Practicing the Basket Weave

It was my birthday on the 24th. I did not make my own cake, thank you very much. David got me a cake from Wal-Fart.

My dad and step-mom were coming over Saturday, and I wanted to make them some cake, since mine was almost gone (and had enough red food dye to stain fingers and teeth for days).

The two stacked cakes were kind-of lopsided.

It wasn't TOO bad.

I couldn't decide what to do on top. I was going to try and make some roses, but the icing was way to soft to attempt it. So, I just wrote Happy Birthday on it and added some little flowers with bows.

Mmmm. Almond Butter Cake with homemade strawberry filling and buttercream icing.
