    Will you attempt the rainbow layer cake with white icing on the outside?? DD1 had a rainbow party when she was little and I bought a slab of sponge from the bakery decorated it with blue butter icing and made a huge rainbow out of smarties it looked awesome!

    Rosetti - I like to make my own cakes, but have no talent whatsoever. That's why the individual cupcakes are a winner for me! I also loved ladybirdflies idea - I reckon even I could handle that, lol!

    I've been on YouTube 'learning'. I can see a disaster forming, but my friends know I'm not the worlds most talented baker. Thinking of doing a trial run this weekend lol

    Re: Rainbow theme party

    You could make a big platter of fruit in the shape of a rainbow, each strip of colour is comprised of various fruits or vegges in that colour.

    Re: Rainbow theme party

    Rainbow pinata!

    Or pinata cupcakes filled with rainbow colours (lots of examples of Pinterest)

    If you have a table set up for the little ones to sit around while eating make their names up in multi coloured alphabet fridge magnets or you can get alphabet crayons from Etsy or Ebay. Could become part of their take home party favour gift.

    Re: Rainbow theme party

    we had a rainbow theme for one of our DDs birthdays. we had a rainbow layered cake and little cups of rainbow layered jellies. i think had cupcakes topped in different colours and arranged on the stand with little paper rainbow toppers that i made.

    for the take home bags it was again paper rainbows that i made stuck onto paper bags with rainbow ribbons tying them up. inside were glitter glues etc.

    for party prizes i went to smiggles and had as the Big Prizes those rainbow pencil cases as they had a 2 for 1 deal happening at the time. they were a HUGE hit for both the boys and girls.

    Ok I need to stop posting here but just saw a rainbow theme party on the site Babyology. If you go into the section 'show us your party' it should be near the top.

    Re: Rainbow theme party

    How about making red cabbage indicator, then let children play at magic colour changes outside with acids and alkalis? (I mean lemon juice, vinegar, bicarb, soap etc. Not 2M HCl. Colour change chemistry is so much fun for small children and this is not harmful.)

    Ok, not for them to eat but still food related. Except soap.

    Re: Rainbow theme party

    I made a rainbow cakes for ds3's christening. Instead of layering I just added colours alternatively into the centre of the cake tin then let it cook. Turned out a awesome. I then did chocolate ganach and put blue fondant stars all over it. But the cake was most impressive

    Re: Rainbow theme party

    I'm so excited about rainbow themed party now and I haven't even Googled or been onto Pinterest! And I've just realised DS is 4 in less than two months....wonder if I can convince him to have a rainbow party theme...

    Another idea for the party or take home party bags....Coloured curly straws, or, do what I always do and buy bendy straws then print out little pics, punch holes and attach (like bought ones but way cheaper and for any theme).
