Rainbows & Butterflies

I have another little buddy named Brady who turned FIVE today. Brady has slightly more sophisticated tastes and prefers rainbows and butterflies to cartoons. This cake was one that I've looked forward to making for a long time. My cake buddy Trish makes a beautiful rainbow cake, and when she wasn't available to make one for Brady's mom, who is a mutual friend, I was thrilled to have the chance.
This cake was TALL. I'm guessing somewhere along the lines of 9". It is frosted in vanilla buttercream.
I LOVE color. If you know me well, you know that I have a difficult time not painting every room in my house a different color. Yes, a bright green almost adorned my large two-story entry. Anywho, Brady loves color too. The cake had to be the full spectrum rainbow- ROYGBIV. Putting the butterflies on this cake was the highlight of my day. Just Beautiful!

Can I share this on my page? This cake tasted better than it looked. It is also completely gone. I have a feeling that you are going to be very busy all the time making cakes. Time to hire some helpers!

also I loved the colors and I loved the cascade of butterflies and I loved how thrilled Brady was. Someday he is going to have a little girl, name her Mandy and not be sure why he insists on the name. He'll just know that he loves Mandy.

Beautiful! It doesn't matter how many of these cakes I have made, seeing them cut into always makes me so happy! :) Just lovely, Mandy!
