lindsey turns 9.

Sunday, March 27, 2011



and the rainbow cake idea wasn't originally mine as i'm sure most of you know.  it's made its way around the web cause it's AMAZING.  mine turned out nothing close to as cool as the original but it was fun nevertheless.  next time (like there'll be one)?  i need more icing between the layers.  but, in an attempt for less sugar-invasion, i didn't use much.  oh well.  after a few slices were dealt, i threw the rest of it away too.  something that colorful cannot be good for you.  but it was fun to serve and surprise lindsey with.

  14. Ummm...did you really throw the rest away? And did Lindsey cry? That is hilarious. Also, I think yours is prettier than the original...I like it without as much frosting. Way to go, momma!

  15. all this amish talk is really cracking me up.

  16. Lindsey is clearly my kindred spirit. I made that same cake for my nine year old last summer and she has asked for it again this year. I love the surprise of it but yes, it is rather disgusting to eat.

  17. you should all know that i did indeed throw it away but lindsey didn't mind. it wasn't accompanied by tears and begging.

  26. This post is like a rainbow - not just the cake, obvi, but all of it. I love it! Also, I feel like this cake should win an award for "most blogged about dessert craze" - it deserves it.

  27. Awesome cake!! Good job! I would have no idea how to get each layer a different color! Unless you had to cook each layer separate then put it all together...Either way, a great cake.
    I'm glad your daughter had a great birthday!! She seems really sweet.

  28. Oh I'd love to see pics of Lindsey churning butter! How cute is she?! LOL!

    My analytical mind is just too much sometimes because instead of initially thinking what a cute cake my first thought was "how was that made. That couldn't have been easy" Lol!

  29. Love how colorful the party was! The cake looks great, too. I keep giggling about how she has Amish aspirations!

  30. The cake looks fabulous Bridg!! And so does your kitchen, might I add. Oh, and Lindsey too. Happy Birthday Lindsey :)

  31. So I totally thought you made that cake, but it's presence is enough, I'm sure! The decorations and everything looked great! Such a cool mom, you :)

  32. I just stumbled on your blog, and love it! Happy birthday to your beautiful girly! All the decorations are adorable!

  33. I totally wanted to be a pilgrim and churn my own butter, too. I'm fairly sure that's normal.

    Awesome pics. I want that cake in my mouth.

  34. I once churned butter at an American Girl event and it was really hard, but so tasty! So glad Lindsey enjoyed her celebration!

  36. I bet that took more than a few hours huh? I think the pictures alone make it worth it...so lovely to look at (and I bet it tasted yummy too)! I love the picture of the stacked bowls!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Awww...I hope she had a wonderful birthday. Looked like a very festive celebration and your cake looks AHMAZING. Wish I had the urge to try something that complicated!

  38. Happy Birthday Lindsey!! (a little late)


    That cake is amazing. I bet she loved it and it tasted delicious. You always bake the best things. When our friendships becomes an in real life one(and post pregnancy) can we have baking Sundays where we bake, watch movies, and drink wine all day?

    My birthday is April 21st, ehem ehem.

  39. Aww, great cake and loving the paperchains too.

    Happy 9th Birthday Lindsey!

    I appreciate the butter thing. Gotta love kids and their randomness :)

  40. That cake is incredible--bravo!

    So glad that Morgan "introduced" us via Twitter today. It's always nice to commiserate over pregnancy brain. :)

  41. many things come to mind when i read this post. but most importantly, i used to (still want) to live like a pioneer. and it completely comes from little house on the prairie. sit back and read how that lady describes food for a solid five pages and you will want nothing more than to put on your bonnet and churn some butter for the rest of your days.

    lindsey is one smart cookie.

  44. The rainbow cake is more work (and alot of messy bowls) but so worth it! Yours turned out so cute!

    P.S. I think you must be the most adorable pregnant lady ever! Love your blog:)
