Artwalk Interactive Rainbow Cake & Cupcakes

I have been wanting to make a rainbow cake for a while now, and this week I finally had the opportunity to play with red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple cake batter!

I made a 6" round 6-layer cake...

And 100 ROYGBP cupcakes. I LOVE these VIBRANT colors!

Each cupcake was topped with a white fondant circle to be decorated as part of an artwalk celebration. The idea for a "decorate your own" cake & cupcakes came from the talented Rosie of Sweetapolita.

Here is the final display I designed for the 6th annual LoDa Artwalk. The cake and cupcakes were displayed at wellbornIdeas as part of an "interactive" display.

People who visited the gallery were invited to grab an edible marker and decorate their "blank canvas" on top of their cupcake.

Here's a look at the final 3 tier cake prior to being decorated by local artists as well as members of the community. The bottom two tiers are dummy cakes and the top tier is the ROYGBP cake! To play off of the scalloped edge of the cake pedestal I thought it would be fun to create a scallop rim around each tier of cake in the rainbow colors to tie in with the theme.

Here's a look at 3 wellbornIdeas employees decorating their cupcakes.

and on the cake

Here is Ashley, one of the featured gallery artists for the evening putting her artistic talents to work on the bottom tier of the cake...looking good!

I love how she used the scallops and turned them in to owl eyes, I would have never thought of creative!

It was so cool to see a variety of creative minds coming together with their artistic contributions to the final cake!

Even the little ones got in on the fun!

Here's the final cake! What an amazing event to be a part of! Thanks wellbornIdeas for asking me to provide the cake and cupcakes for this special event!
