Rainbow Layer Cake Recipe / 6 Layer - Rainbow Birthday Cake - Maha's 1st Birthday Cake

I was planning for maha's birthday for atleast past two months. We are taking a grand birthday party on sep 8th which is on maha's star birthday, so i decided to have a small party in my house on her date of birth.I wanted to make all the foods as well the cake for maha. So i planned for a week and decided the menu. I planned to make gulab jamun, vegetable samosas, jeera rice, paneer butter masala, battura, chana masala, gobi manchurian dry, mixed fruit curd rice, and fruit chat. I worked on that for 2 whole days..It was too much stressing and tiring, but when i looked at the end it was amazing, everyone loved it and dig into the food, they really enjoyed the food. I AM ONE HAPPY MOM..

I know that for a birthday party, the grant center piece is going to be a cake. I wanted to give really special cake on her birthday. I wanted to make a colourful cake for her birthday, because as a mom i wanted her first birthday and the years after that to be very colourful and joyful..So i decided to make a 6 layer rainbow cake..Since i have already made a tri colour cake, i was confident enough to make this cake..

I searched all over the net and found this recipe simple and easy. So i took that recipe and adopted to my taste and made this..It was delicious..I baked the cake a day in advance. I baked all the 6 layer cake under 1 hour. I allowed it to cool completely and wrapped it in cling film and refrigerated it. The next day morning i worked on the decoration part. Actually i wanted to do colourful roses as decoration, but the buttercream which i made was not enough to work on the frosting, so i went for a easy yet rustic home style decoration, I hope you like it..

The party is all set and when we sliced the cake, the surprise in everyone's eyes is so enjoyable..I love to see these kind of surprises..So you have to bake this cake for your loved ones birthday and enjoy the happiness they get when they slice into it..

And dont forget to keep the name of the cake as a surprise like i did, so it will be even more exciting..
