Rainbow Polka dot Cake
Rainbow Polka dot Cake is a cake with polka-dot pattern on the outer or the inside of the cake. Rainbow polka dot cake is very attractive and cheerful because it is so colorful. That is why this Rainbow polka dot cake is suitable for birthday cake especially kids birthday cake. Children definitely love it a lot. Polka dot pattern is quite popular and we often see them on clothes, toys, and many other items. Polka dot pattern can be in one color combination and can also be in two or more color combinations. Polka dot pattern is essentially an array of filled circles. Polka dot pattern in one combination color is actually can be seen on Damaltian dog. Damaltian dogs become a trend at that time because of its uniqueness that enough to steal the attention of dog lover. Its unique black- or brown-spotted coat makes Damaltian dogs are different from other dogs. But can you imagine how if one Damaltian dogs have rainbow polka dot on its body? I think it will be very odd right? Huahahaa…
Anyway, as previously mentioned Rainbow polka dot pattern can be applied to the outer or inside of the cake. Probably by a glimpse we will think that apply rainbow polka dot pattern on the outer of the cake will be much easier than apply them on the inside. But actually it is just the same easy if we know how to do it. To apply rainbow polka dot on outer of your cake, you just need to prepare the icing for polka dots or you can just buy the icing at stores. But I am not going to discuss how to apply rainbow polka dot pattern on outer of the cake. But this time I am only want to give you out steps of how to make polka dots appear inside of your cake.
How to make Rainbow polka dot cake
Step 1. Bake polka dots (cake balls) inside cake
Prepare white cake mix
white cake mix recipe
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
In a medium bowl cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until the batter is smooth.
Now take the batter and divided them again evenly into six bowls for tinting. Use food coloring/soft gel pastel to color each batter. To make the cake balls you have two options. You can whether use cake pop baker to make your job easier or use your two hands if you are good enough to roll round perfectly. If you decide to use cake pop baker then you just scoop each batter with different color into the pan. But in case you choose to roll them by your hands then you have to roll them one by one round perfectly and place them in baking pan. In my opinion, it is better to use cake pop baker. Since not everyone can roll the batter perfectly the same size. Besides that using cake pop baker will not take much of your time. In here we are going to bake 18 cake balls. Why? It is because we are going to make three layer cakes. I think three layers cake is good because it will perform more polka dots inside the cake. Next, you bake the 18 cake balls at 350 degree for 25 – 30 minutes. While waiting for the cake balls to cool down. You can continue to do the three layer cake.
Step 2. Three layers cake
Prepare white cake mix
Pour the batter in three of 6 inch round pan. Don’t pour them all first. You just pour enough to cover the bottom of the pans. Then placed six rainbow cake balls (it means in one pan you have to place six cake balls with six different colors). The remaining batter is scooped over each ball to cover. Bake them at 350 degree for 30 – 40 min. Finally you just wait for them to cool down arrange and frost them or decorate them as you wish.
The colors of Rainbow polka dot cake – red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet.
Nb. Seven rainbow color (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet) but mostly people prefer to apply on six of the rainbow color because blue and indigo are closely the same.
