Joan's cake/ Rainbow cake

Every time I make the cakes my heart will jump like a small girl with excitement........Smiley I enjoy a lot when the cake rises up.This cake is a very special cake for me becoz it was on my wishlist for over a year.But I haven't tried it as it needs lots of ingredients.........When swathi from zesty kitchen and julie suggested this recipe for baking partners I decided to try it out.

No Idea which cake I'm taking about Smiley It is a rainbow cake but not a regular one.We have to use fresh fruits and nuts to attain its colour.It is nothing but JOAN"S RAINBOW CAKE....Yummy delicious cake with lots of flavours inside.........You can make it as 2 days plan.First day prepare the cakes and do icing on the next day............
