Last weekend, I got the opportunity to go to Nashville to see my mother on her birthday. I hadn't been in a while so it was really great to visit. I also got to see my sister who is in med school in Memphis. It had seemed like forever since we saw her last. The kids and I had really been missing everyone so we were thankful for the chance to get away.
Before we left, I worked on cake #3 to present to my mother for her birthday. I was really pleased with how it turned out except for discovering that working with dark colors is hard because they can bleed onto the lighter colors. I am hoping to attempt a 2 tier cake soon.
My sister-in-law and I decided to trade favors. I am going to make the cake for my nephew, Elijah's, 1st birthday and she is going to help me with some flyers for my little cake business. I think she got the short end of that stick, though, since she has a degree in graphic-design and well, I am still learning.
Here are some pics of mom's cake.
