I made these My Little Pony themed rainbow cakes for my daughter, Cara's, 5th birthday.
I originally saw this idea on a show that used to come on that Cara and I would watch together called Zoom. It was a kid's show with crafts, recipes, games, silly skits, etc. that was hosted by kids.
After I mixed the batter I separated it into three bowls and colored the batter rainbow colors. I layered the colors when I poured the batter in the pan; so when we cut the cake it was colored pink, yellow, and blue like the icing. That was a fun surprise. I baked the cake in a Bundt pan. I cut the cake in half and stood the halves up to look like rainbows. Then I iced them in buttercream that I had tinted rainbow colors.
The ponies are pictures that I cut out from her My Little Pony toys' packaging and then laminated. After the cake was iced I put the ponies in various places around the rainbows. I attached paper that looked like grass around the bottom rainbow and paper that looked like sky around the top rainbow to make it look like one was on the ground and one was in the sky.
