    Split the mixture between 3 x 7” greased and base lined sandwich tins.

    Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until springy to the touch and a skewer when inserted in the centre comes away clean. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.

    Dip the toothbrush in a little water and shake off the excess. Add a drop of gel food colour to the brush and flick the bristles to splatter the cake – aim for the base at the side of the cake. Work around the cake using the colours of the rainbow from red to purple washing the brush in between colours.
