Butterfly Cake

Last weekend we created a cake for a special Sweet Sixteen birthday. Such a milestone birthday definitely deserves a spectacular cake to mark the occasion. The birthday girl picked one of our favourites cakes ever – our Rainbow Butterfly Cake!  I truly loved making this cake, it’s just such a pretty and happy cake and never fails to bring a smile to my face.

The cake is a riot of colour with hues from the whole rainbow spectrum!  The butterflies are just so pretty with their delicate wings caught in mid-flutter as they rest on the cake.  The whole cake is edible as the butterflies are made of vanilla flavoured rice-paper.

One bonus of having a two-tier cake is not only does it provide extra drama and height (and of course more yummy cake!), you can pick multiple flavours too!  This particular cake had  a bottom tier of red velvet cake with tangy lemon buttercream and a top tier of vanilla cake with with strawberry buttercream.

Here are a couple more pics of the cake.  Enjoy!

Rainbow Party

Today we are honoured to be showcasing a party by my incredibly talented friend, Aimee, who created a wonderfully colourful Rainbow Party for her son’s birthday.  Take a look at these glorious jelly cups – I just adore vibrant colours, the multicoloured sprinkle rims and the super cute paper umbrellas.

And what party could be complete without cake and lots of it!  Check out these psychedelic cupcakes that Aimee made.  Not only is the cake multi-hued but frosting  is as well!  Genius.  And Aimee has decorated the edges of the cupcake stand so that it is co-ordinated with the colourful theme.

And last but definitely not least, I want to show you these layered marshmallows that she made.  They are yet another super-creative way to incorporate the theme of the party.  And who could resist such a fun treat!

As Aimee says “I don’t want to see food colour again for a LONG time”.  That might be the case Aimee, but thanks for sharing all your hard work and your beautiful party with us!

Now quite separately from Aimee, I had put together some rainbow party ideas on Pinterest.  I don’t think she knew that I was working on this and I didn’t know she was working on her party!  Clearly great minds think alike.  If you would like some other rainbow ideas, do check out my Rainbow Party board.
