Create the effect of melting crayons on the side of a cake using colorful white chocolate ganache. This Melting Rainbow Cake blends all the colors of the rainbow in a sweet dessert.
Have you seen all of the fun projects all over Pinterest using melting crayons? They are so popular right now that the folks at Tablespoon.com asked me to create a cake using the melting crayon technique.
After making my Rainbow Tie-Dye Surprise Cake, I fell in love with the long loaf style cake and thought it was the perfect canvas on which to create this colorful rainbow cake.
At first, I was going to melt colored frosting to drip down the sides of the cake but was inspired by Shelly at Cookies & Cups, who made a Melted Rainbow Cake using white chocolate ganache. I think ganache elevates the flavor of a cake, so I thought I'd give it a try.
Melting Rainbow Cake
It worked great.
The long cake really allowed all the bright colors to show up well.

The inside of the cake is loaded with rainbow chips so the cake is colorful inside and out. It's not quite as exciting inside as the Tie-Dye Surprise Cake though. Someday, I'll have to combine the two together to make a really colorful cake.
