Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday. I won't tell you how old she is. (Pretty old. :P) And being the kind (poor) and loving (crafty) daughter that I am, I made her a cake. It's chocolate fudge with buttercream frosting covered in fondant*. I hope she likes it! First I made the "Happy Birthday" cookies. I'm really enjoying my 100 cookie cutters!

Then I made three 8"-round cakes and two 5"-round cakes. I stacked and iced them, then rolled out the fondant and threw it on. I glued on the cookie letters using some left over frosting.

I dyed a piece of fondant red for the top because it was looking a little plain. Then I added some crazy candles and I was done! It only took 5 hours! I think I consumed about 1000 calories while making this, so I need to go workout now.

  1. I love the cake. You did an awesome job - if the biotech thing does not work out you can be a baker. Aunt J
