In Bermuda the focus of this day is on the pleasures of kite flying and tucking into warm hot cross buns and codfish cakes—served either inside the bun or solo.

The hot venue on Good Friday is Horseshoe Bay, where myriad multicoloured kites fly high in the sky. Prizes are awarded to the best in a range of categories, including the smallest, largest, most beautiful and most original. Kites are best seen above the beach—from South Shore Road—the prime vantage point that provides an almost uninterrupted aerial view.

This sample recipe is a large 8 inch (200 millimeter) round and 8 inch (200 millimeter) high cake. 

Below is the step by step method of achieving the rainbow cake presentation

Daniel Lescot says "it’s the perfect day to give this a go"
