I have long admired the rainbow layer cake. With so many of them popping up around the place, every time I think to myself... I'll give that a crack one day. And my littlest babe turning two this week was the perfect opportunity to finally try it out. Phew! I am glad the boy's birthdays are six months apart. As fun as it was to bake six individual cakes and whip up two double batches of butter cream, I think I need a nice gap to prepare for the next cake inspiration to unfold.
Today we had a lovely little celebration with some wonderful friends. The children were so beautifully behaved and had a great time running around keeping warm, despite the freezing cold temperature. It seems such a long time ago when my darling Felix entered the world. Yet I remember the precious moment like yesterday. As with his big brother, I will never forget his sweet baby breath in those first seconds after he was born. As bizarre as it sounds, I honestly wish I could bottle that scent. There is simply nothing as pure and fresh. He is a dynamo, our little man, but we all adore him so very much and the spark he has brought into our lives.
