Cake Mom – I’m getting there!

If you have spent any time on this blog you undoubtedly come to the conclusion that I :

  • come from a family of crazies
  • am a nerd
  • love cake
  • all of the above

Well, if you didn’t respond D you need to go back and read some more of my posts! Any ways, this winter I posted about my desire to become THAT mom, the one who makes the best birthday cakes ever and all the kids rave about after said birthday party. I have been making cakes since I was a kid, not professional looking, just super creative and fun. Well, I my latest cake, for my daughter’s 8th birthday in February, literally ‘takes the cake‘ ! I am so proud of it, because it is the coolest cake I have ever made, because she squealed with delight, and because I learned how to make and use fondant. Look out world, there are more cakes coming your way. I just need an excuse to make another one…any excuse will do! Happy Monday Cake? It Hasn’t Rained Yet Today Cake?
