The cake came together after hours of work the night before and then again in the morning, a 6 layered rainbow cake with handmade fabric mini bunting for the top and a spotty number '2' candle.
Each layer had to be baked individually as silly old me only had the one round cake pan the right size! So each layer, divided out at 1 & 1/2 cups mixture each and added with their chosen colour were baked for approximately 20 mins one at a time. Then they were all cooled (on the ONE cooling rack i had!!!) and prepared for getting iced with the butter cream icing that my mother and i slaved over to make perfect!! All this sounds simple enough, yet the man power and time put into this cake were phenomenal!!
Butter cream icing was made and so the stacking began, layer ~ icing ~ layer ~ icing ~ layer ~ icing and so on - until we get to the top layer and realise we have run out of icing!!
At this stage it's 1am and my eyes are being held open by toothpicks, so i decide its time for bed and will finish the rest in the morning!!
The below is the end result:
