Hi everyone!! I have had one crazy week here, so I haven't had the chance to get very creative. I do have a birthday cake that I made for my grandmother's 80th birthday. I cut the flowers, leaves, and sentiment on my Cricut Cake machine with gum paste and two of the Martha Stewart Cake art cartridges.
The cake is chocolate and the frosting is butter cream. I used three 13 inch round cake pans to create this cake. The flowers and butterfly are all molded and dried before I applied them to the cake to help them stand up a little bit. I dotted the center of the flowers with some of the left over butter cream frosting. I know that she just loved it!! My grandmother is an amazing woman and I know that most of my crafting talent comes from her. Happy Birthday Grandma!!
On a sad note, I lost my beloved pet dog and best friend this last week. It has been really hard for me to get over it and I am really going to miss her.....she was my shadow and I don't feel quite the same without her following me everywhere. Her name was Cassie and she was 11 years old. Good by my SWEET friend!!
