Golf Cake aka Happy Birthday Nathan!

Well, It was Nathan's birthday yesterday. Luckily I have recently acuired the new skill of cake decorating so I made him a cool birthday cake! Hooray! For those who don't know...Nathan got some golf clubs for his birthday, so I thought this cake was especially fitting.


Sand Trap:

Water with drowned balls (Nathan wants me to assure you that they aren't his!):


Golf ball border:

Yep. That's it. Hooray cake!

Our Garden, Take 2

As I was talking to my mom about my cool cake from previous post, she complained how I haven't put up any updated pictures of our garden... So I went out and weeded. : ) And then took some pictures so that you can see the things that are growing!

This is my blister that I got after working for 2 hours...








Yellow Squash:


and Cucumber:

Some of our plants didn't grow so well, so I gave them some food and hope that they decide to grow sometime soon!!!

My first REAL cake

So my friend has a birthday. That day is today. SOOOOOO, I decided to make her a cake. This is the first time that I have completed a whole cake and I think it turned out pretty well. The cake is chocolate with chocolate pudding in the middle. The frosting is cream cheese frosting from betty crocker : ) The roses are gum paste and the pink frosting is butter cream. Volia!

This is the cake at first.

These are the roses:

The mess I made:

And then I decided that I wasn't completely satisfied so I added some dots:

And it tasted pretty good too!

Now my problem is that Nathan's birthday is next week and I have NO idea what kind of cake to make him. Do you think he'll like roses too???
