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 didnt 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!
(ffichiban’s image) hee slices of swirlys!
