Rainbow Marble Layer Cake

Yield: One 9″ layer cake

Ingredients Needed

•           1 lb Unsalted Butter (softened)

•           1 lb White Sugar

•           4 large Eggs (room temperature)

•           Peel of 1 Lime

•           5 cups Cake Flour

•           4 tsp Baking Powder

•           3 heaped tbsp Dairy Dairy ABC Powdered Milk + 1 cup Water (mixed)

•           2 tsp Vanilla Extract

•           3/4 tsp Salt

•           Purple, Blue, Green, Pink & Yellow Food Colouring

•           2 cups Buttercream Frosting


•           Prepare two 9” cake pans, set aside.

•           Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

•           Beat eggs with lime peel and add to creamed mixture.

•           Sift flour and baking powder together, then add to mixture alternating  with Dairy Dairy ABC Powdered Milk. Add vanilla and salt. Mix on high speed until completely smooth.

•           Divide mixture into 5 bowls. Using food colouring, tint 1 portion purple and remaining portions blue, green, pink and yellow.

•           Drop tablespoons of each mixture, alternating colours, into prepared cake pans.

•           Run a spoon back and forth through each filled pan to create a slight marbled effect.

•           Bake cakes for 25 minutes at 350º F. A toothpick inserted into the centre should come out clean but moist.

•           Allow pans to cool for at least 15 minutes before removing cakes.

•           Using a serrated knife, cut cakes in half horizontally to create four layers – cakes will be firmer and easier to cut if they are chilled first.

•           Spread frosting between each layer and over the top and sides of completed cake. Decorate with rainbow sprinkles and serve.
