Or did I leave out the bacon? I said there was a surprise in it! :)
Ok ok, no bacon. I did manage to take a couple shots after the first cut.
The chocolate coating was a big hit! Everyone thought the semi-sweetness balanced out the super-sweetness of the cake :) There were a lot of "oohs" and "ahhs" when the rainbows were revealed! In case you're wondering about the "boring" teal layer at the bottom... this is the first cake I've baked at this home. We're 2km above sea level here and I was SHOCKED at how much it crowned! It was originally going to be just 2 layers, but once I cut off the crowns, the layers were too thin so I baked a 3rd layer this morning. I didn't have the time to do another rainbow layer so instead I used another colour alltogether.
I was my biggest critic. After finishing one slice, I really thought it was too salty - which, as my wife pointed out, is strange because I add salt to salt! I put salt in EVERYTHING. Everyone thought I was crazy (or they were just being nice) because they said it was all very good.

No, they are hand-made, but I will reveal my source if you promise to keep a secret
