This week, I made a birthday cake for my friend’s husband. The brief was a very black cake with hints of purple, skulls and other black decorations but with a surprise inside. The surprise was a bright, 6 layer rainbow sponge with white buttercream, a complete contrast to the outside. Scroll to the bottom for a picture my friend kindly sent me when the cake was cut into!!
I absolutely love how this cake turned out! All relevant info on how I made it can be found below –
I used Sugarflair colours inside and out, to find out more about how to make a rainbow cake click here.

The drips and shards were made with black Candy Melts.
The skulls and other decorations were made with Renshaw black modelling paste and silicone moulds.
Hope you like it as much as I do!
