On Wednesday it was my daughter Kelli’s birthday. Georgia, her daughter, was all convincing that a cake HAD to be made if it was her mommy’s birthday. Kelli decided to “help” Georgia make a cake.
She turned to the Papa Moo book I made. We make crazy cake here at our house and we always make it in a Bundt cake pan.
I printed out the recipe in the Papa Moo book I made for all of the grandkids. You all can find the recipe HERE.
If you want to see the book I made for the grandkids, you can see it HERE.
Georgia was …
all smiles today while she was making the cake. She was determined that she wanted to make a rainbow cake…Kelli wasn’t quite sure how to make that happen.
Here Georgie is showing you the pan all sprayed and floured ready for the batter. WOW…I’m impressed with how good she is doing with picture-taking. That’s not her typical self.
Her brothers were napping so Georgie got the spoon…
…and the beaters too!!
What a chocolatey mess!!
The cake cooled and then it was time for the rainbow frosting. Kelli ended up making a batch of frosting, putting that on the cake, and then took a small amount of leftover frosting, thinned it with milk, and added food coloring.
Here Georgie and Eli are decorating it for rainbows.
Kelli apologized a couple of times over because she didn’t have a picture of the kids putting sprinkles on it because they did that too.
She said she couldn’t figure out how to let them put sprinkles on and take a picture. They would have put sprinkles EVERYWHERE!!
I hope that cake was more delicious than it looked…I’m sure the kids thought it was beautiful looking and in the end, that’s all that matters right??
One of the little girls at childcare had a birthday a day before Kelli’s. I also make the same cake recipe…and I improvised with it too. I however just made a peanut butter frosting for it instead. No rainbows and sprinkles at my house. I think only one cake Kelli’s cake is enough.
Thanks for sharing the pictures Kelli!!
