rainbow in a cloud


Jackson wanted a rainbow themed party for his 4th birthday, so, inspired by these beautiful cakes, Chiara and I made him a rainbow cake! 

The pans we used were all different sizes and once it was all together (with considerable structural support) it looked, um, well, lumpy.  So, I decided to make it look like a cloud on the outside, keeping with the rainbow theme.

It was a little janky, but it's the imperfections that make it fun.  The best part was when Chiara cut the cake revealing the rainbow inside!


and when Jackson ate it.


Happy Birthday little guy!

Utterly fantastic! The frosting idea was a moment of pure genius. I've seen these around the web, but yours is my favorite yet! Bravo!
