Possibly two of my favorite cakes ever today! This one says Happy Birthday Dessy in Bulgarian. How cool is that?! Sigh... I love my job.
And this is Mr. Giraffe for Elijah's first birthday.
So here's how I made Mr. Giraffe: 2- 13X9" pans, one square, one half-circle, and three mini-cupcakes.
The circle, square, and two cupcakes made the head.
Here's the head after carving... yummy scraps!
Then I layered and carved the 13X 9"s to make the body. Frosted in yellow/orange buttercream and decorated with fondant, and tada!
Today my brother R and sister-in-law M came over for lunch.
Other than that, it was a cloudy day that lent to sleepiness and puppy naps.
Sweet old Sumo sleeps quite a bit during the day, but one look at him greeting the sunshine in the morning and I'm so thankful he's here.
Little Sophie is a pill who likes to jump in people's cars... (Be warned: if you come, shut your doors unless you don't mind this furry visitor!)
