Rainbows and Leprechauns

Merritt's class unit is Rainbows and Leprechauns this week. She has learned all about the colors in the rainbow (remember ROY G BIV?) and today had a potato sampling. She learned that she did not like potato salad although she didn't even taste it! Everything else was right up her alley: potato chips, mashed potatoes, french fries, tator tots, etc. She fits in with the average preschooler who states that their favorite vegetable is french fries!

In honor of learning about rainbows, I went out on a limb and baked a rainbow cake thanks to the idea from American Girl magazine. I'm pretty proud of myself! Not sure how it will taste but I know they will be excited to see the colors when the teacher cuts the cake!


  1. Way cute!!!! How many layers? 4? DId you just use food coloring? Very clever!

  2. Looks good enough to eat. How many points?
