Birthday Cake and Presents
Here's the cake. It's DONE. I'm no professional, but it turned out alright considering the issues I encountered. See the peach frosting that is her face and hands? Well, that was done last. It would have looked better, but I had a HUGE frustration when the side seam of my bag burst and frosting went all over parts I had already done. So, those parts got simplified...her facial features got minimized and simplified, and I was just frustrated! :) After that, I did the "seeds" on her strawberries, so they weren't done very patiently either. It turned out okay for a first-timer, but I'm not sure if I'll do many more of this type of cake for the future. We'll see...
There are the presents from Momma and Daddy. The big one that is blue/pink/purple/green was a DOOZIE to wrap! You can't really tell, but it's horridly odd-shaped. I forgot to mention 1 of her presents earlier...it's the little box with the polka dots. It is her 2-year figurine from my friend, Bekah Lynn...aka the 1st Bek from the previous post. Read the comments if you don't understand what I'm talking about. Anyway, they are little porcelien girls that are holding the number of which birthday it is...ie this one is holding a #2. They were actually Bek's when she was little and she gave them to Cassie, so they're pretty special. On her shelf currently are the "birth" and "1" figurines and tonight we'll add the "2."
Well, that's it. Loads more housecleaning to do, so I'd best get to it. Hope you all have a great day!
