My cutie-pie niece Micah turned 8 and got baptized
this last weekend. James was lucky enough to get
Saturday off so we made a weekend out of it visiting
his and my parents. I asked my sister if I could make
Micah a cake because lets face it, I never get the chance
to make cakes and they are my favorite thing to make.
Micah's favorite colors are blue and green.
Micah loves white cake with white frosting. So the top cake
is a homemade white cake with a caramel frosting filling and the
bottom cake is a butter pecan cake also with a caramel filling.
(mostly cause I was too lazy to figure out another filling, but
I figured anything is better with caramel.) The cake is frosted
with a buttercream frosting, then covered in fondant.
It turned out to be much more work than anticipated...haha!
But I loved it! I finished it up at my mom's house and
my sister in law (who is awesome at decorating cakes herself)
helped me "glue and paste" all the flowers and stripes and stuff.
We had a blast decorating to Taylor Swift in the background!

It was a great weekend and so fun to see and
visit with family. James and I both just love our in-laws
and realize how lucky we are to have great parents and families!
