Rainbow cake

By Ingrid Fetell Lee

I posted Leah Rosenberg’s delightful work earlier this month, and couldn’t resist a follow-up post of this amazing rainbow cake she made for her show. The cake was 7′ feet long and made in 13 7″ sections, each with a different configuration of stripes. This really adds another joyful dimension — variation and surprise — as she writes:

So over time throughout the night, as it was cut & consumed (from both sides towards the center of the cake) the colors and stripe pattern of the slice of cake that you had would be different from the hours prior.

She must have been baking forever, but how beautiful! I also love how pure and serene the long white cake looks before it was cut. You’d never guess the riot of color that lay inside.

Check out more photos from the show here.

    I’m not a huge fan of cake, but this one I would gladly consume!

    I’m enjoying your blog- just stumbled upon it this week.

    That cake is joyful perfection!

    What is the brown inbetween each color? Is it the cooked bottom of each cake (cakes baked separately and stacked) ? Or a thin layer of chocolate cake (one cake)?

    What a fabulous cake! Such a shame it was served with plastic forks though.
