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! 🙂

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.
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… 🙂
Today’s post is the first of two that I created for St. Patrick’s Day last weekend! The first is my End of the Rainbow cupcakes. These cupcakes are wonderfully easy with a fun little surprise. Cause what do you find at the end of the rainbow?? A pot of gold, of course!! 🙂
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!! 🙂
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.)
