A beautiful bake that needs a little personality.

This cake is gorgeous to look at! It is enjoyed by both adults and children. I would recommend turning it into an ice cream cake by adding a layer of ice cream between the layers instead of the icing provided. You do have to work quickly and store the cake in the freezer though. Instead of ice cream you could personal the in between layer with a chocolate sauce or jam or something flavourfull to add some spice to this creation. Next time I'm going to try flavoured essence to the actual batter. Aside from missing the delicious tastes like in the vanilla and chocolate creations this premix gets a 5star from me but that is based purely on looks. 🙊

My kids love rainbow cake

I have had only positive results using the rainbow cake mix. My kids love it. Have made the tie dye variation as well. simple, affordable and tasty.

Good looking cake

I made this on Saturday as a surprise for my little boy. The colors were eye popping and entirely pleased a 3 year-old. :-). I did a slight modification to the icing, adding a quarter teaspoon of almond essence. This worked really well! The only downside is that although I did a fairly even split of the batter, for 4 layers it really needs to make a bit more batter than it does, as it just reached the sides of the 20cm cake pans. Next time I think I may try them in smaller cake pans. But overall very good, thank you.

Thanks so much for your honest review of our Creations Rainbow Cake Kit.

It is very unusual that the approved food colourings in our Creations kits should leave any aftertaste at all and we will be looking into this. In the meantime, our customer service team will be in touch directly. Kind regards, The Snowflake Team

Rainbow cake - looks nice taste yuck!

My daughter always wanted a rainbow cake. I don't bake much anymore, so I wanted to be lazy. So I tried a premix cake and you had the rainbow cake. Well, it was awful. I proved a point rather bake from scratch than a premix. The only good thing about the cake was the colours they came out like the picture. I would rather use gel colours than powder because it doesn't leave an after taste like the powder.
