Ah Summer time – school’s out, the days get longer and both my kids get a year older. Yep, both of them are summer time babies.
This year, my daughter is turning 5 (it’s an important milestone in kindergarten terms). She’s a great kid with a mind of her own, and so we asked her what kind of birthday theme did she want. After much, much, MUCH thought on what to have, she finally settled on: Cowgirl.
We live in the suburbs – she has never ridden a pony, nor seen a rodeo, but she wanted to be a cowgirl. How I love my daughter!
So right away, I got to work on her cake. But first my daughter pulled me aside and instead of chocolate or vanilla, she asked for a rainbow.
So I baked up 6 layers of white cake, each coloured in different segments of the rainbow: purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red.
Stacked each in that order and decorated the cake in a simple cowgirl theme.
I particularly loved the handkerchief detail.
When it was time to cut the cake, I honestly held my breath as I cut out a slice and slide it onto the plate. Every little girl screamed with delight (I’m really not exaggerating – a small group of 4 and 5 years olds screamed) when then saw the “rainbow” inside.
All in all, it was a great birthday party for my little girl. She had a blast…. now onto my son’s 3rd birthday party next month. Stay tuned.
