Prepare 250 g FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake according to the instructions on the package. Grease the baking pan with the FunCakes Bake Release Spray and divide the batter over the pan. Bake the sponge cake for 30–35 minutes and then let it cool down completely on a cooling grid.
Prepare 400 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream according to the instructions on the package. Divide the buttercream over 5 different bowls.
For the filling, add to taste the strawberry flavour paste and a bit of pink food colour gel to one portion of buttercream and the mango flavour paste and yellow food colour gel to another portion of buttercream.
Cut the cake twice with the cake leveler. Cut the peaches in pieces. Fill the first layer with the mango filling and peach pieces and the second layer with the strawberry filling and peach pieces. Cover the outside of the cake with plain buttercream and let it set in the fridge for half an hour.
Then mix the fourth portion of buttercream with the pink food colour and the last one with the orange food colour. Place the cake on a turning table and apply the pink and orange buttercream randomly over the cake using a spatula. With the side scraper, now pull the cream tightly around the cake to allow the colours to nicely flow into each other, creating an ombre effect. Let it set in the fridge for half an hour again.
Mix all sprinkles together and cut all the fruit. Apply the sprinkles by hand to the edge of the cake and decorate the top with summer fruit. Place a few yellow choco balls in between the fruit.
