I’ve made a few rainbow caticorn cakes in the last coupla months, inspired by my OG rainbow caticorn cake I made for Saya back in the fall. Since my first initial post, I was fielding a few emails from excited bakers and moms who wanted to try it out – so I changed the post into a rainbow caticorn tutorial of sorts with a few handy dandy tips. This cutie pie I made amongst the crush of Christmas madness back in December for my sweet pal Phanie’s daughter Chloe’s birthday. The excellent thing about having a cake making skill is that you can trade this for other goods and services. So since Phanie is an amazing photographer, I traded Phanie two cakes for a holiday family portrait sesh. The other cake I made was for Phanie’s son Malcolm’s birthday, on Boxing Day. We had just hosted Christmas Day dinner at our place the night before and were dashing off to Whistler on Boxing Day so I did not get proper photos of the super cute bunny with a “carrot” nose cake I made for Malcolm… You can see a few incredibly sweet snaps of Malcolm’s bunny cake with carrot nose here. I’ve written about my admiration for Phanie before on this blog – she has her own blog called Moses Moses Moses in which she writes in detail about the actual trials and tribulations and great joys of life – raising her children, making art, trying to maintain a sense of self, the struggles and frustration, highs and lows, and bittersweet joy of motherhood. She lays her heart bare in her posts, something I wish I could do more. I feel like I waffle between “OH LOOK AT THIS CUTE CAKE I MADE” and “I HAD CANCER AND CAN NO LONGER HAVE CHILDREN” and “R.I.P. PATRIARCHY”… I haven’t quite found my Goldilocks-approved just-right, but for now I also think that is ok… xo Lyndsay
