    Best birthday cake ever!

    My daughter surprised me with this cake. She is a pastry chef and has started making custom cakes hoping to start her own business.Name:  10011884_10202344164464192_1697672625_o.jpg

    Awesome cake! I would have a hard time cutting into it with such wonderful decoration. You daughter is sure to have a great career ahead of her.

    Wow she did a wonderful job!
    I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!

    The cake is beautiful and looks delicious, although I would be hesitant to cut into it because it's so pretty. Good luck to your daughter with her plans.

    Oh Yummmmmy, love this. She will go far! I assume she is keeping pictures of all she makes for her portfolio.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    If your daughter puts this much creativity and love into every cake she makes, her business will be booming.

    That cake is very pretty. My niece is going to pastry chef school. She is in her first year. She was making pretty things when she was still in high school. This is a cake she made last year for Easter.

    Ditto what she said. Beautiful! Hope she takes lots of photos! If she hasn't she needs to work on her portfolio!

    WOW! WOW! WOW! May your daughter's business grow and expand! There is a cake business here in my town...they make 250-300 cakes for Thanksgiving and then again for Christmas. The prices are way out of my comfort level for a plain cake...not decorated as yours is...so it can be done! Good going! And Happy Birthday!
