It is trimmed in silver ribbon on the bottom of each cake and there is design work around each of the cakes. The cakes were white, chocolate and marble. They were beautiful.

Castle Birthday Cake

This cake was for my granddaughter's birthday. I had a lot of fun making this cake. I am always up for a good challenge. It actually wasn't too bad to make. Wilton give you pretty good instructions on how to put it together. However, I did do a few things different than what they said to do. The cake was really a hit. Everyone loved it. I am sure I will be making it again sometime.

Summer Time Fun=Sweet Sketch1

I am posting this sketch for Sweet Sketch Wednesday. My sister has started a new blog and I am really excited about her doing this. She is so talented and has lots of fun ideas to share with everyone. I hope that you will stop by and see it.

Summer Time is a wonderful time, Picnics, swimming, camping and lots of fun family outings. And, of course, lots of good food. I love all the fresh produce. There is nothing like picking fresh strawberries, apples, and tomatoes out of the garden and eating them fresh. It makes me hungry to think about it.
