fondant night

I went to a cake decorating party tonight and made this brithday cake!


  1. LAUREN! You did a fantastic job! I haven't heard of a cake decorating party, but I think it sounds pretty delicious!

  2. AWESOME!!!! Doing my job blog post tonight! Week 1 went well!

  3. wow! looks great lauren! i've always wanted to get into cake decorating...but i've got so many hobbies and projects already that if i started one more thing bobby's head just might explode! i think you've got a real knack for it.

  4. I've never heard of a cake decorating party! Classes, yes. Party, no. You did a GREAT job!!! Hope it tasted as good as it looks! Have a great weekend!


  5. You must explain the party. I have never heard of one either. Is this something I have to look forward to?


  6. Yes, this is definately something to look forward too! A friend of a friend is a cake decorator, and she hosted this event. She made the cakes and rolled out the fontant. We got to decorate the cake from there. It was really fun!

    I made this particular cake for two of my neices that have b-days in July. I'll be seeing then in a couple of weeks. The cakes can be frozen up to 6 months too.

    It's actually a lot easier than it looks. I'd love to try it again!

  7. Here comes a new addiction! Trust me it's addicting!

  8. Looks awesome, but I'd have to taste it to make a truly well-informed decision :)

  9. Is this someone in Tampa that does this? I love this idea and live in the area.

  10. Lauren, I found you through the Crimquads blog! We had a family member that had an experience much like yours. I will put you and your family in our prayers. On a different note, that is an awesome looking cake. I never can make them look right!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
