Birthday cake – a rainbow one – ended up making 12 individual layers – whew what a job! But lots of joy


Our grandson Jonah is very particular in his tastes and he requested a 7th birthday cake in the colors of the rainbow with blue frosting and M&Ms – so I made one – and then realised that it was not going to be enough for 25 kids and 15 adults so I made another one!

Here is the cake process!
