A colorful cake for a colorful young lady!

I have made some pretty amazing cakes over the last 20+ years for my daughters, if I say so myself. I made an incredible haunted mansion for Halloween one year, and a 3 layer “pound cake” which my grandmother dubbed 10 ton cake because it was so heavy. However, one of the liveliest cakes I made was for Hadley this year, and I made it with her help.

White on the outside….

6 layers high…

How about this folks?

I got the recipe from Martha Stewart, and I can recommend this for a fun baking project with your little children.
