Two of my kids have birthdays in April and they are only 10 days apart! This past weekend, we had their birthday party - together, so I got to make 2 cakes!
First up is Noah's cake. He is now 5! He had no idea what kind of cake he wanted... but he kept mentioning rainbows.
Isn't that neat? Noah...wanting rainbows? Anyone else see the biblical reference there? Anyway, so I dreamed up a rainbow cake for him...and here it is:
I didn't do a great job with the details, but I was totally winging it. I wish I had used thicker ribbon on the bottom, and smoothed out the trees more...and put stumps on them. Oh well.
At the last minute, Caleb (8yo) wanted to add a bicycle for Noah, so I let him do cut out a fondant bicycle with a cookie cutter and we 'glued' it on too!
The best part (in my opinion) was that Noah loved it! Oh, and it was rainbow on the inside...it just makes me smile to look at it! For complete instructions on how I made this, go to my tutorial on how to bake a rainbow cake on the inside.
Next up...Sarah's cake. She will be 7 in just a few more days. She had drawn me a picture and she wanted a bow on top and butterflies - those were her only specific requests.
She initially wanted it to be dark blue, but she told me I could make it any color I wanted, so I opted for more girly colors...
I made the 3-D bow and 2 3-D butterflies out of fondant. This was a little better than my first bow, but I still need lots of practice!
If I could just figure out how to get that corn starch off the inside of the bow after putting it together (without breaking it)....
She ended up really loving it (even though it didn't have any dark blue on it)...and I think it turned out great!
