Every day is a rainbow in our household – or so my eldest daughter tells me (my opinion of this varies day-to-day). And so, part two of our birthday season was celebrated in a kaleidoscope of colours.
Here it is:
RAINBOW PINATA CAKE
This rainbow-shaped pinata cake was a hit with my daughter.
I found the recipe at Tablespoon and used the Betty Crocker pound cake recipe instead of the packet cake mixture (which is not available in my local supermarket). The cake tasted great and was easy to assemble – just avoid decorating the cake on a humid day, the fondant icing tends to melt pretty quickly.
RAINBOW CAKES IN A JAR
These were fantastic fun to make, and they look amazing (the kids enjoyed devouring them, too)!
I found the recipe at Tablespoon, but pretty much tweaked it to suit what I needed. The jars I used were around half the size, so I ended up spooning around 1tbsp of each colour in. If you fill between 1/3 and 1/2 a jar, it should allow enough room to pipe some icing on the top.
DOUBLE RAINBOW CUPCAKES
I made these for my daughter’s preschool class – they were a huge success!
I used the same cake mixture as the rainbow cakes in a jar (Betty Crocker super moist vanilla cake packet mix) and spooned around 1 tsp of each colour into the case. I topped them with excess fondant icing from the rainbow pinata cake.
The dodgy-looking clouds are piped vanilla frosting and they’re topped with rainbow sour straps.
RAINBOW PARTY BAGS
I chose pale blue paper favour bags and made my own rainbows out of coloured card stock.
DYI RAINBOW BIRTHDAY BANNER
My DIY Minnie Mouse banner was such a success I decided to try my hand at a rainbow banner too!
