Remember this baby from this post a couple of weeks ago? Well, today I am going to share with you how I made it :)
First you get yourself a pretty plate...
Then you whip up a batch of whipping cream. ( i used a full liter of whipping cream, half for all the different colours and half just plain white) Next, I got six small bowls and evenly distributed the whipped cream into each bowl. Then I added food colourings to make red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I then used some of the yellow (because that colour had the most w-cream) and smeared it on the plate in the shape I wanted, with the idea to sort of glue down the cookies. I used Mr. Christie's Chocolate Wafers (you can get them at any grocery store I believe)
Then working in reverse "ROYGBIV" I layered the coloured whipped creams and wafers...
Until I ended up with this....
Doesn't it look pretty and colourful?! I actually really liked it like this, but I had other plans! Next I added one more layer of wafers and covered the whole shebang in plain white w-cream.
And finally, my little helper Nyla and I, added the finishing touch, CANDY! I used mostly Smarties, with a few Skittles filling in here and there (mostly just in the red row, you can tell the Skittles as they're a bit smaller)
The very final step was to put it in the freezer for awhile and let it set so that I could cut it without everything smooshing out. Worked pretty good! The girls were pretty impressed too :)
And it made my birthday girl very happy :)
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
