Birthday, Pt. II

I am back! I took pictures of my completed cake, that we will have at Mom and Daddy's tomorrow for Easter dessert after Church! It has 3 layers of chocolate cake. I made the extra batter into mini cupcakes for the kiddos. I got a new decorating tip-Wilton 8B-the biggest star tip there is. It is even too big for a coupler! You just stick it down into a decorating bag, and use it as is! I layered the three cakes, and gave them a crumb coat. Then I covered the entire cake with giant stars! For the cupcakes, I did some stars, and some swirls. I decorated the cake with polka dots (non-pareils) and the cupcakes with Snow-Caps.

Look at what my hubby and son got for me for my birthday! I played with it a bit, but just know I will make very good use of it!! I was so excited!

Here is a card I got today, from my friend, Peggy! The pink and brown match the cake! Thanks, Peg! It is a beautiful card!


Have a good night! kl

keri-happy easter! Hey, I want some of that cake! LOL
it's even prettier than I pictured it! Beautiful!! That c/b looks so very cool! I checked out those c/b kids dies at Walmart-if I remember right, there is a butterfly, turtle, cat, dog, pig & frog and maybe a lady bug. I think they are about $3.97 each and the kid's machine was $19.99! You were right yesterday--what have I learned from my 21 day challenge?? I still want stuff! LOL xo
