Ruby’s rainbow cake

rainbow birthday party

For Ruby’s 5th birthday she told me she would like a rainbow birthday party.

So we sent out rainbow invitations, set up a rainbow treasure hunt and her dad made a beautiful rainbow birthday cake.

The rainbow birthday cake was super impressive. It really was beautiful.

And the surprise is when you cut it to find the rainbow colours.

Jason said it was also easy to make (he covered the outside in whipped cream and smarties, instead of icing).

He is our birthday cake maker. He likes to make impressive and beautiful cakes for us.

So it has become a birthday tradition. That dad bakes the cakes.

And I love that this shows the children that we can all bake. We can all be part of the party preparations.

Pretty special I reckon.

Jason has baked all kinds of birthday cakes… a ladybug, dinosaur (check out the teeth!), teddy bear, a super impressive pinata cake, treasure island cake, Peter Pan on Wendy’s roof and a castle cake!

    Gorgeous cake!
    You are so lucky to have a cake baker in the family… neither my husband or I are very good at cakes, we both have other skills in the kitchen, but sadly cakes re not one of them!

      We are lucky that Jas likes baking. I bake, but not impressive cakes, basic tasty ones is all 🙂

    I love the cake. I tried to do a 7 tier rainbow cake at 36 weeks pregnant…then a friend bumped it just before serving…

      Oh no! That is very sad because some effort goes into making a cake like this!
