Make Mother's Day memorable with this showstopping multi-layered, multi-coloured cake. Mum is sure to be impressed with four tiers of light, beautifully coloured sponge, and sweet cream cheese icing. Don't be daunted by the size of this cake, it will keep for three days if covered. See method

Tip: To get the cakes in even layers, you may need to trim the tops slightly if they rise unevenly during baking.
Freezing and defrosting guidelines
Bake according to the recipe but stop before adding decoration or icing if called for. Allow to cool completely. Wrap well in clingfilm and tin foil (to prevent freezer burn) and freeze for up to 3 months.
Loosen the tin foil and clingfilm but leave to defrost in packaging at room temperature for several hours before serving. If you wish to serve the baked goods warm, place them on a baking sheet for 10 minutes in a moderate oven.
If you wish to add icing or decoration, add them after the baked goods have fully defrosted and are at room temperature.
