Dora & Diego

My sister-in-law contacted me last week.  "We're coming down Easter weekend. Can we get together for K's birthday?"  Of course!  "Where can I order a Dora cake?" she asks.

Uh.  Me.  Hello?  :)

"I'll do Dora and...the monkey. What's his name again?"  I ask.  "Boots."

Then I get another text: "She'd like to know if you can add Diego, too."  Of course I can.

I spent the next few nights not only prepping this cake, but getting the Good Friday cake ready.

Dora's cousin Diego and his Rescue Pack, which was attached to his back later.

Boots




My sister-in-law, her husband (my hubby's brother) and their two daughters were down Thursday & Friday at a hotel in Orlando and then drove up Saturday (K's actual birthday) to spend the night at our place and celebrate.  When they arrived, I was STILL putting the cake together.  I had their two young daughters help cut out and arrange the flowers on the cake for me.  They were shy at first, but then really opened up to me and loved helping out.



Happy 4th Birthday to our Adorable Niece K!!

Easter


Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, for a meeting with our Grow Group (church small groups) this past Good Friday.

Cake was GONE in 5 minutes.  

One boy said "This is the best carrot cake I've ever had."  One of his younger brothers said "I don't like carrot cake!"  He had seconds. He would have had thirds, except his mother interceded.  :)
