Happy Fifth Birthday!

My little guy turned 5 yesterday. We had his party on Monday, and he picked out this cake design from all of my suggestions. It was an easier cake to make. It was time-consuming to make so many different colors of frosting, though. I used Dorie Greenspan's Cocoa Buttermilk cake because the birthday boy requested chocolate- I found the recipe on Meet Me in the Kitchen. I honestly can't tell you how this cake tastes, because I've had a cold for a week now and can't really taste anything! What a shame. But it got good reviews from everyone, especially the birthday boy.

Me too HoneyB, and taste it too! :))

It's a beautiful cake--I love the colors! Save a piece of it & take a bite when you can taste it--let us know if it's good.

Is that a little birthday cupcake?

Thanks everyone! I had a little bit yesterday when I could taste better, and it is good! The pics I took of the inside didn't turn out very well, sorry! Yes, Linda, that is a little birthday cupcake. :)
