I made a rainbow cake for Miss B's Rainbow-Unicorn-Mustache-Taco Birthday Party.
For the banner on top of the cake: I colored white Thickers with an ink pad.
For the cake:
I used 2 White Cake box mixes.
I made one box at a time, followed the instructions right on the box.
I divided the batter out 3 ways for each box. Then I added the food color.
Use Food Color gel. I wanted more of a neon color, so one bottle of color was all I used.
If you want your cake to be red-red, you will need to use more than one tube.
Make sure that you also keep some red color for orange and purple.
I LOVE my buttercream frosting. I doubled the recipe on this one and it was not enough.
1 stick of butter, room temperature
3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
3-4 tablespoons of milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
(Use real butter, use real vanilla)
Put your butter in a bowl and beat it until it is fluffy.
Then add everything else, beat on low for a minute then on med for another minute.
This is my go-to frosting.
We use it on cakes, cookies...everything!
It is versatile too...add lemon, mint, cinnamon...you can add anything to it!
I wanted to get the girls some kind of trough for their popcorn.
I found these rainbow buckets and added a tag to the front with their name.
This way I knew who was making the most mess.
The girls called them Mexican robot astronauts.
They have mustaches. They are super cute.
The girls jumped on the trampoline in the rain.
We went to the mall for a scavenger hunt and the girls assaulted the Easter Bunny.
He didn't seem to mind. I posted the pictures on my Facebook.
Since all the girls aren't mine, I probably shouldn't post them on a public blog.
A good time was had by all, including me.
Here is the banner in all it's rainbow-mustached goodness:
