My littlest niece turned 4 this month!
It was actually a very easy consult with the only initial idea from her being "pink".
What kind of cake do you want? "Pink"
Sweetie, I'll need a little more than just pink to work with. Is there anything else you want?
After a little bit of coercion, her mom and I were able to get out butterflies, ladybugs and a heart on a square. Progress. Oh, and a rainbow cake.
Well... I wasn't focused when I was baking her cake and completely forgot about the rainbow part. Uh oh. For someone who asks so little, it seems important to get what is requested right. I felt awful.
Then I was blessed with the thought of this tutorial I had been wanting to try out. This is the link to another one similar in nature. I thought - why not? Give a rainbow a shot. It worked out really well in my mind. And my husband was reluctant, but so extremely helpful in putting to together. It was a little nerve racking because you never know the end result until you actually cut the cake.
At the party.
With the guess of honor sitting right there watching you.
