the plan:

to throw a sweet little dinner party
for my brother & his wife, who are
expecting their 1st baby…after a good
meal, they’ll cut into a cake to find out
if they are having a boy or a girl……

as a busy working mother, i need a little help…so my mom
was nice enough to bake the secret cake & bring it to the dinner…

tyring to find inspiration for decorating i turned
to one of my favorite magazines DONNA HAY

this was my decorating result…..

and the official baby cakes result-IT’S A GIRL

& i for one cannot wait to meet her


congratulations lauren & jon….xoxo

a little more sweetness...

    Congratulations! what a beautiful cake!
    and love the last picture with the pink balloon.
    But did you mean "they're expecting their first baby" instead of "their first party"?

    Would love to make this cake for my friend's baby shower - she's also having a baby girl. Would your mom be willing to share the cake recipe? Thank you ever so much!
