Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 1/3 cups self rising flour
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • food coloring (green, red, yellow and blue)
  • 2 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons extract (vanilla bean)
  • 1/2 pound coated chocolates (red candy-)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and line 4 - 8 inch round cake pans with parchment paper.
  2. Cream 1 cup + 2 tbsp butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour and 1/2 cup buttermilk. Mix until just combined. Divide between 4 bowls. Color each bowl with 12 drops of food coloring, respectively. Transfer to prepared pans and bake for 20-25 mins, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in pans for 5 mins then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. For frosting, cream remaining butter until pale and creamy. Add sifted powdered sugar and vanilla. Add remaining buttermilk and mix until just combined.
  4. To assemble, layer green, pink, yellow and blue cakes on top of one another, spreading with 1/2 cup frosting between each layer. Coat sides and top of cake with frosting. Decorate with chocolates. Serve.
