Birthday cakes come in all sizes, colors and shapes. My granddaughter wanted this Rainbow Explosion Cake after seeing the signature confection made by The Flour Shop in New York.
So Lisa, her mother, decided to make one herself from an online recipe. She modified it slightly, using her favorite cake recipe and butter cream icing rather than the called for cream cheese icing. Addie requested that the sides be left un-iced. Good idea! It leaves the colors visible even before the cake is cut.
The cake layers look like a Pantone color chart.
Lisa arranges wildflowers for the birthday table.
During these fat-fearing, sugar-scary times, it’s best not to eat such a confection too often. But you’re only ten once. 🙂
