Conquer the Super Epic Rainbow Cake

By ·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. 
Prerequisites
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.

Gabrielle Gulo

Stanford '12 Alum

A Stanford grad and California transplant (but New Jersey native), Gaby is a foodie that will never say no to culinary excursions of any kind. After an internship stint at Luke's Lobster, she found her calling in food and the art of the hustle, which eventually led her to the NYC tech scene, the best way to combine her foodie love and Silicon Valley swag. She formerly worked at Skillshare on the Community Management team, which really was as awesome as it sounds, and also blogs sporadically on Some English Major.

Although she's not a professional-grade pastry chef, Gaby's been baking from scratch since middle school. Baking with love and raw ingredients is much better than using processed cake mix.
