What was your source for this recipe? Online Recipe
What is the name of the online recipe? Rainbow Layer Cake
Special instructions for the recipe I just followed the recipe for the actual cake. For the frosting I made cream cheese frosting but used coconut flavoring instead of vanilla.

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: The rainbow on top is a cake I baked in a smaller circular pan, then cut in half and propped on top of the layer cake. I used wooden skewers to keep it on. I used pieces of cake to make the "clouds" too, and just frosted them a ton. It is frosted very simply and I used a star tip and small round tip for all the decorating.

What are you most proud of? It turned out pretty good despite having no plan for the top and the decorating until the very last minute.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use gel food coloring in the batter of the cake because the colors turn out bolder!
