For special occasions you need a special cake! It was my friends birthday this week and I surprised her with a rainbow cake. On the inside there was a lovely vanilla sponge layered up with cream icing and raspberries.
To make the vanilla sponge you need:
500 g unsalted butter (softened), 500 g caster sugar, 6 free range eggs,
500 g self-raising flour, 6 tbsp milk, 1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix the ingredients in stages together until you have a smooth and airy mixture. Then fill the vanilla sponge mixture into 5 greased and floured round tins. Put them in the preheated often (170° C) for about 20 min.
Whilst the cake is in the oven we can prepare the icing. You need:
250 g soft unsalted butter, 50 g cream cheese, 1 tbsp nature yoghurt,
700 g sifted icing sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, food colouring,
(and some raspberries for the filling)
Mix all the ingredients except the icing sugar together until the mixture is white. Then add the icing sugar in two stages. After everything is nicely combined whisk the icing for another 5 min.
Now on to assembling the cake:
