Pots and pans are second nature to me. Cooking has always been easy, with an epic caveat. I can NOT bake. Invoke science and technique all I want, it just does not work out for me. Ever. So when Karen’s 30th birthday approached I made the poor, passion fueled decision to bake her a cake. Nope, not any cake, a rainbow cake. Following this brilliant post, and using my bread guru’s yellow cake recipe, I mixed different combinations of red, green and blue fondant dyes with batter.

Baked it, frosted it, cut it and… RAINBOW CAKE! If you haven’t heard, ROY G. BIV is going by RY G. BIP (P for poo) these days.

Happy birthday my love.
