I was a member of the GeoClub & Friends team with my fellow Geography Grad students. Our team's theme of the night was Woodstock. We tie-dyed our shirts and offered face painting for $1. A fellow student created a 12 hour playlist of appropriate songs and I truly believe she missed her true calling/time as a hippie. ;)
My contribution to the night, besides participating, was bringing baked goods! Through my constant recipe browsing online, I had come across a recipe for a rainbow cake, and thought it would be perfect for our theme. Since I have developed my skills in the kitchen more over the past few years, I no longer buy box mixes. Therefore, instead of using the recipe provided on the website, I decided to use a Golden Butter Cake recipe from my Good Housekeeping Cookbook. I previously used this recipe this past summer, so I knew it was delicious and would be easy to color.
Overall, I think these came out pretty awesome and everyone loved them. I even had one person, that came up to our table, ask if they were edible! I think these would be perfect for a child's birthday party, since they are bright and colorful. They are also pretty simple to make, since all you need is cake batter and food coloring!
