I made an 8 inch round rainbow cake the other day. I used 3 cake mixes to get my layers; 2 cups per layer and had some batter left over. Each layer was approx 3/4 inch high with two ice cream scoops of BC in between. Total height was jut shy of 5 inches. My husband enjoyed cake tops with cool whip.

Just wondering if anyone can recommend DIY kits to make cookie cutters.  I found one on The Cookie Cutter website but I couldn't find any reviews.  
I took a reminder of a 1L carton of buttermilk and poured it out into ice cube trays, froze it and after it froze put them in a large ziplock baggie.  Each ice cube form holds close to 30 mls I find. 
I can't read a single post in this thread.  This is what is driving me bonkers!
Last night I made about five pounds of butter cream for the three dozen cupcakes and barbie cake I have intentions on making today- Saturday.
