rainbows are for birthday girls

2014, Family and Friends, February, Food

i mentioned in my sacred gifts post that i was in provo visiting my bff ema and her husband besmir. well it also happened to be ema’s birthday the day before so i decided to make her a birthday cake.

i wanted something fabulous, fun and one of a kind {not to be cheesy but that is ema all over!}.

then i thought, rainbows are for birthday girls.

ok i didn’t really, but a couple of years ago i made a rainbow birthday cake for one of my friends and bless her she liked it but it looked like a bit of a disaster **note — there is no photographic evidence**

so naturally i wanted to try it again!

i started with 2 boxes of cake mix and food coloring.

got mixing and went from this:


to this:


it was so much fun!

baked for about 15mins – making sure i didn’t over cook them {as i usually do!}.

then stacked the cakes and used a medium sized bowl to cut around the edges so it would be round…and when i say ‘i’, i mean my roommate as you can see from this pic!


and voila!


i had used two cans of vanilla frosting, one for the layers and one to cover the cake. my genius roommate korinne then decorated the cake with ema’s favorite flower.


it was definitely an adventure getting this cute thing down to provo in a car, but there wasn’t too much damage by the time i got there and it was delicious!

i know i’m not a professional baker of any sort but it was fun, i think it turned out ok and ema loved it {most important right?!}.

happy friday and hope you have a wonderful weekend!
