My Talented Daughter

OMG... I just have to share with you all, the gorgeous cake my daughter Lauren made and decorated in her home ec class. Didn't it turn out AMAZING..

They had to pick a theme for a childs 10th birthday party and Lauren chose Alice in wonderland. She found these images on the net and asked me if I wouldn't mind colouring them for her. Of course I was more than happy to help. She then set about making 76 yes 76 paper roses with my rolled rose die. She punched out some grass and cut out some of my Magnolia doohickey branches and added some red hearts to them. You'll notice that not all the roses are red. Some are white and some have just a hint of red. This was to give the idea of "painting the roses red".. Clever huh!! Her teacher was extremely impressed with her effort as am I. It seems such a pity to have to actually eat the cake.

Well done my beautiful girl.

Hugs xo
