My oldest wanted to go to a theme park for a day instead of having a birthday party. Easy enough for mom! But we still had to do the traditional birthday dinner and cake at home. And a girl as cool as this needs a cool cake! Sidenote: I just love this girl, and I’m so proud of who she is!

You can see my buttercream was a little thick. I was so busy trying to smooth it out, you know, since I broke up with fondant and couldn’t use it. By the way, I appreciate all of your comments and sympathizing with my break-up. Apparently I’m not alone. So anyway, back to the butter cream…I used too much, but didn’t realize it until I cut into it. But seriously, the birthday girl eats her cake like this anyway…
So here’s how it went down:
I started with 2 white cake mixes. (I know sometimes I’m a foodie snob, but sometimes I just want it to be fast. Call me fickle.) I divided and dyed. I wasn’t really happy with my shade of green, but… “you win some, you lose some.” Oh well.
Then little miss birthday girl, helped me pour the batter. I think that how you pour it, has a lot to do with
how it looks in the end. You can decide if you want to pour in small or large amounts of color.
You also get a happy “birthday girl!” Which is even better than a tie-dyed cake!
