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.

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!
