Step 1: Preparing the Dry Ingredients

Begin your baking adventure by whisking together all the dry ingredients - flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt - in a large mixing bowl. This step ensures that your cake's foundation is perfectly mixed, guaranteeing a uniform structure and flavor.
Pro Tip: Sift your dry ingredients for an even lighter cake texture.

Step 2: Adding Wet Ingredients

Now, introduce the wet ingredients into the bowl - milk, vegetable oil, almond extract, eggs, and cream. Beat everything together for 2 minutes. This mixing integrates air into your batter, making your cake rise beautifully and ensuring a fluffy texture.
Pro Tip: Make sure all your wet ingredients are at room temperature to ensure an even mix.

Step 3: Coloring and Baking

Divide your batter into separate bowls, adding different food colorings to each to create your rainbow layers. Pour them into greased and floured cake pans, filling a little over half full. Gently tap the pans to release any air bubbles. Bake in a preheated 325°F oven. Since baking times vary by pan size and depth, keep an eye on your cake and test for doneness using a toothpick.
Pro Tip: Use gel food coloring for vibrant colors without altering the batter's consistency.

Step 4: Assembling the Cake

Once each layer is baked and cooled, assemble your cake by stacking the layers with a thin spread of frosting between each. This not only adds to the taste but also keeps the layers moist and in place. Cover the entire cake with a final layer of frosting, and for a finishing touch, sprinkle sliced almonds on top.
Pro Tip: Chill each layer before assembling to prevent the cake from shifting.
