But it's mission impossible with air dry clay, specifically air dry resin clay. Resin clay is very soft and can't be sliced properly. When it turns hard upon drying, it is already too late to do any texturing to the sliced area of the cake. Yet, I didn't turn to polymer clay (I'm too poor to afford an oven). I could only STARE in admiration at other artisans who made rainbow cakes. O_O
Finally, my dream came true! I made my very own rainbow cake using Hearty paper clay. For those of you who have been reading my posts faithfully, you'd know that I've been experimenting a lot with Hearty recently. I'm loving it more and more. It was however not possible to do the very crumbly texture like polymer clay but you do get a rather realistic mousse-like cake texture.
How do you like the result? I'm happy! It's my first step towards more layered cakes. I'm not selling this one though as I'm not perfectly satisfied with the frosting yet.
Then again, would you prefer a rainbow cake with mousse-like cake texture or a crumbly texture? Would you also be interested in a rainbow cake tutorial using air dry clay instead of the usual polymer clay that almost everyone is using? I would love to hear from you!

Goodnight and have a colorful weekend! ^_^
