My little one is turning 5 – being such a milestone we celebrated with colour and magic. There is nothing like a rainbow to make you happy so my daughter wanted to have a rainbow cake for the party. We found a couple in cake books and there began the seed of an idea for her rainbow birthday. As with rainbows come magic and we found a lovely fairy called Briar from Happily Ever Laughter who did some magic and bought some animal friends. We had a small collection of friends and Miss Briar even bought this rainbow parachute so the kids could play some games in and out and on top of the rainbow, of course!

Oh and the face painting was so much fun with the kids enjoying the character that Miss Briar drew on their faces.
The rainbow birthday cake – the magic was inside!

The magic inside the cake
This cake was from the Not Quite Nigella website where she did the top layer of the cake just perfectly – the bottom layer of the cake was a bit of an experiment! And the cake was a whole wheat vanilla pound cake with sour cream and lemon frosting – yum!
