Birthday Cake


Well what a fun weekend we had at Gidget's competition this past weekend. Though she didn't get that last 1st place she needs to move up to the Champion level of dance, she danced amazing this past weekend. Though she was terribly disappointed, she just smiled and said'I'll just have to work a bit harder and I will get it next time." She makes a mama proud.
We also celebrated her 13th b'day with an amazing cake made by my friend, and local "CAKE BOSS" Dawn Cooke who owns "Desserts byDawn,LLC." She took the design from the team dance dresses at my daughter's dance school and used it to design a gorgeous cake. She did a stellar job with the Celtic Knot Appliques from the dress. (That had to be painstaking), she also put the school logo on the cake with a pair of hard shoes. The cake was 1vanilla teir and 1 chocolate with cookies and creme buttercream frosting filling. Yes it was as delicious as it sounds. Here are some pics of the cake.

As you can see the cake was AMAZING!!!! If any of you live locally in the Charlotte area and would be interested in a cake made by Dawn, email me. She is also on FB. Not meaning to turn this into an ad for her, but she is amazing, and I highly recommend her. Well that is all for tonite, I return tomorrow with "Words of Wisdom" and some new Art stuff I am working on. Also this week I will have some homeschool news, projects, and yearly testing results. Lots of great stuff coming up!! Hope you will all come back and join me. Hoping this finds you all well!!!

God Bless,
