Rainbow Petal Cake {Virtual Baby Shower!}


I had a lot of fun making this cake,
because it is for a very special occasion...
a Virtual Baby Shower for the fabulous Meaghan 
from The Decorated Cookie & Edible Crafts!

Meaghan just welcomed her darling baby girl, Violet, into the family.
I'm excited to be included in a group of creative bloggers that are celebrating
with lots of RAINBOW treats!


Meaghan is seriously awesome!
First of all, she is amazingly creative. 
She's all famous and stuff (have you seen her cookbook, Sugarlicious?)
and she has been so encouraging and sweet to me!

She was one of the first bloggers to feature one of my cakes,
and I was so thrilled that she liked something I made! Little old ME!


Don't you love rainbows? I sure do!
Have you seen my Rainbow Tie Dye Cake?

To create this Rainbow Petal Cake for Meaghan
I combined one of my favorite decorating techniques with pastel rainbow colors.
I could just stare at these pretty colors all day.

Here is my palette of buttercream frosting.
I filled plastic decorating bags, then snipped off the ends.


To learn how to make this petal design (it's easier than it looks!),
go check out my tutorial here!

 
I wanted to make the inside of the cake a girly pink,
so I whipped up my favorite Strawberry Cake recipe.


Congratulations, Meaghan!

  7. This is so beautiful!

    In your tutorial you do one row then make your petals, add another row & so on...on this did you do one row on a diagonal or did you make one vertical row using all the different colors? It looks like you should be able to use one color to make the row on the diagonal to make it go a little faster?

    So so pretty.

    1. Thanks, Jenny! I did this cake in vertical rows as well, which took a while with all the colors. Your idea of doing diagonal lines is great...it probably would have saved me some time! :)
