I am still doing everything but sewing. Though for right now, I love it! My husband's family (now my own family) visited us last week and we all had a blast! We went to the arcades, shopped a little, had a BBQ, swam at the pool, and celebrated the birthday of my nephew Savon.
He turned 7, and is an especially creative little one. He likes music and Superman. He prefers playing the drums, but he also likes talking on microphones, and playing guitar. So, since I made my first cake for my little princess' birthday in May, I volunteered to make Savon's cake as well.
His mom and I decided on a guitar since I couldn't find a Superman cake tin anywhere. Here is a pic of the color scheme:
Let me tell you...I literally decorated this cake in one hour because I was hurrying to get it done so we could all go to the pool! I say this because it is not a good idea to hurry cake decorating, because you need a steady hand. But it all worked out! Though I was in a hurry, I somehow entered this peaceful place while decorating, and here is how the cake turned out:
I followed the same method I used for my daughter's cake, and piped in the frosting instead of using starbursts. I think it makes the image look more continuous.
Anyhow, the birthday boy loved his cake!
You can always tell someone loves a cake creation when they don't want to cut it. Well, we finally did cut it, but his mom made sure to get lots of pics beforehand!
