It was my besties birthday on Monday, and being the spoilt brat he is, I decided he needed LOTS of birthday cakes. We had a lovely big picnic with our friend and everyone brought great stuff along. I was, of course, in charge of desserts!

I started the day first up with leaving a single cupcake outside his house in the morning. I wrapped it in a little clear cube & tied a single helium balloon to it, then texted him that his birthday breakfast awaited him outside!



For entrees at the picnic, I made him some Little Green Men cupcakes!



Ooooooooooooooooooh hhhh!



And for the big finale, I tried to do a How to Train your Dragon cake. I wasn't happy with how Toothless came out, and come 10pm I decided I had better give up and do something else. I didn't have any fondant left so the first thing that came to mind was a rainbow layer cake! I had been wanting to try one for a while, so why not!

My lovely husband, showcasing the massively tall cake!









I used a standard butter cake recipe, and buttercream icing. And it was diviiinnneee!

Epic birthday.  Seriously.  I love that breakfast cupcake.  We should all have breakfast cupcakes every once in a while.

What an awesomely lucky friend!! They're all great but right now I'm loving rainbow layer cakes, I think I'm going to have to give it a go and attempt a neon layer cake for our upcoming 80's birthday/Halloween bash. Cheesy
