A Rainbow Cake for Karilyn's Birthday

Happy Birthday Karilyn!

My little girl turns 5 tomorrow! We celebrated her birthday yesterday with a rainbow cake. Her Grandmas, Grandpas, and Uncle Joe came to celebrate with us. We had a lot of fun. We got Jimmy Johns subs and I made beans and soup, but the cake was the highlight of the party.
It was six layers tall!
In rainbow colors!
I borrowed 4 cake pans, doubled my favorite yellow cake recipe, divided it up and colored them all. Then after baking we iced it.

We had so much fun making this cake.

Geez louise, what's with all the over achievers in the family????

Strive for mediocrity, it helps the rest of us loser moms feel better.

Gorgeous cake!

P.S. I think this is possibly the coolest cake I have ever seen. Will you make my birthday cake?!

Yeah, will you make my birthday cake? We can make it early, this weekend! ;-) I also can't believe she's five. How nuts! No longer a baby!

Love the cake and the pics. Give Karilyn a happy birthday hug from Aunt Valli!
