I've been wanting to make a rainbow cake forever and finally managed one this week! It'll take a little while to make it but it's worth it just for the 'wow factor!'

Just. Fabulous!

You will need:

4 eggs
8oz self-raising flour
8oz caster sugar
8oz margarine

For the icing:

300g icing sugar
50g margarine
125g cream cheese

To make:

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees

Mix the eggs, self-raising flour, caster sugar and margarine together to create the sponge mix

Divide into six equal portions and mix with your food colourings/gels

Grease and line six sandwich tins (if you have that many! I did it in two rounds of three tins) with coloured mixes

Bake for around 20-25 minutes, keeping an eye on the cakes

Leave in the tins to cool for a while before turning them out onto wire racks

Once they're cool, layer the cakes and secure with the cream cheese icing

Top the top layer with icing, and, if you have enough, the sides too!
