Yes that's right - today is my birthday. Not sure where the last 34 years went. But I got here. I have been spoilt rotten by my family. Of interest to you all will be the cake made for me, by my dear friend Lisa from "The Whole Cake and Caboodle". I knew I was going to pick up a cake, what I didn't know, was she had made me a whole bunch of cookies too. I just LOVE my cake and I LOVE my cookies. Thankyou Lisa!
When Lisa was organising my cake, she asked me to give her a slice of scrapbooking paper I liked. I couldn't decide, so gave her three, She incorporated the design from 2 of them in the bottom 2 tiers of the cake (you can see one of them behind the cookies as backdrop). The bottom cake is chocolate with irish cream icing, middle tier is carrot cake with cream cheese icing and the top is lemon with lemon buttercream. All covered in chocolate fondant. As I have the cake right here in front of me, I can honestly say, it looks MUCH MUCH nicer than the photo can show.
