My life is like a recurring birthday, it's full of cake:

     Last month it was my friend Bella's birthday and in my typical fashion, I celebrated by baking a cake! Bella's little brother, Jonas, helped me with the process and I'm so glad he was around because I truly couldn't have done it without him. Last year I made Bella an elegant four layer pink ombre cake that I decorated with fresh elements from my garden (seen here). This year she wanted a blue cake so I decided to go in a completely different direction from last year's frilly girlishness. I knew I was baking for a crowd so instead of stacking many cakes (labor intensive) I baked two cakes in large casserole dishes for a more casual and easy to serve vibe. After frosting the cakes with a home made icing, I layered fresh fruits and used chocolate covered sunflower seeds to spell out the birthday girl's name! Thank you again Jonas for being a great sous chef, I think the cake ended up being pretty stellar:

    I hope you are enjoying your summer!? I still can't believe that it is already mid- July as I still feel like the beginning of June. I don't want the summer ever to end :)
