Lovely, I'm very impressed with your Rainbow cake! I've never tried Guinness cake - does it taste of Guinness? As we are showing off here's the cake I made for my daughter's second birthday smile

Foxsticks Sun 16-Mar-14 13:52:49

ooooooh a cake thread WITH pictures!!

Colacake.....a new recipe I was trying...and have made three times since, it's simple and lovely

AlpacaPicnic Sun 16-Mar-14 14:03:52

The Guinness cake doesn't taste of Guinness, it just tastes of lovely moist chocolate cake and fresh whipped cream. It was yucky - said no one ever!

AlpacaPicnic Sun 16-Mar-14 14:05:11

Ooh, that cola cake looks fab! There is no bigger disappointment than a dry chocolate cake sad

I'll try and find my cheesecake recipe...

Catsmamma Sun 16-Mar-14 14:06:16

And a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Zebra, with a black forest twist filling

I think it had ganache and more cherries on top.

Cola cake recipe

My only comment is that is it a VERY runny batter style mix, so you need to properly line your springform tin!! :D

Cheesecake recipe c+p from another thread...

Blend together a 250g tub of room temperature marscapone cheese and a cup of icing sugar until well combined. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Whip a 300ml tub of double cream until thick. If you are adding the baileys, add a good slug to the cream before whipping. Fold the whipped cream into the marscapone mixture, then fold in a large, very well chopped up toblerone. Pour onto biscuit base, smooth out the top and set in the fridge for at least four hours, but overnight is best...

I can confirm that this recipe also works very well with a chopped up half of a Terry's chocolate orange - for that version, I used chocolate digestives for the base and that was awesome...

I have also made the cheesecake topping without chocolate and instead swirled in some lemon curd, or passion fruit curd... You can play around with whatever flavours you like!
