This past weekend I had a graduation party to attend. The graduation of my boyfriend's younger sister. When Matt and I started dating she was still a little girl, I swear. They grow up so fast!
Remember when I mentioned I have a variety of other skills to fall back on in case engineering doesn't work out?
Well we can add another one to that list. Cake Decorator.
That's right, I decorate and make cakes. I really enjoy it too. Maybe someday I will retire from engineering and open up a cake shoppe.
Here's the cake I made.
Please ignore scary looking brother in background.
And here's a step-by-step so you can repeat!
Yup put it in the freezer and wait a while. Make sure you do the same with your top small cake too.
Add some pretty pink zebra stripes! Draw them on with a piping bag and round tip. Don't go for perfectly shaped stripes, just go with it.
Go with the flow baby.
Uh, then smooth those babies out too.
Plop your top cake onto your bottom cake.
Write "Happy Birthday" or any other phrase you can think of. Write the birthday girl's name on top.
Don't misspell it. Or write something like Happy Bathday because you weren't paying attention. That only happened once and I was probably 12. But if you do happen to make a mistake pull the frosting off with a toothpick.
Finally, stand back and admire your cake. Smile to yourself for doing such a good job.
Have your momma take picture of you with your pride and joy. Which your brother ruins for a second time.
