Here are the pictures of our little birthday celebration we had for Lily today. My parents came over for dinner, presents and cake and ice-cream. Thanks Mom and Dad. we had a lot of fun.The cake didn't turn out as great as I had hoped it would. I was too excited and had too many ideas going through my head. I thought it would be easier not having a child tell me what they wanted, but I guess not. It was kind of a work in progress with not a solid idea to start out with. I made the cake and it was such an odd shape that I had to cut a lot of cake off to get it level. So I had a level cake, but lots of leftover cake crumbs I cut off. I decided to make cake pops and turn them into flowers (and some bees) and just stick them into the cake. The problem was I put a little too much corn syrup into the almond bark I used for the pedals, so I had floppy flowers. Oh well, they still tasted good. As did the cake. I made chocolate pudding cake with chocolate ganache filling and ganache on the outside....yum.
Lily liked it too. Which is what is really important I guess.
