Let us eat CAKE . . . Beautiful CAKE!!

Ok, so I promised about a month ago I would do a post on my daughter's 1st cake using the Cricut Cake mini machine that she got for her birthday. Well, here it is! Better late than never, right???

Here is my oldest daughter making her first cake for the occasion of her Dad's 40th birthday:

The fitting of her homemade marshmallow fondant
(thank you, MPS Robyn for the recipe!)

Trimming the excess with one of her Cricut Cake tools . . .

Then applying "The Big 40" phrase cut from the
Life's A Party Cartridge made with gum paste.
She used black gel (the edibles version of Stickles-LOL)
 for the black outlining . . .

Voila! Such a beautiful cake!! It tasted great too!
We had colored flame candles to enhance her wonderful design!

He may not seem like he's happy (too bright of flash, Jen!), but my husband was very happy with his daughter's homemade cake! Hooray! We now have another baker in the house!!
