An Aunt's Gift

Saturday was all about getting ready for the big birthday party that we were having on Sunday. While Bob and I did yard work, Aunt Heather set out to make her first Wilton Character Cake for the birthday girl.

Each time I came in for a cold drink, the cake was progressing. First there were facial features.

Then skin and shoes.

Eventually all the colors were on...

...And as Elsie said, "Dora, Dora, Dora!"

Finally on Sunday, songs sung, candles blown, and wishes made...the best part :)

Most of the partiers left last night, and great-grandma goes home today, so it's back to work for me. I think I need a rest though.

Enjoy the day!
