She is good, isn't she!

This is TJ's latest drawing, she is 7 now and is so good at it (as always)!

I could have never done this 8 weeks ago!

Basket weave cake

Yesterday was the last day of Wilton's cake decorating classes course 2.  I learned to make the basket weave design with butter cream icing and I put together this cake with the royal icing flowers I had learned to make in the previous 3 classes.  I like the way this turned out!

A yellow ombre birthday cake for the sunshine of my life!

My little girl turned 11 today!  I was determined to make a cake and I thought I can woo her with my newly acquired cake decorating skills form the Wilton cake decorating basics course.  I have been baking all my kids birthday cakes for many years now, but I did not pride myself as a blogworthy cake decorator.

After pondering for more than a week I was still undecided on the cake design which is when I saw this beauty. There are more amazing versions of the same themed cake here, here, and here.  Wow, isn't it?

Well I had to make my own version of this, of course my daughter is not a fan of pink so I had to pick from one of her favorite colors, that's when I decided on yellow, what better way to celebrate someone who brightens my day everyday!
