The Rainbow Cake seems to be the next big thing in the world of cafes and cake shops. If all cakes would to join a beauty contest now, this visual treat would win hands down.
Who won’t be attracted by a seven (or some six) multi-coloured cake? This is for sure to make kids jump with joy and young girls whip out their handphones for a cam moment. (Read: Rainbow Pancakes at Nook DIY House of Pancakes)
The most popular Rainbow Cake in Singapore is from The Production Kitchen by Jacqui Co (in the midst of relocation), also famous for its carrot and chocolate cakes, and Madagascar vanilla bean cupcakes with salted caramel frosting. They are often swamped with orders, and making each is too labour-intensive.
Its customized 7-inch rainbow cake cost a whooping 100 bucks though.
I had my Rainbow Cake at Le Chocolat Café for $7 a slice, recommended by my friend Elaine and the reliable i-weekly. When the cake arrived, we almost went for an orgasmic “wow”.
The bright red-orange-yellow-green-blue-dark purple cake was covered with chocolate and dripping beautifully with chocolate. It felt like chocolate rain over the velvet sky.
What the Rainbow Cake can promise in beauty, it may not in taste. Every layer was almost too sweet, possible over-enhanced with the food colourings. And if you closed your eyes to eat them, it would just feel like a saccharine butter cake.
Other places which sell the Rainbow Cake in Singapore include 1 Caramel Dessert Boutique, Designer Bakes at Centrepoint and My Fat Lady at Haji Lane. Drop a comment here if you know of anywhere else.
