Van's Birthday Cake


I have been so intrigued by the rainbow cake trend going on right now. So for Van's birthday cake, I put one together. It turned out super radtastic. If you haven't already seen a blog post on how to do a rainbow cake, click here for one. The link shows a more complicated version than the one I did. I mixed up a box-mix white cake, split it among 5 bowls without measuring and colored it. When it came to pouring it into cake pans, I just took spoonfuls and plopped it into the pan in no particular order or location. I like the messiness of the colors. It turned out just how I expected it to. Colorful, splotchy and delicious.

Thanks for the words of encouragement about the induction Whitney! I hope my labor will go as easy as yours were! I have had the weirdest abnormal fear about giving birth ever since 7th grade health! Deep breaths...deep breaths!

Hope you don't mind but I posted this on my blog- maybe you will get some linky love! I was just wondering- did you use the same frosting recipe as the one in the link?
