Adventures in Cake decorating


One of my sweet nieces just turned one and we had quite the celebration for her this weekend!

I was honored that her mom asked an amateur like me to make the cake for such a milestone birthday celebration. I always get so nervous when baking cakes, especially for family, because I want them to be perfect and I see all the flaws. I think my sister-in-law was pleased with the way this one turned out!

Is this all for me?!?


Mmmm... I think I will!


I think she likes it!


Happy Birthday, sweet girl!!
