Sunday Snapshot — She’s Six!!!


  1. Happy Birthday! That's a great cake! I'm loving your blog So glad I found you. Great ideas with a great price tag!

  2. Dear Valerie,

    Can we try to force Emily to decide on what she wants on her cake? She changed her mind about 6 times, and I'm not really that skilled of a cake decorator. Yet.

    Happy Birthday, Emily.

    Yes, I colored the icing and iced / decorated the cake.

    Last year, I made WALL-E.

    If you search the blog, you can find the lemon cake I made for Clara last year.
