Joan Rainbow Cake

Hello Friends 

Herewith Merry Christmas is nearing!!!! It is story related cake. I have been This cake inspired me to bake as we had seen Malayalam  Film as SALT N PEPPER wanting to do it and the wait is over.
The same movie name has been remake in different languages..In that scene, A hero gives Juan's Rainbow cake recipe to the heroine and they tried the recipes together in different homes and been communicated over phone for recipe and experience and so on. This story behind the cake is so amazed to hear and It is all about Juan, A french lady who had waited for her hubby for his return from the 2nd world war far away from home.
 On her first day of wait, She baked a delicious Strawberry cake for him and in turn he didn't come. It is so disappointed. 
Second Day, She again baked a Pistachio cake for him and still didn't turn.It is disappointment again. She made 2 cakes joined and  covered each layer with whipped cream.
Third Day, She made orange cake and still her wait continued on and on...still he didn't come.She went to bed at the same day with  disappointment.
Next Morning, Her hubby had arrived at their home and saw his ladylove  giving a box of gifted chocolates.They felt very happy meeting after long time. She had come back to the kitchen and stacked all the 3 cakes covered with whipped cream and each layer is covered with whipped cream.
Finally she melted the chocolates and poured it over the top of the cake and topped with fruit and served a cake to her hubby. :) They ate it together of his return and their never end loving story... It is so beautiful story  and I liked it ..
