No time to blog due to serious party planning…

Posted October 25th, 2008 under Around the house, Clara and Libby, Life by MicheleP.

We’ve planned, shopped, cleaned and baked…and now we are ready for a party!!

The biggest challenge was the cake. Libby wanted a Tinkerbell cake and Clara wanted a Belle cake. I didn’t think I was up for making two cakes so I ordered one cake with flowers and put plastic Tinkerbells on it – and voila – a Tinkerbell cake!

Now, for the Belle cake, I had seen photos of the princess/barbie cake online and thought that would be just perfect for Belle. I gathered everything I needed and baked the cake(s) last night and then today began to shape them into Belle.

Here is Belle – steady as she goes!

Putting the finishing touches on

And here she is: Considering my only previous cake experience is a basic Betty Crocker in a 9X13, I’m feeling pretty darn good about how it turned out!

Our own Belle and Tinkerbell are ready for their guests – be sure to check back later for a full party review (con muchos fotos, naturalmente).
