the most photographed birthday cake

It was as much fun to photograph as it was to create.

 Charlotte was having a very important birthday.
 It was her decade birthday, so nothing less than a very special cake would do.

So we baked a yellow cake, mixed the icing until we were able to get the perfectly desired shade of green, and she decorated it.

Then we invited some of her friends over and had an afternoon of confectionery delight. Everyone was given their own pound cake and then bowls of buttercream frosting in colors of blue, orange, yellow, purple and pink were placed in front of them.

And dishes of candy to allow individual artistry of the sweetest kind.

Definitely worthy of many photographs! Stunningly candy-crazy and I'd kinda like one of my own next birthday - yes, I will try to remember that, a cake with lots of candy on top. Thanks for sharing the brightness!

Funny how little things scurry into my mind these days. Things "au nouveau" that prick interest, the voice in the back of my mind ...
