18 things i love about roxanne

You are sensible. You're good with your money. You love your social life. You are neat and clean. You hate clutter. You have great fashion sense. You love your sisters. You love your brother. You can cook quite well. You eat healthy. You are so darn smart. You can do hard things. You are self motivated. You have many many friends. You are a deep thinker. You can work hard. You were a gorgeous baby. You were a delightful two year old. You are a pretty easy teenager, too. You are independent. You have big plans for your college years. You have big plans for your life. (ok, that is more than 18, but you're just that wonderful!)
Happy Birthday!!!!
After 20+ years of really ugly birthday cakes in this house, I'm making an effort to break away and make some fun cakes this year. I used fondant for the first time today. Although there is a learning curve that I haven't quite mastered yet, it's pretty much like playing with play dough.

Wow, I am impressed. That cake is gorgeous and I love the candles! I need to have you teach me how to use fondant. Does fondant taste good?

Cynthia said...

no, not bad, but doesn't taste great either. There was a lot of fondant peeled off onto the plates when we were all done.

What a FUN cake!! Good show, Cindy! Congrats to Roxanne, she's officially an adult! It sounds like she's got a pretty good handle on life already. Good parenting tends to do that for a kid. ;)
