    I've loved that cake for a long time. Never tried to make it though, but the photo of it is serious inspiration for me. LOL
    Love the match game too! I have it saved in my "must make someday" file.

    I saw you mention zenhabits before and was curious. So, I checked it out and have been hooked since. It's fantastic. Thanks for the share.

    Are you going to be making that cake in about a year from now? It is beautiful and, I bet, super delicious.

    Thanks for sharing the cake. I am planning a baby shower for a close friend and if she finds out it's a girl (fingers crossed!) that may be the perfect dessert for her shower!

    Hello Alli,
    Just letting you know this is the same cake I created for two of our three kids second birthdays...not hard at all. Use the correct pastry bag and piping for ribbon and it is all a smooth move. Enjoy the moments....

    Ali, if you have a Borders Books near you check to see if they are having a party to 'celebrate' the The Very Hungry Catepillar. It's what Borders is doing to celebrate one of you favortie books.

    I've used http://www.familymemories.com/ photo book software to create 5 books - the quality of the printing is amazing and I would fully recommend them for creating a coffee table book, wedding book, family photo book or whatever. Great stuff! Your pictures are truly heartwarming.

    I also made the cake for my baby girl's dedication party (she's also called Anna!) and it was actually really easy! And the icing is AMAZING to work with - it's my new favorite. However, add the coloring in tiny, tiny amounts... mine ended up a bit toxic pink!
