And what could be cooler then a good tasting marzipan cake with an included rainbow?
This is a reciep i came up with about 17 months ago, to my own birthday.
I since then enhanced it, until even i ate it. (i'm usually not into cakes...)
It not only looks really cool and tastes good, it also wont dry out as fast as a normal cake would.
I published the reciepe a year ago on my blog and on my board (in german), and i thought that this has to be on instructables.
Step 1: Ingredients and Tools
I am only used to the metrical system, but for your convenience i used a converting table, to also give you imperial measurements. But maybee you still wanna check that yourself.
I hope Cups are allright? If not, tell me.
