- 240g refined sugar
- 320g all-purpose flour
- 30g cake gel
- 12g baking powder
- 40g refined oil
- 7 VIBGYOR meals colors
- 2-3 tsp of vanilla essence
For the cream cheese filling
- 7 6” spherical sponge sheet of ½ cm or bigger top
- 125g cream cheese
- 120g butter
- 60g icing sugar
- 10ml vanilla essence
- 30g sugar syrup
To bake the vanilla sponge
*Add all of the components to a big mixing bowl and whisk it. Then divide the combination into seven equal components and add the seven rainbow (VIBGYOR) colors to every of the 7 components individually.
*Then transfer on to lining a 6-inch cake mould with butter or parchment paper and pour the colored vanilla cake combine individually, one in every of the seven cake moulds.
*Bake at 180 deg Celsius for not less than 20 minutes.
To make the cream cheese filling and assembling the cake
*Whisk the butter till it has tender peaks and is mild and fluffy in its texture. To this, add the icing sugar and mix it nicely.
*Lastly, add the vanilla essence. To this, mix the buttercream together with the cream cheese.
*Now, take every of the colored sponge and soak them with sugar syrup by fastidiously pouring on them.
*Within the order of VIBGYOR, lay the violet sponge down first and layer with the cream cheese and buttercream combination.
*Now add the subsequent layer which is within the indigo color and repeat the layering of the combination, following it up with sponges of blue, inexperienced, yellow, orange and purple.
*Proceed doing till you prime the purple sponge with the filling. Mud it with icing sugar and minimize a pleasant chunky slice to get pleasure from!
