This is a bit late to post, but four months ago my daughter turned FOUR! I cannot believe that I have been a mom for four years. At four years old, we decided to make a final adjustment to her bed. We raised it up! The box spring used to be on the floor underneath the bed and the mattress was where the box spring is supposed to be. This is the almost-birthday-girl getting ready to sleep in her new bed.
Finally, it was the day of her birthday! I got started early on her cake. I like to make a special homemade cake for my family members on their birthdays. It's more meaningful and they consider it one of their gifts. When Bridget was 3, she requested a pink princess cake. This year, she wanted a rainbow cake. I wasn't sure exactly what she meant by this, whether or not she wanted rainbow layers or she wanted a rainbow drawn on top. So I did both. It was a big hit and she LOVED it! I think this was my first 100% vegan birthday cake to make.
She got to help me with some of the work. Mainly the licking of spoons and such.
The cake layers finally done baking and cooled enough to be frosted.
First layer of yummy frosting.

The final result!

This was definitely a fun cake to make. Do I want to do it again? Not really. It was a long process. But it was worth it.
