Rainbow Cake Pops!!

About two months ago, I posted about Cake Pops, and I know I’ve mentioned them and referenced back to them time and time again whenever I have leftover cake. This is because they really are the easiest way to use up cake scraps. Or to save cupcakes that stick to the pan (or whatever baking disaster I may have…) from going straight in to the trash bin. Either way, I am in love with anything I can eat off of a stick, so cake pops have sold me!

This weekend, even though I didn’t have any sort of leftover cake, I made up some rainbow cake JUST to make these cake pops. A few weeks ago, I picked up some really neat looking candy melts made by Wilton. They’re white chocolate with little tiny flakes of color mixed in, and I’ve been waiting for a reason to use them!

These cake pops are delightful vanilla cake, dyed all the colors of the rainbow, with vanilla frosting, hidden inside a rainbow-flecked shell. They require a little more work than a traditional cake pop but are totally worth it to see the surprise rainbow cake inside! 🙂

My First Wedding Cake!!

This weekend, I had the pleasure of baking my very first wedding cake for two good friends of mine! It was a lot of work over 2 nights (first night baking, second night decorating), but seeing the looks of joy on my friends’ and their family’s faces made it all totally worth it.

The Nyan Cat Cake

So, I have this friend who is in love with the Nyan Cat. (See link here…) She has a Nyan Cat purse, a Nyan Cat camera case, and I believe the song is the ringtone on her cell phone. It’s totally adorable how much she loves this meme. The first time I met her, when we were just people with mutual friends, I remember walking away thinking, “I need to make that gal a Nyan Cat cake… When’s her birthday?!” Well, her birthday was a few weeks ago, so I finally got a chance to give her the Nyan Cat Cake! Hopefully, you can make this cake for someone else who loves the Nyan Cat even a fraction as much as my friend does… 🙂

Six-Layer Rainbow Cake

As a follow-up to the double-rainbow cupcakes, today’s post is about the six-layer rainbow cake!! I first made this as a birthday cake for a girlfriend, who loves rainbows almost as much as I do. The cake was brought to a camp-out over her birthday weekend and kept cold (and a secret!!) until Sunday afternoon. I lit the candles and presented a white-frosted cake to the birthday girl’s surprise party. But the best part was her shock when I cut in to the cake and a rainbow magically appeared! 🙂

I made the cake last week for a friend’s 30th birthday, and it went over amazingly well again!! 🙂

Double Rainbow, OMG!

As promised, my first real post is the double rainbow cupcakes! These have become a staple of mine for parties because I absolutely love the looks of wonder I get when, first, someone sees the beautiful rainbow-swirled frosting and, second, takes their first bite of the cupcake to find the internal rainbow! The look of surprise and joy makes it all worth it! 🙂

Omg, what does it mean?? (For meme reference, see here.)
