Perfect for Pride, this almond cake has a subtle rainbow decorative element. Made by food blogger Molly from My Name is Yeh, the dessert was originally created for Valentine's Day. However, the painted stripes and lack of any overtly red or pink coloring make it ideal for celebrating love of all stripes and colors any time of the year.

The layered almond cake features frosting made out of whipping cream, powdered sugar and almond extract. Of course, you can decorate it as you desire, using edible watercolor paints. Molly discovered that the technique she used paired with the whipped cream frosting was very fussy, so she suggests trying either a buttercream frosting instead or using a different technique for painting.
