Funfetti Watercolor Cake

It took me 4 months to post it, but here is Auntie Bails Birthday Cake.  We were so excited to give her this cake.  Not just because it was her birthday, but she came home from her 18 month mission from the Philippines on her birthday. I made the cake, but the kids helped to decorate it.
We made her favorite, Funfetti.  Then covered it with fondant and left to pick her up from the airport. I wish I had pictures to show of her homecoming, but we were all so excited to give her hugs that we didn't take any pictures.  After the reunion we headed home so she could get cleaned up and the kids started their masterpiece.

If you are wanting to try this at home you will need:
A fondant covered cake
Gel food coloring diluted with clear vanilla extract
Clean paintbrushes.  We have special food only paint brushes.
Eager Artists

Once the kids were done with painting every inch of the cake I put some extra touches on it to hide the bottom. 

Doesn't it look like stain glass?  They had so much fun and she loved that it was made by the kids.

Happy Birthday Bails.  We are so glad you are home!!
