I'm playing with colors the past couple of days.

I saw my niece got crazy about the apam polka dot we had during the weekend's kenduri arwah, ordered from her mom's friend. I wanna try making it.

So when I got home, I set immediately looking for the recipe and made apam polka dot.  And then because I have all the colours, I went ahead and tried the famous rainbow cakes I've seen in pinterest and mommy bloggers. I can't say I'm too happy with the outcome, of both cakes. Today I make another batch of the polka dots cuppies because I knew I was technically wrong the first time but I still end up dissatisfied the second time around.

Oh well, anyway, here are the shots.

It's not light and fluffy enough to taste. I like the colors tho and I enjoy dotting the batter.

The next foray, Layered Rainbow Cake. I followed Martha Stewart's recipe.

Hugely disappointed with the stacking disaster, because everything else was going smooth up until then. The layers baked beautifully, the colors were gorgeous, BUT then the cakes won't come off the parchment paper. Stuck like glue. I double greased the pan for the rest of the batches so those were rescued but the first two were just horror.( Good thing I only have the 2 baking pans to alternate and had a chance to damage-control. If I had done this in all 6 pans?) I had to tear the paper off bit by bit to avoid breaking but the edges were gone.  totally didn't expect this. I worried about domed cakes (I hate levelling), I worried about the colors but I never had problems with baking paper not coming off before.  I patched up with lots of frosting and force the stacks. I should maybe just discard the destroyed ones and stack incomplete colors. I needed to see the rainbow even if its crooked.

Better week ahead to you.
