So Tuesday was a birthday day for me... it was my Daddy's birthday!! He would've been 63 ...he passed away when I was 6 and still I miss him like crazy! ♥♥♥

It was also my "mother-in-law's" birthday and so I baked her a little cake to celebrate. I have been caking for as a hobby for a few years now. I used to be pretty active in it but now I try to limit the amount of cakes I make, mostly because it takes so much time and there is A LOT of clean up ...and I HATE that part.  But for her, no problem!

In baking her cake, I also had to make cupcakes for ZeeBee. She had been asking to bake cupcakes for awhile and since I was already baking and it was a cool day in comparison to the heatwave we'd had, I figured, oven's already going...why not?  She got to pour all the ingredients in and mix it all up and of course, decorate them with the pretty colored stars she picked out from the store and just had to have, lol.

Pretty sweet day!!


  1. Wow - that cake is beautiful! Is that a fondant? I've always wanted to try fondant but never have! The cupcakes are pretty cute too!

  2. Thank you! Yep, its fondant. Give it a try! Once you get the hang of it you can do all kinds of things. It's not too bad to work with.
