Summer Birthday girl

I love to make my kids birthday cakes. Am I good at it, depends on who you ask I guess but it is one of the few creative things I enjoy and I am forced to finish. HAHAHA If you saw the list of unfinished projects around my house you would totally understand. WE have had sand castle cakes, scuba diver cakes, dolphins, Dora, Littlest pet shops, etc. A few times I have actually purchased store bought ones and once let my mom's friend make my oldest a barbie doll cake, but I just feel guilty that I didn't make the cake myself. I like doing it.

So this year I saw on the cover of Woman's Day magazine a really cute summer cake I couldn't resist. It was a watermelon and perfect my 5 yo July birthday. What says summer better than a big ole slice of watermelon? right!

I was just happy to get a pic of her smiling. Just a couple hours later we went to the ER because she had been in pain all day with a tummy ache. Thankfully it wasn't anything serious. Glad she had a great birthday and I can't wait to see what the other girls will want their cakes to be in Oct and Nov. :D
