Youtube Tutorial: Rainbow Buttercream Streak Cake!

Time for our next Youtube tutorial! How to make an easy rainbow buttercream streak cake! There are lots of different way you can do this, but the emphasis here is on it being easy and quick. For this we thought  simply adding buttercream colours and using a palette knife would work wonders! It’s also perfect for beginners to try out. Plus if you’re advanced, but need a quick cake idea this is pretty cool!

Adding matching sprinkles, sweets and chocolates along your coloured buttercream is a fun way to add more texture and decoration! We used the new Unicolour Collection by Happy Sprinkles. You can even score 10% off your order at Happy Sprinkles (and The Cake Decorating Company if you’re in the UK) with our discount code HAPPYJUNIPER10 (cannot be used with another discount)!

Now let’s look at the finished cake! It’s such a playful look that all it needed on top were some bright macarons, a topper (from Prim and Topper – 10% discount with JUNIPER10) and a cute palm spear by Mamie Peaches!

One of the best things about this buttercream streak tutorial is that you can opt for any colours you like! You can match different themes or events like greens and browns for a jungle theme etc. You can also change the texture of your streaks. Just chill once applied and streaked then use serrated knifes, spatulas or pastry brushes to work into the chilled buttercream!

Youtube Tutorial: How to Make Rainbow Swirl Cupcakes!

Rainbow swirl cupcakes!

If you follow us on social media you mat have spotted our Rainbow Swirl Cupcakes tutorial doing the rounds; especially on Youtube. We’ve been absent from Youtube for a couple of years, BUT it’s one of our 2022 goals / resolutions be more present on the platform! For a little while now we’ve been sharing fun Shorts, which has gotten addictive (you can watch them all via our Shorts playlist here by the way). Now it’s time for us to share our first video for 2 years! We take you through a quick, easy and straight forward tutorial on how to make rainbow swirl cupcakes. There’s also not only one method for this look, but two!

The great thing about rainbow swirls is that they can include any colour palette you want. Not into bright or pastel rainbows? Swap each colour for different neutrals for a super modern and grown-up look. Or go monochrome with shades of the same colour! You can even use less colours too to match your favourite theme.

Rainbows and pastels are always popular so this quick tutorial is going to come in handy! They’re perfect for bright spring or summer cupcakes full of sweet treats and unicorns. Our Youtube tutorial features two easy methods. One is a little more time consuming and the other is quick and creates less waste, but we take you through both so you can figure out which method you feel more at ease with.

We use one of the methods featured to add colour to our cupcakes all the time. If you need a little inspiration you can always check out our Instagram!

What Colour Mill colours do we use?

We always try to list what colours etc we use on our cakes and treats via our Instagram. If you see something you like why not scroll through? If in doubt, however, our most used are ‘Candy’ (a fun bubblegum pink), ‘Tiffany’ (an uplifting turquoise), and ‘Hot Pink’ (a bright and vibrant intense pink)! For the images in our blog post we have included the colours we used too to make life a little easier.

For the fun cupcakes above we used ‘Yellow’. We love the slightly warm, buttercup tone it creates. We also used ‘Candy’ and ‘Tiffany’ for the other buttercream colours. The miniature chocolate bars utilise ‘Purple’.

We used Colour Mill’s ‘Raspberry’ for the main part of this cakesicle which creates a bright and intense shade of pink. Use less to get a slightly dusky pink look. For the mini chocolate bar in this shot we used ‘Candy’, but it was dusted with ‘Sorbet’ lustre by Faye Cahill which has given it a soft coral tone.

Some of our favourites are in this buttercream swirl! ‘Candy’, ‘Tiffany’ and ‘Purple’!
