First Cake – My Little Pony Birthday


The first cake I made was this cute My Little Pony rainbow cake for my Daughter’s 4th Birthday in 2015.  It was a six inch white cake with five layers inside, each colored to match the buttercream stripes on the outside, plus two fondant clouds at the base of a paper rainbow topper on a blue sky.  If I did this cake again now, I might try making that rainbow out of fondant or gum paste!

I followed this tutorial on YouTube by My Cupcake Addiction when I made this cake and found it very easy to follow.



My Daughter loved this cake, and my family were all very kind with their comments on this imperfect first try.  I couldn’t wait to make my oldest Son’s birthday cake the following month!
