It was FFichiban’s birthday a while back and I was determined to make him a mario mushroom cake but with the added bonus of rainbow innards!
Woohoo rainbow innards! This is ffichibans pic cos I was unable to chop inside and sneak a peek at the cakes innards but woo swirls! I was inspired by the awesome omnomicon
Want a super basic guide? Make your cake batter. Divide into 4 bowls or however many colours you want
Heh lurid! I used food colouring gels for the red, blue and green. Yellow was a bit runny becos I didn’t have yellow gel and used normal food colouring liquid.
Now dollop your colours! It works much better in a normal circle cake tin but I like making life difficult for me and used a cupcake shaped pan which I turned into mushroom later. He turned out wonky cos the tin sloped a bit and the colours ran
While your cake is baking take a pretty photo of the colourful spoons and bowls
I had some batter left over and made a coupla cupcakes too
Heh heh he’s a bit ugly after I tipped him outta the tin and got a little broken in the middle but not to worry I’ll be covering him in delicious icing!
