Everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25

Seeing Stars

Looks like a few cakes have gotten in under the radar, so I wanted to begin sharing some of those with y’all.  First is a sweet little birthday cake for 6 year old Gray.  This cake was designed to coordinate with the party invitation.

Gray wasn’t having a big party, so a tiered cake was out of the question.  To give his cake a little height, though, I added some colorful, gum paste ribbons and a big number 6 on top.

Around the sides of the cake I added various sized stars that I punched out of colored fondant.  My favorites are the big stars with the smaller stars punched out of the center.

I love the way this cake turned out!  Clean, simple lines, but far from boring because of the bright colors and fun stars.

This cake was a two-layer, 8” round, filled with buttercream, and covered with fondant.  It served approximately 20.
