I’ve been dying to share this cake with you for a few weeks, but I was determined to post them in the order that I made them and I
was am still waaaay behind! But anyway… I finally caught up to this cake! I’ve told you before that I love all things rainbow and I loved the idea of rainbows combined with the chevron pattern.
I attempted to use this chevron tutorial from Jessicakes for the pattern (although it didn’t work nearly as well for me) but I ended up using a tiny square cookie cutter to cut the pattern (thanks to a suggestion from my husband – yay for creative hubbys!) and finally got it done!
And for the bunting… those are shish kabob (or kebab?) skewers, bakers twine… and guess what for the flags? Bright/Bold Post It Notes! They come in so many bright colors these days… they perfectly matched the other rainbow colors!
I also did a small matching smash cake. She wanted it really simple and not too much fondant, so I did 3 stripes for it on top of vanilla buttercream.
Overall… I was in love with this cake!! It was just so bright and happy and colorful and fun!! Dontcha think?
This cake was (3) 9″ layers of vanilla cake on the bottom and (2) 6″ layers of strawberry cake on top. Both were filled with vanilla frosting and the decorations were homemade marshmallow fondant. This post is linked up at Creative Thursday!
