Rainbow Delight


This cake is for my nephew’s 5 years old birthday.  It’s special to him because it is a home baked birthday cake from 姨妈 (that’s me, his only aunt.)

This is an excellent cake for someone like me who has, yet, pipe a cake skillfully.  And you know what?  The colourful M&M chocolates have covered the flaw of the cake that I have created when doing creaming.  Ha ha!

My nephew was so thrilled and totally blown away by this colourful cake.  It has his favorite M&M chocolates and Kit Kat on it.  He doesn’t know how to express his gratefulness to me.  But from his happy face, it’s already made me feel so accomplished.

As the cake is full of chocolates and candies, so I decided not to have chocolate cake.  As usual, I used my favourite Plain Sponge Cake recipe.  But this time, the cake didn’t turn up to be as good as the Pineapple Birthday cake, which I baked for my friend’s birthday.  The cake is a bit hard and I think I must have over baked it.  I should have shortened the baking time for 10” cake tin. 

 Nevertheless, it was still yummy as commented by my siblings.  Feeling so encouraged…

“Rainbow Delight”  - It was named by Helen, my colleague because it’s a happy and colourful cake that makes people feel delightful.
