Rainbow Cake

Years ago I saw a picture of this cake in a magazine....and as usual it has taken me this long to get around to making it.

It's a little time consuming as you have to cook 5 cakes, I suppose it would be heaps quicker if you

A. Had a really big oven - I don't
B. You had 5 cake tins all the same size - I don't

However I did have a lot of fun making it & of course my family got a big surprise as uncut it just looks like any iced cake, once cut it surprised everyone with a little bit of Rainbow Cake cheer!

Try it sometime it's well worth the time & effort. I just used a simple Butter cake recipe (doubled) & then split into 5 bowls.

I LOve this girl

I Love this girl

Who is still only seventeen (So young)
Oh the joy of being seventeen again!!

Who is nearly, but not quite through the first year of a double degree.
A Bachelor of Nursing & just to put a bit more pressure on herself, a degree in
Paramedical Science. HEAVY!!

A girl that joked with her Mother, when asked of her marks?
(While we were washing up one day)

"I haven't even got a pass yet Mum"

And as I was about to go into PANIC!! mode
(Before I dropped the stack of clean dishes)

She turned around gave me a mischievous grin
and said....

"Well, Mum that's because I only get Distinctions, High Distinctions
& a few Credits"

Gosh I Love this Girl!!

PS-Emerald's away doing her nursing placement atm, so I do hope she checks in & reads this.

PSS- The Universty system here in Queensland is (but not always) a - Fail, Pass, Credit, Distinction or a High Distinction.

For Today....

A lot of lazing & resting, tissues & more tissues along with a hefty dose of
painkillers waiting for this dreaded lurgy to pass.

Happy Fathers Day

Sorry I didn't post this yesterday honey it sat in my drafts all day- but we did have an awesome day didn't we.

Thank you for being such a good Dadda in my children's
life since they lost their own Daddy.

We cherish it & you have made my life so much easier by it.

I love the way the kids write such thoughtful kind messages of love in their cards to you.
Soldier Boy's blew me away this year, for a guy of his age to write such loving words to you has made me so proud to be his Mumma.

Love Caroline xoxo

PS-And thank you for sooking me this week while I have the flu.
