Saturday Sweets! Lily's 1st Birthday

Happy Saturday Sweets!  It has been exactly a week since my terrible horrible nail break (wow, dramatic much?).  I think my nail has grown enough now to do a post this weekend.  Thanks again to Liesl and Steph for the guest posts to get me through the week.  You may notice that my photos are now REALLY BIG.  I'm currently going through my blog and blowing them up.  I love reading the blogs with big pics because you can see the detail in the nail polish - so I decided to update my blog to my liking.  I'm a little nervous about the fact that you can see flaws easier, but I'll take one for the team:)

And here we are again, Saturday Sweets.  A friend of mine asked me to do her daughter's 1st birthday cakes and match them to the plates and invites (called Hugs n' Stitches - you can google it to see).





As you know, a 1 year old needs a smash cake, so I had to make two cakes.  The smash cake was 6 inches in diameter and the main cake was 12 inches.  Both cakes were chocolate with raspberry mousse filling.  I was a little nervous about that pairing of flavors, but she said they were really good.  But would she have told me if they weren't?  The cakes were covered in buttercream with fondant accents.

I look forward to taking pictures of my nails again!  Look for a post soon:)

  3. The cakes look amazing, wish I could have a piece of them!
    Don't worry about the flaws, most of the time we're the only ones to notice them.

    1. Yes, I have realized that when I point them out. I guess I mostly pay attention to the polish on other peoples' blogs...

  5. These are soooo adorable! And it's fun to see how different babies react to their first cake. One of my nieces dug right in and got it everywhere, one was a little tentative but still messy, and one of my nephews was all dainty with his. So cute. Apparently I put my candle out with my bare hand. :p

  6. That's it, I'm hiring you to make my birthday cake!!! Raspberry mousse filling... Buttercream topping... Oh yeah....!!!
    Btw, I like the bigger pictures too!!! I know the imperfections show more but we're all human and know that cuticles are never perfect!! (Unless you have people who do everything for you, including wiping your butt. Because if you do it then you gotta wash your hands, and all that soap will dry out your hands!)

    1. LOL, where are you from again? Colorado or something? Sure, I'll make a trip....no promises on how the cake will end up looking like after going through the baggage claim. Thanks for noticing and commenting on the bigger pictures. It is scary to show my cuticles and flaws in all their glory, but I do it for the polish's sake:)
