Happy Birthday Nicky!

We celebrated this little love’s birthday this past weekend.

He looked a little different at his party, though.  You know – the way you’re supposed to look at your first birthday party.

My sister-in-law asked me to make cupcakes for all the kids who would be there.  She gave me the freedom to choose what I wanted to make, but as soon as she told me she was doing a primary color theme, I knew exactly what I’d be baking.

Yep…the famous rainbow cupcakes.  What else screams “birthday” and “bright colors”?

I saw a few recipes online but went with this one from The Girl Who Ate Everything.  I used the cake recipe and the frosting recipe, too…both were terrific.  I threw some Skittles on top, for good measure.


My brother wanted every kid there to have a chance to blow out their own candle…


Super messy to make, but definitely worth it – so pretty!
Happy birthday to my adorable nephew.  Keep on rockin’, buddy!  Love, Aunt Miss.

    I made this recipe the other night in round cake pans to make a bunny cake for an Easter egg hunt party. The cake was delicious and everyone loved the rainbow cake. Thanks for the recipe, Melissa.
