Rainbow cake


My first time baking it was yearrrrsssssssss back during secondary school *specifically during home science class*. But during those days rainbow cake is not as fancy as today's. And although making it is fussy, given that it requires bowls and colorings, it is not as complicated as today's version. I remembered we just need to divide the batter into few portions and colour them one by one and layer them in the baking tin. It was a simple butter cake recipe but at that moment it felt like the most delicious rainbow cake I've ever tasted! The recipe goes a bit like this: "1 cup of butter, 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of flour etc"

The ingredients of a rainbow cake is very simple and easy but it's the baking part that makes people want to just settle down with only the regular yellow cake or sheet cake. Good thing I have my lil sister around! Having her around is like having a sample of make up from the mall. You have to make use of it fully because you don't always get to have one but the main reason is always because it is *ehem* free :P

So, I tried the best pound cake recipe by RBLAIR in allrecipes.com. The only alteration I've made is reducing the sugar *as usual* to 1 1/2 cup. I starting to think that Malaysia's sugar is the sweetest because I've always fine english recipes using too much sugar. Or maybe it is just me. I don't know.
we are still in our PJs ><"

After scrubbing the oven real hard, at last u can really see what's inside T_T
I'm using oil-base colouring as I find the result will be more vibrant!
Can you see the holes from the toothpick? *embarassing*

Just a friendly note, do not use almond essence in frosting! I've tried it for the frosting above and it was awful! I had to scrape out all the icing before eating the cake! This is the second time I'm using almond essence (the first time was in the failed macaroons) and will definitely be the last! Goodbye almond essence! Off to the bin you go~
