For vanilla sponge

Ten eggs 240g refined sugar 320g all-purpose flour 30g cake gel 12g baking powder

40g refined oil 7 VIBGYOR food colours 2-3 tsp of vanilla essence

For the cream cheese filling

7 6” round sponge sheet of ½ cm or larger height 125g cream cheese 120g butter 60g icing sugar 10ml vanilla essence 30g sugar syrup


To bake the vanilla sponge

Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk it. Then divide the mixture into seven equal parts and add the seven rainbows (VIBGYOR) colours to each of the seven parts separately.

Then move on to lining a 6-inch cake mould with butter or parchment paper and pour the coloured vanilla cake mix individually, one in each of the seven cake moulds. Bake at 180 deg Celsius for at least 20 minutes.

To make the cream cheese filling and assembling the cake.

Whisk the butter until it has soft peaks and is light and fluffy in its texture. To this, add the icing sugar and blend it well. Finally, add the vanilla essence.

To this, blend the buttercream along with the cream cheese. Now, take each of the coloured sponge and soak them with sugar syrup by carefully pouring on them. In the order of VIBGYOR, lay the violet sponge down first and layer with the cream cheese and buttercream mixture.

Now add the next layer, which is in the indigo colour and repeat the layering of the mixture, following it up with sponges of blue, green, yellow, orange and red. Continue doing until you top the red sponge with the filling. Dust it with icing sugar and cut a nice chunky slice to enjoy!
