Keep the cake simple (even store bought) and add the color with candles.
Like the trendy large punch bowl that's served to a crowd with tons of straws, this oversized banana split fills up a large glass vase and requires the party to grab a spoon and dig on in.... Germ phobics included!
Oh how I love this wacky cake. The rainbow effect can't help but make for smiles.
If cake isn't your thing, let'em with sorbet set to sparkle. Elegant and pretty, it ends the evening in style.
