Show and Tell

A couple of weeks ago my daughter turned 6. My favorite part of birthdays (or any holiday for that matter) is the baking. So here's what I did this time...



The inspiration for the cake was a painting we bought for her room a couple of years ago. The actual painting has lots of princesses and a dragon, but I know my limits with icing and they don't extend that far!

The cookie bouquets didn't come out quite as I'd hoped, but for a first and rushed attempt I wasn't too disappointed (and the kids sure didn't care!)

I can not believe that cake! You definitely under-estimated your skills when you told me about it

What a wonderfully fun cake.
Of all the money I've put into buying a decked out cake in the past, my sons favorite, and he asks for one now every year, is the ones I make for him. I love making the cake. Now at his age, he likes to use his imagination and help me make the cake.
