Pastel Layered Rainbow Cake

2012 FLEW BY so fast, before you know it Spring will be here, which is why I wanted to share this post with y’all again. This is an old post from Alie’s 3rd birthday. I made her this pastel layered rainbow cake. Besides being a wonderful birthday cake it’s also perfect for Spring and Easter.

For Alie’s cake I decided to do a layered rainbow cake in colors that matched her party!  If you buy the Walmart brand of food color it comes with a “how to” chart on the back.  SO helpful!
I only did 4 layers and although I really like how it turned out, I think for the next one I would like more layers and thinner layers too. 
 I frosted it with whipped white frosting.  I used a little bit of the frosting to make some polka dots for her cake.  I didn’t notice at the time but my cake carrier has a small lip inside that the handle fits into.  The frosting on the cake stuck to it. 🙁
I made garland to go onto of the cake.  It’s tiny tissue paper pom poms!  They are so cute and fun to make! Tutorial HERE!


The cake with some of the decorations! Tutorials HERE!! and HERE!!🙂
Alie LOVED her cake!! 🙂


AND…..this is what it looked like on the inside! 



It was a wonderful birthday for my sweet Alie Marie!
Thanks for stopping by!
