Buttercream Piped Rainbow Cake For Pride Month

The buttercream piped rainbow cake might very well be one of my favourite cakes to make – each time they turn out differently, but they are always MAJORLY BLASTED WITH COLOUR! To celebrate Pride Month, I teamed up with a crew of excellent cake makers on Instagram to create #freshtakesonrainbowcakes! Hashtag alert! I know, I know. I love making up hashtags. My best hashtag ever though has got to be #putitinyourbagandpipeit, hehe! Makes me chuckle every time…

Loved how these rainbow layers looked all stacked up with different shades of vanilla buttercream! I think you could stop right there if you wanted! Rainbow naked cake?? I used the vanilla cake recipe from my book and divided the batter into five bowls, tinting each a different shade. For both the cake layers and the buttercreams, I used gel colours from both Americolor and Wilton brand. My favourite vibrant gel colours are Americolor “electric pink” and “electric purple” – I also love mixing teals, turquoises and sky blue together as well as leaf green and a touch of yellow to make it a bit more fluorescent.

For the buttercream piping, I used Wilton petal tip #104 to make the roses, Wilton #234 for the furry drop-pom-poms, and Wilton tips #20, #22 and #32 for the drop stars and rosettes! I used a small leaf tip to fill in any gaps as well.

Happy Pride month, year, and every day! Vancouver has their Pride celebrations in August – for the past few years, Teddy and I have marched as allies at the Dyke March, and I feel grateful that we get to live in such a great community. I am also proud to raise Teddy in a way that values and normalizes gay, straight and everything-in-between relationships – love is love, and love is what matters most. xo Lyndsay

    Colour combination of the cake is looking very beautiful. Must be a treat to eat and especially the toppings are looking so beautiful and the buttercream just completes the cake. Thanks for sharing this wonderful cake. Can you please share the recipe.
