The Birthday

So, MiddleMiss turned 7 on Sunday.

J told her that I hadn't really had time to make a fancy cake so hopefully she wouldn't be disappointed as she was just going to have a plain round cake.

She was impressed with the pink glittery sprinkles and fancy squiggly candles and said she liked it anyway.

Then J cut her a piece and she was even more impressed that it was a Rainbow cake!

 It was loads of fun to make and even tasted good too!

Idea from here.  Recipe and instructions from here.  Other creative types over here.


Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.


  1. That is beautiful!!! I have been wanting to make a rainbow cake like this, maybe next year...

  2. Oh yum! Looks delicious and now I am craving cake for morning tea!

  3. Happy Birthday! Oh I bet her expression was priceless! I can't think of a little girl that wouldn't swoon at the sight of a rainbow cake. We have a birthday fast approaching here.. the pressure is on. ; )

  4. Gorgeous! Love these Rainbow Cakes at the moment.

  5. I am ABSOLUTELY impressed.
    Pop on over to my place to see why.


  6. Good on you for keeping the secret! THAT'S how it should be done!

  7. I love the rainbow cake idea - yet to give it a go myself, but this has definitely inspired me. Lovely!

  8. Oooh! I've seen this cake on pinterest! My daughter turns 11 on the 16th and I've promised her a purple and pink cake with the same idea. Yours looks fantastic! I hope mine turns out!!!

  9. wow! I thought you just commented to me that you were lazy! I don't think so! Jen
