Ingredients

Total Cooking Time: 30 - 60 minutes
8 Servings
  • baking powder20 egg whites350
  • Milk300 mlred , orange, yellow, green, blue, purple gel food colouring1
  • Rice flour600 gramssalt5
  • sugar450 unsalted butter200
  • vanilla extract10 vegetable shortening50

Cooking Method

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush six 9-inch-round cake pans (or as many 9-inch cake pans as you have, reusing them as necessary) with shortening. Line bottom of each cake pan with parchment paper; brush again and set aside.
  • Step 2
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush six 9-inch-round cake pans (or as many 9-inch cake pans as you have, reusing them as necessary) with shortening. Line bottom of each cake pan with parchment paper; brush again and set aside.
  • Step 3
    Add vanilla and mix until fully incorporated. Add flour mixture and milk in two alternating additions, beginning with the flour and ending with the milk. Mix until well combined.
  • Step 4
    Divide batter evenly between six medium bowls. Add enough of each color of food coloring to each bowl, whisking, until desired shade is reached. Transfer each color to an individual cake pan.
  • Step 5
    Transfer to oven and bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of each cake comes out clean, about 15 minutes (working in batches if necessary).
  • Step 6
    Remove cakes from oven and transfer to a wire rack; let cool for 10 minutes. Invert cakes onto a wire rack; re-invert and let cool completely.
  • Step 7
    Using a serrated knife, trim tops of cakes to make level. Place four strips of parchment paper around perimeter of a serving plate or lazy Susan. Place the purple layer on the cake plate.
  • Step 8
    Spread a scant 1 cup buttercream filling over the first layer with a small offset spatula so it extends just beyond edges. Repeat process with blue, green, yellow, and orange layers.
  • Step 9
    Place the remaining red layer on top, bottom-side up. Gently sweep away any loose crumbs with a pastry brush.
  • Step 10
    Using an offset spatula, cover the top and sides with a thin layer of frosting (also use any of the excess frosting visible between the layers). Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.
