happy birthday to me! :)
for my birthday this year i chose to make a rainbow layered cake instead of an entremet. i think the pastel version looks way better compared to one done in primary colors. i used junko's roll cake recipe since i really liked it then used a meringue frosting for the cake. i adorned it with a gumpaste flower from the baking supply shop. never used to like their flowers but this one caught my eye (though i have no idea what this is). it looks like a cross between my favorite peony and ranunculus. definitely looking to make other ombré/pastel versions of this someday!
