Taylor's Rainbow Doodle Cake
So my little girl turned 8 last week - really and truly where does the time go? In my mind, she should still be the little three-foot-tall terror chasing after her brother, trying to keep up! Now she's dangerously close to being as tall as he is (which he's not happy about at two years' her senior)! I first found the idea for this cake on Sweetapolita's blog (one of my absolute favorites!!) and Taylor just fell in love with it! Multi-colored vanilla cake layers with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream filling, covered in plain white fondant - then the fun begins! Taylor used food color markers to cover the outside of her cake however she pleased - a number "8" appeared, a sunshine, her favorite numbers, all our names - she even shared the fun with big brother :) And then when we cut the cake...wow! What a fun present was inside! Happy Birthday to my (big) little girl!
