17cm shop bought round vanilla sponge cakes x3 (New World – come as two cakes in one container)
Pastel dots (ours came from The Pretty Baker)
#2 cutter (we used one from a playdough set of numbers and letters)
Raspberry jam 3/4c
1. Place one layer of sponge cake on your serving plate spread with ¼ c raspberry jam. Then spread ¼c of the easy white buttercream over the jam and place another sponge cake on top. Repeat the jam and buttercream and top with final sponge cake.
2. Use a pallet knife to spread buttercream around sides and top of the cake smoothing as you go.
use a teaspoon against the side of the cake and your finger to gently attach the sprinkles to the bottom third of the cake.
3. Place ½ c buttercream in a disposable piping bag/ziplock bag and cut the corner off. Pipe a cloud on either side of the middle top of the cake. Insert each end of a rainbow sour strap into each cloud.
