When you wish upon a star…

A couple weeks ago, I found out my boyfriend’s mom and step-dad were coming to visit us in Nashville. Great, I thought, I always love company. What I didn’t find out until they were on their way here was that it was also his mom’s birthday.

Since I’m all about decorating cakes these days, I thought it was only appropriate that I made one for her. Unfortunately it was already Sunday evening, we were on our way to a friend’s house for dinner, and they were arriving the next day!

So in a panic, I went back home, gathered my baking supplies, and brought them along to our friend’s. Thankfully he didn’t mind me borrowing his kitchen to whip up my cakes after dinner. Half way done…

After we hung out for a bit, I packed up my cakes and went home. Now for the hard part - the decorating. I worked for hours, and at 1:30 a.m. I finally finished.

When she saw her cake the next day, she loved it. And I was so glad I took the time to make it for her. Another cake success, I’d say…

Happy birthday Shelby! Hope your birthday wishes come true.
