cake cake cake

my dear friend janelle had her birthday party this weekend and i was in charge of birthday cake. well, i thought she needed two cakes. after all, a girl turns 30 only once, right? so for starters i made erica's strawberry cake with fresh picked strawberries. i definitely had the strawberries. it was a HUGE hit. my goodness.
and since my original plan was to make a chocolate cake, i did just that. a sour cream chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream icing. i couldn't keep lucy away from it as you can see. i think she was quite fascinated by the sugar crystal flower. aren't most little girls?
i hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

p.s. did anyone else watch cranford on pbs? so wonderful.

I love me some cake...those look awesome! As for Cranford... I know we've been TiVo'ing some Masterpiece stuff lately (They had a Jane Austen marathon the last couple of months) -- we may have gotten Cranford, but if not, I'll check it out! Yeah, I know, a guy who likes the period pieces...but what can I say, I do! ...but I also loved IRON MAN. :-)

looks like it turned out great. i think you need to frost my next strawberry cake; mine always looks so messy!
