I love making and decorating cakes. Love. It. However, I’m usually limited to sheet cakes with pretty decorations. Today I got to make a 3 tiered cake! I’ve only done one before, and that was back in high school. I didn’t know you needed dowels for support so the cake was a little lopsided to say the least. Not this one…okay, maybe a little, but it’s so much better than the first one I made. Complete with fresh strawberries from the Peach Stand down the street. I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but…’dooo doo do doooooo!’

Today is my husband’s 32nd birthday! I asked him this morning what kind of cake he wanted, and he said “one of your cakes…no…a red velvet cake.” “My cake” is actually a recipe from one of my best friend’s growing up mom, Patty. I called them “Patty Cakes”, and they are incredible! Well, because I am an awesome wife and because Andy deserves it, I made both!
It’s a birthday jump!…taken by the birthday boy.
I think every girl has that one special memory with their grandmother. With my ‘Moremamma’, it’s making crafts, with my ‘Mamaw’, it’s baking a cake. Not just any cake…a chocolate cake with homemade caramel icing. I hadn’t made one with her in years, and now that I’m doing the photography thing, I thought it was only appropriate to document it 🙂
Papaw decided to be the stand in photographer 🙂
So did Mamaw 🙂
Another shot by Papaw.
He was really getting into the camera.
Anyone who knows Mamaw, knows she uses plastic bags to store food in when you have to travel with it. All in good reason. 🙂
Time for a Mamaw and Papaw photoshoot.
I love you both!
