happy birthday cake

I am adding this cake to TODAYS CREATIVE BLOG 
If you like anything Crafty you need to visit every day (like I do)

Well I have spent most of my day in the kitchen today & very little in the craft room. My daughter needed a cake for a bithday at work & asked for my help. Well .....I made the cake while she napped! Oh well I love to bake but I SHOULD NOT be eating stuff like that!!! :) SOOO I didn't mind at all. This is the most delicious cake! It is dark chocolate with peppermint butter cream frosting!!! YUMMO!!!! The recipe is from the book "The Cake Doctor"  Instead of frosting decorations I made these little paper ones to stick on.....so cute!!!!

This is a close up of the decorations

The paper is really really old from denami,  punches are giga flower by marvy & scallop circle from SU. Stamp set I used is from PTI. The "40" was chippboard from my stash that was glittered with MS glitter. The sticks are "candy" sticks from Michaels. The fronts & back of the flowers are the same. That's it for today!!! Now that I have the kitchen all cleaned up....my craft room is in serious need of my attention!!!! Thanks for todays visit!!!

Oh, yum-yum -- think I need a piece of that for my birthday, tho you accidentally got my age off, but only by a couple years. Ha!!! Seriously, it looks sooo pretty & I can clearly imagine how fabulous it tastes! Your daughter is a lucky girl, but I know she already knows!!! ;-)
