Lizzy is obsessed amongst My Little Pony (thanks to her large sister) as well as asked for a Rainbow Dash birthday party. I decided to loosen that a footling into a rainbow party, as well as it was the perfect excuse to brand that gorgeous rainbow cake I’ve seen floating roughly Pinterest. I’m non going to lieā€¦ it took some fourth dimension to make. I entirely had two 8-inch cake pans, hence I had to bake the layers inwards 3 batches, which was a footling fourth dimension consuming. Other than that, though, it was all pretty slowly to seat together!

To decorate, I only slathered some buttercream (very imperfectly, I mightiness add) on the exterior as well as hence topped the cake amongst some rainbow sprinkles I constitute at my local political party store. I constitute these cute twisty candles at that topographic point every bit well, as well as the large give away 3 is from Target.

As cute every bit the exterior is, the within is what makes this cake magical! I was nervous until I cutting into it that somehow it wouldn’t function or wouldn’t await pretty, but it ended upwards existence absolutely perfect. I was hence impressed amongst myself that I kept giggling for joy piece cutting the cake.
