How to Make Rainbow Surprise Party Cake


Preheat your oven to 360 F degrees or 180 C degrees. Butter and line with parchment paper five cake tins. Set them aside. In a large bowl, combine the milk and vinegar and wait several minutes to curdle a little bit.


In another bowl, combine sugar, flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the curdled milk into the dry ingredients and stir in the melted butter. Beat until the batter is smooth and well incorporated. Add in the vanilla extract and eggs and stir until smooth. Divide the batter into five bowls.


And in each bowl add in different food coloring. Pour the different colored batters in the pans and bake them for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle is cleaned.


To assemble the cake, whip up the heavy whipping cream alongside with vanilla and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form and spread it evenly on each cake layer. Top each layer of the cake one to another and in the middle make a small hole to put the m8m’s and gummy bears. Spread the whole cake with the remaining whipped cream and slice it so you can see how your candies are running over of the cake. Enjoy.
