6 Flavour Rainbow Hearts Chiffon Cake (Updated flavours/natural colours) with Video tutorial


I first made this 6-Flavour Rainbow Hearts Chiffon Cake a while ago for my hubby. It’s a special chiffon cake with 6 flavours embedded into the cake (and also a heart in every one)! :) It all started because I was asking my hubby which flavour he would like the chiffon, he replied many flavours and this is the result of my wacky experiment! It was a really fun cake for my hubby and he enjoyed the many flavours in the horizontal slice.

This is my second attempt at the cake half a year later, with better skill and oven control! As requested, I replaced the azuki chiffon with strawberry chiffon cake, and matcha chiffon with pandan chiffon cake. I also increased the number of eggs in the recipe so as to obtain a taller cake. The different sectors are flavoured according to their natural colours: Red (strawberry), Orange (orange), Yellow (lemon), Green (pandan), Blue (blue pea flowers), Purple (blueberry). It’s a pretty time-consuming bake but a happy labour of love =).

Recipe with picture tutorials now in Creative Baking: Chiffon Cakes. Now out at all major bookstores!

Also available on AmazonBook Depository and Kinokuniya online.


This is my humble first video tutorial with a flip through of the Creative baking: Chiffon Cakes book. Hope you will enjoy this labour of love! My hubby helped me a lot with this video, so thanks to him!


With lots of love,
Susanne

      Hi Susan,

      Thanks for this lovely recipe - I just have a quick question: I am not able to buy pandan, orange and strawberry paste where I live. Therefore, can I replace these paste items with Wilton food colouring? I notice that they come to about 6g puree + 1g paste, will the change in weight make a difference?
