Too Sweet (preview for you, Shannon)

This weekend, we joined the Knox Family to celebrate sweet Bradon’s first birthday.


Shannon asked me to make the birthday cake, which I happily agreed to.
I love making cakes — and I especially like trying new things.

Bradon had a Sesame Street theme, so we agreed on Elmo.
She didn’t really care what  I did.

I have to say it went a lot smoother than I expected.
Two layers of marble cake, fresh butter cream. It was severely delicious.

I also made him a Smasher – a little cake just for him.076

He was a little hesitant to dive in, at first.

He got the hang of it quickly though.

My largest feat was transporting the thing – it was huge. I definitely couldn’t ask Carys to hold it in her lap for the 45-minute drive. Thankfully, it survived the trip…only to be demolished by a few hungry people a few hours later.

Happy Birthday, Bradon!!!


Now, off to my next cake challenge this week: Cailyn’s 3rd birthday!
Can’t wait to share that one with you….stay tuned.
