mix until it resembles a fine sand like texture.
  5. Next, add milk, eggs, yogurt, oil, cotton candy essence and vanilla extract in a large jug and whisk well.
  6. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients in a slow and steady stream until no dry ingredients are visible. Scrape down the bowl and mix for another 20 seconds.
  7. Split batter into 4 bowls. Color one bowl with pink, another with purple and pink, another with blue and leave the 4th as un-colored batter.
  8. Spoon one tablespoon of each colored batter in random spots on your pre-prepared baking tray.
  9. Bake for 20-25 min or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  10. Allow to cool completely on a wire cooling rack.
  11. Once cooled use a circle cutter which is a little smaller than the width of your jar. Cut out as many circles as you can.

Cream

  1. Add cream, condensed milk and vanilla extract into a large mixing bowl and whip to stiff peaks using a hand mixer.
  2. Add a swirl of whipped cream on the bottom of each serving jar.
  3. Add a layer of cake followed by cream until you reach the top.
  4. Finish with cream, sprinkles and a maraschino cherry.
