Last week John and I were at his Dad’s house and I was talking to Hannah about her upcoming birthday party. She told me all about the pool party they were planning and the crafts they were going to make. Then I asked about the cake. Patti (John’s stepmom) mentioned that she thought about making and icecream cake (The one with ice cream bars and magic shells…. ohh I should make that soon.) But she didn’t seem too excited about it. All of a sudden a light bulb went off and she said “Nina, you make cakes!” I laughed and said I’d be happy to help.
So, yesterday Hannah came over and we made her cake. She helped with everything, mixing the batter, molding the figures, piping the grass… the entire idea was her idea too.. I just helped with technique ideas. Patti dropped Hannah off at my house around 11:30 at 5:30 we took her home with this!! The party will be held in their back yard and will include swimming in their Blue Blob pool. There will be 7 girls total at the party (Hannah and Amanda and 5 friends).
If you look close you can see the “earthquake”. The car ride wasn’t so kind to the cake. Next time I make a cake, I will definetly bring some extra icing for patchwork. But they have a big “10” candle that will go in front of the hole and you won’t even be able to see it.
Here are some up close pictures.
We made each little girl that will be at the pool party. Hannah is the one floating on the raft (it looks like a raft they own) and she is sparkly since “she’s the birthday girl”. 🙂 Amanda (our other sister) is the one in pink with blonde hair.
