Made for an Amnesty International bake sale, at which this cake was the raffle prize. The cake resembles the logo of Amnesty, a candle in a spiral of barbed wire.
This was the amazing turning point in my life where I gained food colouring paste as opposed to liquid colouring, hence the vibrance of the rainbow colours. I also miraculously made this wonderful meringue buttercream icing, which I have never successfully made since (finicky egg whites...).
