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.

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
