I love celebrating birthdays! Especially when the birthday belongs to a sweet little 3-year-old. Rosie wanted a cake that was “pink and yellow and brown and green and purple and blue”, and I tried. The attempt resulted in rather uneven layers of light pink, dark pink, purple, and light green. I adapted a cake from Raspberri Cupcakes blog- her beautiful shades-of-purple cake became a four-layer rainbow cake with chocolate frosting (had to get the “brown” in it for Rosie). I just added about a 1/3 cup cocoa powder to the frosting. Please go see her blog- the cake she made is an absolute masterpiece!
Rosie liked Nana’s cake. And that was all that mattered. Is she adorable or what? They don’t come cuter than that. My son’s birthday is next- and his only cake request is “not coconut”. Hmmmm….the possibilities….
