Behold! What to do when your child asks for a skittles cake for his 5th birthday? Make this!
Find yourself some cute helpers.
Make a cake and divide the batter into small bowls. I made four colors with lots of tasty food coloring. Have your helpers mix in the colors because that is fun. Let them think you do not notice them sneaking skittles into their mouths.
Frost with a buttercream, chill and then decorate with homemade fondant. Yum!
Calvin was so very pleased.
It took us a week to polish off this cake - it really serves about 12 or more.
This was the day of his actual birthday. Bryan was here with the kids for cake and presents with the family. We'll get to the Scooby-Doo birthday cake soon!
