Spectacular Rainbow Painted Party Cake Tutorial | Cupcake Jemma

Hi there you might recognize Sally from such videos of how to sugar poster cake yes it was a long time ago though but a lot of you have seen that video so you probably know who Sally is sally was decorating a cake for her friend the other night and me and

Nicky and Sally were hanging out the kitchen while she made it and it was just so cool that I thought it would be really fun if study showed us how she did it so the technique that I'm going to show

You it's really simple and it's something I tried out a few times on some wedding cakes for friends sorry friends testing out all my techniques on you and so to start with what I have here is a nice tool it's a six inch cake

You can do whatever size cake you like and it's been crumb coated it's nice and firm from the fridge and we're just going to top coat that first you've seen German top cake cakes loads of time so I'll just do it really quickly but I

Might throw in some useful healthy tips whilst I'm doing this sorry and I'm gonna get Gemma to mix up some colors because this is gonna have a rainbow design on it so we need heaps of colors we're gonna go for ten colors you can do

Like you're gonna have to do ten colors and you could do this in a different effect you can like ombre like blues and purples or something but we're gonna go rain baby King you might have noticed we're also representing pretty much all

The colors of the rainbow with our outfit which kind of wasn't planned as usual as you all know we need to put lots of icing on first and then we're gonna smooth it off it's much easier to start with more and then to use a little

Bit at a time so I've got my smoother which you've also seen down there using heaps it's the best thing you can actually have for cake decorating so get one they're really cheap and when you're using this this is probably my best tip

For today so when you're smoothing it I feel a lot of people doing this the 90 degree angle like this so the only bit is touching the Cape is this edge here and what that's gonna do if you would it's just gonna scrape it

Off and it's make it very smooth what you want to do is have as much of this area of the smoother touching your cake so rather than like this I'm going to hold it like this so it's gently smoothing it out as

You go around so whilst are you seeing that I'm getting on with the making my incredible 10 color rainbow I mean there is an infinite number of colors in the rainbow but 10 is about as much as I can handle

And as usual I'm using color pace rather than liquid or color gels if you prefer to call them that I'm happy with my size they're nice smooth and straight so it's needs to do my top I've switched to the normal size smoother just because the

Cake says no no it's got a small parameter a tall diameter I know if I use that big one it's just SS living so I've got my smoother here and what I'm going to do is I'm just going to cut the icing into the center and my top tip for

This is to have a piece of tissue paper or something next to you every single time you swipe into the center give you a smoother a wipe if there's any excess that you've got on your smoother that's just going to go back on your cake and

Then if you have any little bits on the top that you want to sort of hide you can just use your little cranked pallet knife I'm pretty happy with that before we start adding our color we're going to put this in the fridge just for sort of

15 minutes just to firm it up a bit because when we apply the rainbow colors we're gonna be you know using a little bit of not force but a bit of force so we don't want to we don't want to smash it and merge it with the white icing

I've still got about catching up today because the 10 colors here and I'm slow alright this little guy is ready are you ready I'm so nearly ready I'm just finishing the pink and that's last color yeah it's a lot of colors anyway to see

If we do that but I look beautiful now we can start adding our color I'm gonna start and I'm gonna show you my suit she's gonna have a good stuff it's it's really really easy and you can't go wrong right so this cake it's

Gonna have a rainbow effect going from red at the top all the way through orange yellow green blue purple to the bottom so we'll start with our red and I'm gonna use a crank pallet knife for this little one I'm gonna take a tiny

Little blob of icing what we're gonna do is put it on our cake put a little bit of pressure in and sweep up and now I've done a couple of red singing start with the orange so I want them to look blends but swatters smush together a

Teeny bit if you feel like you're losing some of the colors like Gemma said we can just add them over the top again like the red if you want to put everywhere here it's like so cool in a moment yeah it's like a fire but it's

Gonna look more like a parrot ass you know yeah slightly a two-tier fish today a Hawaiian so are you gonna pass them to Gemma and she's gonna have it good what we're gonna do is sort of look like you could cover the whole cake but that

Might be a tad overkill I mean it really is whatever floats your boat guys if you want to cover this whole thing in a rainbow that's absolutely fine go for it and but we're not then we're gonna have like a nice sweep going across the cake

Like this so I'm gonna persist okay what you wanted to make sure demo yeah wipe your phone every time because otherwise that happens this will happen oh it's like I've never done anything like this loads and then if you feel like this is

Quite a big jump from this sort of owns to the Green Week I think I think it's pretty yeah I think anybody – you can leave it like this but I leave it like this when we can go even over the top more more MORE

So I'm gonna add a tiny little bit of gold leaf and Gemma's gonna put some of these colors into some piping bags and set different nozzles and we're gonna put some gloves and Waring's on top I love it

Yeah and please I think it's suitably ridiculously flamboyant so do you know how to do it stop it really is I wanted to carry on not really I know please give this a go and maybe try and apply the technique of the painting to

Something else like flowers or change up the colors or anything and if you do make this let me know by using hashtag cupcake Gemma on your Instagram posts maybe even cupcakes Ali why not actually she's bundt cakes Ali she's not

Okay funny and if you want to get your hands on one of our lovely aprons which you may have been sporting all this time keeping our lovely ridiculously loud shirts from getting more loud then head over to cupcake jammer comm where you
