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

This cake and its recipe has been featured on Straits Times in Feb 2016!

    1. Vanilla or orange. Most rainbow recipes use them cos they are light-colored. Thanks!

      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?
