Happy Burp Day!

Mini M is now 5! I'm really having a hard time believing that she can be that old. We had the normal backyard birthday party/cook out for her, and were lucky enough to have a perfect day. Happy birthday my not-so-Mini M!


p.s. Here is my first attempt at trying to conquer fondant for her requested "present cake." (Note... I said attempt.)

Wow Em! What a fantastic cake!
I've not heard of fondant before. Was it terribly fiddly to make?
The ribbons and bow look wonderful and Mini-M obviously loved it.
What a wonderful mom you are!

Shut it! That cake was gorgeous *and* delicious. Those were the tastiest ribbons ever. And most importantly, Min was pretty darn excited about it. She showed it to me twice before the pary. :)

EM!!!! Thats a beaut of cake. Way to go. Very impressive. Very special for the birthday gal too, I'm sure. You're a great mom. Give M a birthday high five from us Idaho people (which, by the way, we won't be for long). We're Seattle bound, moving in July!

That fondant looks awesome, lady! For real, that's so difficult to do and if this was an attempt, I'd say you're well on your way to becoming most-requested cake lady.

Kristen- Shockingly, the fondant was not that hard to make. Here is a link to the recipe I used. http://whatscookingamerica.net/PegW/Fondant.htm
