Birthday Fun

It was my coworker's birthday, and I wanted to try something a little bit different for the cake, so I made strawberry cream cheese frosting with yellow cake. It was easy and really tasty. I looked for a recipe and it said to add 1/2 cup of mashed strawberries(drained)  and blend into the cream cheese frosting. It was so nice to bake something again, I love being in the kitchen :)
I added bits of chunky strawberry in between the frosted layers of cake and had fun with a little heart shaped garnish.

I used a small paring knife to make the heart shape. I think I will make more fruit shapes in the future it's just too cute :)


I also had a drawing in mind for a card, that I spent a couple days sketching out by hand, and after many failed attempts, I did a quick digital sketch and was finally happy with the result.




I just love birthdays and making people feel special. Have you made anything fun for friend's birthdays lately? Happy Tuesday to you!

Floral Print Excitement

I'm not much of a girly girl but I am sucker for a floral print. Most of my favorite clothes have some kind of floral or abstract patter...
