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….
