Here is the other cake I made, using the pop cake tin, I love all the colours, it's so bright and cheerful!
(Oh and I checked online, both Lakeland and John Lewis have the cake tins for sale £16.99.)
I made the cake with the same recipe as my Red Nose Cake, but divided the mixture up into small bowls and then used six colours to reflect the rainbow! (I know it should have been seven, but I find that Blue, Indigo and Violet do tend to run into each other, and therefore it is simpler to use 6 colours.)
Again I think for real impact three layers and double the number of round cake pops would be better.
I will be using a cake like this for my daughter's St Patrick's Day cake (you can see last year's rainbow cake complete with gold and leprechaun here). My daughter is quite insistent that we make a Leprechaun Trap again, and I think she loves the idea that her friends will be expecting a rainbow cake, and will therefore be really surprised with a Rainbow Pop Cake.
I am thinking about other uses for these Pop Cakes, I could do all green next year for St Patrick's Day, perhaps? Maybe a space cake or a balloon cake? Do you have any ideas? I would really love to hear your suggestions.

|I keep thinking of all the things I can do with these|
a balloon cake or space cake both spring to mind
What would you suggest?
