Conquer the Super Epic Rainbow Cake

, Stanford '12 Alum

Never baked a cake from scratch? Are all the cakes you bake single-tier? At first glance, the Super Epic Rainbow Cake is an intimidating, multi-colored, six-layer masterpiece frosted with glossy white buttercream, but it's really not that difficult. I'll break down the steps so beginners and cake mix groupies can conquer this and other layer cakes.

Here's what you'll be doing and learning:

  • The basics of baking a cake from scratch (creaming butter and sugar, adding liquids and dry ingredients)
  • Using gel food coloring
  • Butter and flouring a cake pan
  • Beating egg whites, sugar, and butter into a Swiss meringue
  • How to fill, stack, and crumb coat a layer cake (then frost it!)
  • Cake troubleshooting 
Eating the cake is optional, but strongly encouraged. If you don't eat it, the Skillshare team will. 
This is a hands-on class, so be prepared to get your hands dirty! If you're allergic to eggs or gluten, this probably isn't the class for you.
