Tutorial: Rainbow Petal Cake

This bright, fun rainbow cake made with creamy delicious buttercream icing is one of our favourite techniques from Cake Style. It’s ideal for birthday parties and we think the adults will love it too!

To create this cake at home, you will need:

  • 1 x 7 inch crumb coated cake (or a foam dummy cake if you’re practising)
  • A small spatula
  • A cake scraper or ruler
  • A piping bag
  • A piping coupler (optional)
  • No. 104 piping tip
  • A laminating sheet to practice piping petals
  • Buttercream icing (your own recipe or our Buttercream Icing premix)
