rainbow cake, special girl

so G wanted a rainbow cake for her birthday party, and it was so fun to make. we got the idea from here and here. it was super fun to make, and the kidlets even helped.
a few tips:
*we made butter cream frosting instead of whipped cream frosting because we think butter is better :0)
*use gel colors because they are more vibrant
*if you use vanilla, use clear vanilla or it will tint your frosting (thanks marie!)
*bake each layer for only 10-12 min.

I LOVE the cake! Don't be suprised if Em's next birthday cake strangely resembles G's! Can't believe she is already 5, I remember visiting you in the hospital after she was born!
