Rainbow Fruit Cake on a plate

Rainbow Fruit Cake

My son was born the day after my birthday and it was this cake that we had for his birthday party. It was a colorful party, so a rainbow cake was a perfect fit.

  • 10 Eggs
  • 2 cup Sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup Flour
  • Food Coloring
  • 3 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 10 oz Condensed Milk
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese; softened
  • Fresh Kiwi or Berries (any fruits of your choice)


Baking Colorful Layers

  • Beat eggs (no need to separate them) with sugar until it’s three times in volume. Using a spatula, fold in flour by thirds; be very gentle with dough, so you don't over mix it and lose the fluffiness. Separate dough into five different layers.
    Dough separated into 3 different bowls
  • Into each layer, add a color of your choice, fold in lightly, so you don't loose fluffiness.
    Food coloring folded into the dough: one is green other is yellow
  • Bake each layer at 350F in a 9" pan, for 15 minutes and check using a wooden toothpick. If the cake is ready, dough will not stick to the toothpick.

  • Beat cream cheese with condensed milk until you get a smooth texture, then add heavy whipping cream. Beat on high speed, until you get 3 times the volume. Make sure not to over beat, otherwise cream turns out runny.

Finalizing Cake

  • To keep the sides of the plate clean, cover with the plate with foil. Place a layer of cake, cover with cream and layer the fruits.

  • Cover the cake with the remaining cream, decorate the cake using fruits. (That really bad quality pic in the end is the only picture we have of the inside but at least it gives you an idea)
