In the meantime, I wanted to share some of the most inspiring resources I found on rainbow cakes so far,
- "Best-Rainbow-Cake-Tutorial" Rainbow Cake from Aleta at Omnomicon
The most extensive tutorial that I have come across so far. The photos were lovely and I kinda like how offbeat her cake turned out. I noted that tip about using gel colors vs the food coloring or pigment dyes.
- The "How-Did-She-Do-That?" Rainbow Cake from Tickly Moo at the Tickly Moo Blog
I am no cake master so I am not sure how she managed to create the inside-out layers here. Anyone? And oh yes, I stumbled into her etsy store and she makes the cutest felt crowns!
- "Six-Colors-Only-But-Very-Neat" Rainbow Cake from Meaghan at A Typical Life
OK so I am shallow - I like the colors on my rainbow cake to be neatly and clearly delineated so this one was probably my fave of the lot. I am also probably going to try this method for my first rainbow cake.
- The "Special-Effects-Category-Winner" Rainbow Cake from Happy Belly via Flickr
Oooh I like how she used the toothpick to create the spiderweb effect!
