Sweet 16

I didn't go shopping today, didn't spray another shopper with pepper spray to get a black Friday deal, heck I didn't even shop online (yet).  I did, however, go to Walmart to pick up a prescription for my baby boy who has Strep.  I took him to one of those immediate care clinics and from the time I left my house until the time I got home, it took THREE hours.  Hardly a minute.  Regardless, he's now medicated and hopefully on the mend.

The rest of the day (well 4 hours anyway) was spent making a cake for Bianca's daughter, Tracy.  She's turning 16 on Sunday and I had the honor of making her cake.  Now mind you, this is only the fourth cake I've ever made and only my second time using fondant icing so it's NOT perfect, but I am happy.  I hope Tracy is happy too.



The only thing Tracy requested is that the cake be blue.  I chose my favorite shade of blue (you can see my inspiration).



My fondant isn't smooth and perfect, but I was satisfied with my two tier cake (a first time for that).  It's not as crooked as it appears in this picture either.  I promise!



Bianca asked for polka dots so I added those and also the white "balls" to hide all my imperfections add a little more decoration.

Finally, I added the bow (my least favorite part) and called it a day cake.



Happy 16th birthday Tracy, may they all be as sweet!
