Making Cakes Fun!


                                                                Somedays just call for cake!

                                                                    Why not make it fun?

                                                I had a large supply of posies left over from here.


                                          They were just the colors I was looking for.

                                            I took them apart and made these below.


                                                          Laid them on some string.


                                  Thank goodness Madison had her booksack handy....ha!


                                                       Then I glued those babies down!


                                                                            Cute!


                                                  I used some fruit kabob stick thingamagies.

                                                                 Tied on a cute bow.


                                                      Ya'll this is soooo much fun to make!

                                                                         So easy !


                                          I made a box spice cake...no homemade here..ha!


                                                    Talk about making your home smell great!

                                                            I then stood back and smiled :)

                                                                 It looked so sweet there...

                                                              I felt so Susie Homemaker'ish ..


                                                             Then Kaylee came home....


                                           Got all excited because I made Cake


And then she found out it was spice!!!

Ugh!

Mom ....you know I hate spice!

Looks like more cake for me...

Saaaaweet!

  12. Susy- I love your blog! I've not had much time for blog perusing and reading lately but having a sick day, I did today. I was so pleased to see your blog still feels like a blog, where one feels like they are taking a seat right with you. So many of my favorites have become so commercial feeling and lost that specialness. Thank you for keeping your blog welcoming and warm.

  18. I love this! What a darling cake. And a darling daughter. She is so beautiful. I personally love spice cake (is that cream cheese frosting?), so I'm with you woman!

  19. The cake is adorable . . . but nothing compared to your kitchen . . . and surely nothing compared to your daughter. You are blessed three times with adorableness.

    Fondly,

  21. We're singing the same song. I made a pumpkin spice bundt cake yesterday (just sprinkled powdered sugar on top for "icing") and before I turned around twice I'd eaten about 5 slices out of it. It was autumn in my mouth.

    Love your little festive touches!
