Hello Rainbow!

Hi Guys,

Hooboy, where does the time go? Sorry I've been a little MIA lately, I've been slowly working my way through some crafty stuff, but I don't have anything I can share just yet, gotta love the super secret stuff. I wish I could say I've been more productive. Seems lately the more I have to do, the less I'm able to actually do it. I'm in the home stretch on three different projects for three special ladies so I should have something to share soon, promise.

In the meantime, I do have something that I think was so special. I know it's going back a little ways but this deserves its moment in the sun. Many months ago (I think) I may have mentioned to Jill that I'd always wanted a rainbow cake. Just in passing. That lady has the ears of a fox! The weekend after my birthday we'd made plans to go out to San Francisco to the Crown & Crumpet, which we did, it was perfect and lovely of course. But when she showed up at my house the morning we left for the city, she was carrying this...

BEHOLD!!

 Awww yeeeah!

Before we left, I had to have a piece. We took it out on the patio, it was a nice morning.

Dig those lovely colors!

This made me so happy, I can't believe she did this just for me for me!
What a pal!!

Thank you Jill, you are wonderful! Isn't she wonderful?? Yes, she is.

oxo,
Lisa

That cake is ABSOLUTELY beautiful! I love the colors...I love how they turned out a little on the pastel side. I also love how she kept is so simple on the outside with the smooth white frosting and those adorable multi colored candies on top! I just love the whole thing. I need to make one of these soon! What a wonderful thing to have a friend make you something like this! I would be overwhelmed with thanks and appreciation. I don't really have anyone in my life as far as friends and family that are crafty or bakey...so chances of this ever happening to me...no. I think that's why I love my blog friends so much because they have a passion about the same things I am interested in. I always tell my husband I wish I had one friend that was just like me. I do love my friends..but none of them is like me!

Aw geez! You are so sweet to feature the rainbow cake. I had so much fun creating it!! It's so fun to create something when you know it will be appreciated!
Hugs,
Jill

Wonderful friend indeed! Jill, what sort of food colorings did you use? I can't seem to get such beautiful color with the good ol Sauer's brand.

I've never had cake envy before. Holy cripes! ;) I bet it was delicious. I want one for my birthday! I'll have to make it for myself, though. :\

Hello Lisa,

I would call it simply "Happy-Cake".
What a surprise inside!
