Boho Rainbow Cookies & Birthday Cake

The final instalment, (only 6 months later!) of Edith’s boho rainbow party. For Edith’s birthday tea we ordered pizza as it’s her favourite. It also meant we didn’t have to worry about getting lots of buffet food in. Instead, we could focus on having a table for desserts.  Edith’s birthday cake was two Betty Crocker Vanilla mixes. Before baing the cakes I mixed through a load of bake safe sprinkles to make it a funfetti cake! I ordered the sprinkles from Shire Bakery.

I then stacked the cakes on top of each and finished with a load of pastel pink buttercream. I then used the buttercream as glue to stick on mini rainbow biscuits. She absolutely adored her cake and it was so simple to make. Birthday cakes don’t need to take hours to cook to be a great cake. We topped the cake with wooden toppers from MegCatHooray (AD PR) and then her chosen toy cake topper from Trolls too!

It’s become a bit of a tradition to make marshmallow sticks too, I made them for Norah’s bear party. It’s so simple to make simply pop two marshmallows on a stick, dip in chocolate and pop a mini rainbow on top. And then you leave to set. So simple, but again super tasty!!

The rainbow biscuits are gingerbread and I made big ones, little ones and circle ones too. The dough makes up a lot so you can vary sizes depending on what you need. They would make a great make for Spring and Summer parties too. You can find the recipe below!
