My little girl was having her 7th birthday, and really wanted to fun cake. I knew I wasn't going to have a lot of time, because weren't going to be home much right before her birthday.

So I found a fun cake on pinterest that wasn't frosted all the way and let the sides of the cake show through.  It was really quick to make, and turned out great. (She was so excited and helped to put on the flowers.) I just used boxed white cake and added a bit of almond extract to the batter (it really makes the cake taste great). Then I portioned the batter out into bowls and added Wilton food coloring gel to it.  The frosting is a marshmallow butter cream with half vanilla and half almond extract for flavoring. Probably my all time favorite icing ever.

And here are pictures of some of the slices.
