The coolest birthday cake ever! When I spotted this beauty from Jennifer at VintageSugarCube.com--I begged her to share and she graciously offered her rainbowlicious recipe as a guest post....Someone is turning 1? A party, a cake, and a pony is definitely called for. Well, maybe a pony isn't necessary, but grandma and grandpa will definitely be expecting you to whip up a special cake de jour for the little crumbsnatcher. Since sparkling candles and naked dolls are clearly not an appropriate decorating option, I have an idea for you. How about a beautiful 6-layer rainbow cake topped with a mega mound of cotton candy? I promise it will be much easier than finding that pony.
6 Layer Cotton Candy Cake
* 3 boxes of white cake mix
* 1 1/2 cups of sour cream (don'??t even think of buying the low-fat)
* 9 eggs (room temp), sit them in a bowl of hot water for 5 min
* 1 cup of oil
* 3 cups of whole milk (i didn'??t say skim!)
* McCormick NEON Food Colors
* 1 large bag of cotton candy
Directions:Mix all the above in a ginormous bowl and then divide into 6 individuals bowls. Use the back of the food color box to come up with some wild colors of your own. Pour into 6 round cake pans that have been greased and floured and bake 2 at a time at 350 degrees for 30min. Frost with a buttercream frosting of your choice and now comes the fun part. Top with that cotton candy! We're all kids at heart.
