This weekend the Big Guy and I headed down to my Grandpa's house for an early Easter gathering. Well...it was billed as an "Early Easter", but really? It was to meet my Grandpa's girlfriend, Lois. She wanted to meet all of us. Grandpa asked....we went. My mom even flew in from Montana!
Because our family gatherings have been pot-luck style since about 1982, I agreed to bring dessert. I decided to make a rainbow cake!
What started out as individual cakes tinted with a boat load of food coloring.....
Ended up as a frosted tower of sugar goodness (no, the frosting isn't funfetti--those are crumbs from the cake....clearly I still need practice).
And when sliced, it looked like this.....
My goof ball husband.
When I served the first slice, the room gasped and a really-loud, "WOW!!" was heard by all.
All for a cake!
Thankfully we didn't need to worry about a sugar coma. My grandpa tests his blood sugar....so, if anyone was in real trouble, he would have known what to do. I hope.
