Rainbow Birthday Cake

My youngest turned 3 on Saturday.  My how time flies!  She wanted a rainbow cake for her birthday.  I was pretty sure I could handle it, but I should have known with pregnancy hormones raging I was in for some trouble. 😉  I pushed through, though and made this:

No matter how you slice it, it’s one BIG piece of cake.  Two cake mixes and three cans of frosting later we had a rainbow cake fit for a princess. 🙂  She loved it, and I thought it was funny how colorful even the crumbs were. 😉
I am so grateful for 3 year olds and how easy they are to please.  She had a wonderful birthday.

    O, and cute cake!
