It all just blew my mind.
The plan was for us to cut the cake once all of our extended family got here, before dinner. About 22 people and 10 kids were here. They showed up at 3 pm and I could not bring myself to just cut into the cake right away. It needed to be the centerpiece to our appetizers and meal. Everyone appropriately ohhhhed and awwwwed over it. Nora was ecstatic with her Frozen cake. And Grandma Cindy was the complete “ah shucks” with her talents. Not thinking it was a big deal and wanting the attention off of her. Now I know where Dale gets his allergic reaction to attention and praise. “He got it from his Mama”
Nora had a wonderful time with family. We celebrated her greatness and turning 7. She received some thoughtful gifts all in her interests of reading and anything art. She wore her Frozen Princess Elsa Costume the whole time because, why not? Once we did dig into the cake it was AMAZING! Not only can she decorate cakes, but she can cook them to be just as yummy as any high class bakery. We have encouraged her to start her own business. She would rock it big time. But, she said she wants to do it for fun and not work. I still think after spending 16 hours on this cake and it’s various stuff, she should be compensated. All she would accept was some hugs and praise. She could be making big bucks for her creations.
If anyone has any specific details and questions about this cake, let me know. I will try my best to answer or ask the talented lady herself and get back to you. I tried to do my best and at least break down this cake for you all. I think this is one of her all time masterpieces for sure.

That is a wrap on the Frozen party Extravaganza! Next week I will be sharing some updates on the laundry room. We did a few crazy things in there already. We finally have the washer and dryer back in. I have never been so excited to do laundry after a week of it out of there. Oh yeah. what we did needed the room cleared. So excited to get back to home decor and other DIY wonderfulness. Crafts are awesome, but more heavy duty DIY is my first love. Well my first actual love is Dale, whom I got to celebrate Valentine’s day with last night. We beat the crowds. Today we are having a Valentine’s party with family and friends. All about games, cup cakes, homemade personal pizzas, we are breaking out the game Twister, hopefully no body parts will be broken in the process. Unless us oldies get involved, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”. We will probably end the evening with a camp out in the living room with our trio of Littles. We are kid approved this holiday.
|Love this guy, bring on the goofiness!|
How awesome was my Mother in Law’s cake? Are you lucky enough to be a cake decorator too? What are your plans for Valentine’s day?
