Today is my baby girls birthday! I can't believe she is 4 already. We had her party on Saturday, and she was spoiled rotten as usual. She requested a rainbow party, so I did my best to accomodate! Her birthday cakes was probably one of the easiest I've done yet, but definitely had the biggest wow factor!
I started with a basic vanilla cake recipe; this one to be exact. The original recipe yeilds 12 servings, or 1 9" cake round. For the rainbow cake, I needed more cake, so I adjusted the recipe for 36 servings. I mixed up the batter, and then divided it by weight into 6 bowls. I colored each layer a different color, and then baked--each layer took approx. 15 min.
For frosting I used the Wilton buttercreme recipe. I took the original recipe x 3, and had enough frosting for the cake, and 24 cupcakes..with a few scoops leftover!
So, enough talk, and onto some pictures!
(I also found out that hubby hasn't leveled my oven--each layer came out uneven...I tried to stack them so it would be less obvious, but the top layer blew my cover!)
The big reveal! (and my camera was set on the wrong settings :( Sorry the pics are so dark!)
Overall, I love how it came out! The cake tasted great--like a big sugar cookie--and McKenna loved seeing the rainbow!
Linking up to these parties!
