Birthday's and Baptism's

My little baby turned 4! I'm not sure where the time has gone. It just seems like yesterday that I was losing sleep and wishing that she was out of diapers and able to walk and the fun independent things you look forward to with your precious little baby. Of course we eventually got what we wished for and were faced with newly discovered independence and then the terrible two's and then we're blessed even more with the terrible three's. So now as we dive into the 4's I look back and think about how much I miss all of those stages (of course I miss some more than others ;) but I've come to the conclusion that I really need to enjoy every moment with them. It just goes by so quickly. Because before I know it I will be sending them off to college and it will just be me and the hubby again.

Well last weekend we had her birthday party and we also had her baptized! It was quite a special day for all of us! And me being the cake person I am, I had to make a cake to celebrate each occasion. She has just recently gotten into barbies and decided that she wanted a barbie cake. Now I'm not a big fan of the doll kit cakes! I think most of them look like you stuck a doll in a mound of icing up to her ta ta's. Nothing against the decorators, it's just a bad design. So I went about making my own "skirt" and using an actual doll that the birthday girl can have as a gift after the party. I'm going to post a tutorial on how I made the skirt sometime this week.

For the baptism cake, I went simple and used a cross and the ribbon roses, her middle name is rose so it was very fitting.

Now for those of you wondering how I have been feeling, I have been doing a lot better. Not 100%, but much better. Thanks again for all of your thoughts and prayers. It means so much!

Happy Caking!
Julie :D

  4. Glad you are feeling better! I also agree with you on the doll cakes (it doesn't help that the doll pics are straight from the 50's) but yours looks great.
