Celebration Cake with 6 layers of different colors and frosted with whipped cream frosting. I made this for my daughter second birthday and got some good appreciations from friends. Even some asked me if I am taking orders. Though I am not too good in frosting, this came out so good with simple decorations on top with gems and drizzles.

I used my wheat flour cake sweetened with brown sugar as base. Use gel colors or any natural coloring too. Since I planned suddenly to make rainbow cake I used colors only. You can use different vegetables for coloring instead of artificial colors. It took me whole day to make this cake as I was baking one layer at a time. I have small oven and have only one round shape mould. If you have 2-3 baking tins of same size, you can bake them parallel in oven and stove too. It took me 40 minutes to bake one layer cake and 20 minutes to cool down. It was totally worth the effort and kids will enjoy them. Below is my party table
