I didn't have any cakes due the week of the 4th so I had some time to myself in the kitchen. Our neighborhood always has a big 4th of July party and a baking contest. Last year my cakeballs won so naturally I wanted to enter again!
My wonderful parents just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary last weekend and I wanted to give them a special little cake just for them. This was a 6-inch, double-layer, classic white cake with strawberry filling and buttercream icing. According to Google, the 40th anniversary is the ruby red anniversary so that explains the strawberry and red accents.
They never read this blog but I'll wish them a very happy anniversary anyway!
Decorating this cake reminded me that I've been doing this for a year now.....wow, time has flown by! A year ago I made my 2nd entry in this blog for my nephew, Tate's 6th birthday party. And here I am posting a picture of Tate's 7th birthday cake.
My sister-in-law made the cake, which was a chocolate chip cookie cake, and I decorated it how Tate wanted (his party was at a roller skating rink).
