Living the Sweet Life

This post goes out to you, Dianne- Happy "30th" Birthday!!!

Dianne celebrated a big birthday milestone this year and I was so excited to make her cake. Her kitchen is light pink, brown and cupcake themed so I wanted a cake that would go along with that adorable theme! The catch was that I wanted her to help me because we've both been dying to do a themed cake like this, but her party was a surprise. I had to pass it off as a last minute cake order for a school bake sale.
Everything was a success and we had fun making it!
For those of you who don't know, Dianne is my future-mother-in-law and may partner in crime/cake. She is so crafty and is always on hand to help me out. She's graduated from a frosting "Colorist" to a fondant "Detailer". She also comes on almost all of my wedding cake deliveries and many other set ups. I honestly don't know what I would do without her, her assistance, her expanding cake decorating skills, her oven and freezer and her mild
manners at times when mine are not so mild :)
Here is her cake. It said "Live the Sweet Life" in Italian around the top tier:
