Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday dear me!
Happy Birthday to me!
It was my birthday recently and I decided to celebrate by making myself a cake. I finally got a decent fondant recipe and I had a wonderful time making this cake. I need to practice my string work though. I think I had the wrong consistency of frosting as the strings kept breaking. But otherwise it was a blast! And good practice too.
My son couldn't figure out why I was making my own cake. I explained over and over again that I wanted to, but I think he thinks this is just more proof that Mom is weird.

I was supposed to take another class starting tomorrow, and THEY CANCELLED IT! How annoying! So I am going to go try and sign up again for the next one, and this time there better be enough participants or I will get cranky!

On Monday I took a one day cupcake decorating class. For some reason all the cupcakes were for baby showers. Well, the bouquet one I could probably do for a bridal shower, or Springtime or something. But I had fun anyway.

The cupcakes all got a little squished on the way home before I could photograph them. So I had to do some "clean-up work", but they still don't look as good as they originally did.

I told Ian he could eat one after I took the pictures, so of course he took the one that looked like a baby. Tried to stuff the whole baby in his mouth too. That didn't work out too well.
