As my sweet niece Lucy's 2nd birthday approached, my sister and I started talking cake ideas. When she mentioned 'maybe something with rainbows?', I jumped on it. I've been wanting to do a rainbow cake for a while now, and was excited to have the chance to finally do it! Since the birthday girl had 2 birthday parties, we went for some fun rainbow cupcakes for the family party. I just loved how it all turned out--I think it was one of my favorite cakes to date. Bright, cheerful and happy... just like the birthday girl!

with marshmallow clouds!
Love this picture...rainbow themes are the best--so many options for bright, colorful candy and decorations! We found some cute colorful napkins, plates, and striped straws at Target that were perfect.
And my favorite part...the rainbow reveal inside! Love the bright rainbow layers.
