Sweet 16 Birthday Cake

You might crave some cake after this post.

Back in September at my daughter’s birthday party, my niece Madison requested that I make a sweet 16 birthday cake for her.  It was her sweet 16 birthday party this past weekend and I was so excited to get baking and make this cake.  I wanted to do a cake that was inspired by her pink homecoming dress with all of the rosettes on it.  It took two days to get the cake done with all of the baby Tallulah interruptions, but it came out just how I wanted it to.  I made a 5 layer vanilla cake with each layer a different color.  I went with pretty pastel colors in lavender, pink, pinky peach, light peach, and then white.  I used a butter cream frosting and started with large rosettes at the bottom of the cake and gradually made them smaller.  I topped the cake with large rosettes and then made a handmade cake topper with Madison’s name spelled out in flags.  Here are the pictures of the finished cake.
