I can not believe my baby girl is 6! My how time flies! Our little princess had 2 birthday cakes. One on her birth day and one at her party. The first cake was fairly simple, although I did have a difficult time with the squiggles...that's what happens when you are missing the writing tip from your cake decorating set. With a little duct tape and a lot of determination I was able to make it work...sort of!
I wanted to make another simple, but lovely cake for Malia's party...but that didn't happen...thanks to the inspiration of my lovely friend Rita. Yes, I do blame her for causing me to attempt something WAY beyond my ability and level of experience. We spent an evening shopping and had a blast! I intended to purchase a large round cake pan and a decorating kit...that's it! But...by the time we left WalMart I had purchased everything from Chinese lanterns to pillars for the cake! The cake turned out ok, but I had neglected to purchase hot pink food coloring and wasn't about to make another long trip into town just for that, so the cake was not the exact color I would have liked.
I saw a really cool banner idea in one of my Stampin Up! flyers and wanted to make it. However, I soon realized that the banner would be HUGE if I wanted to have multiple layers. So I switched to squares and it turned out lovely...even the boys thought so!
We dressed up as princess', painted nails, wore tiaras, made a craft, and had lots of fun!
