I decided that I would do the same theme that I painted on the walls in her room. I spent many weeks last summer as a very large, swollen and sweaty pregnant woman painting these critters. I was thrilled with them when they were done, and thought that these bunnies were worth repeating.
I wish I had taken pictures of each step of the cake assembly, but I did not. I had the presence of mind only to keep running over to my computer to tweet about every step in the process (www.twitter.com/StaryNiteDesign), but I failed to take the photos. In my defense though, twitter is addicting!
I would like to thank all who supported me on Twitter on Saturday when things got rough with my first batch of pudding.
Anyway - here are some photos to enjoy. I will definitely make another hand painted cake for birthday number two!
These are some photos of her room:
That were the inspiration for the cake:
And I did a personal cupcake for Chloe... the "butterfly" that's on the wire and supposed to be flying above is a little lame, but it was getting really late on Saturday night and I really had to get to bed!
