Yesterday was my birthday. We had a very nice day, and since my sister and her family just moved to NC this summer, it was my first birthday since Im here (5 years) that we actually had a housefull of people. It was really great.
I wanted to show you the beautiful cake that my husband and children got me this year. Its called Basket of Flowers and it was one of the prettiest cakes I have seen. Everything is made of whipped cream and it was 2 huge layers of chocolatey goodness inside that frosting. It was so realistic, my Brother in Law asked if it was the cake or a centerpiece for fall.
Here is the whole cake on my vintage milk glass cake pedestal. This is a closeup of the flowers~ which were about 2 inches thick in parts.
This is a shot of the basket weave the talented girl did. Impressive, huh??

And this is a photo from my kitchen island. I took this one cause the titles on these cards are the 3 most important to me~ MOM,WIFE and DAUGHTER. I am honored to be all of these 3 things to the best people in the world. Thanks for making my birthday so very special.

The photos of blowing out the candles and all of us enjoying this cake are on my Husbands camera, and are yet to be downloaded. I'll try to get them up for tomorrow.
Many thanks for stopping by...

You are right---that cake is AWESOME and to think it was from WAL-MART?!!! Whoever she is, should have her own shop! OK-so we have the stamp store, Cynthia for massage, coffee & bakery shop...we can't go wrong!
