Cake fun...

Molli's cake

McKenzee's cake

My Cake

Well...McKenzee, Molli, and I decided to take a cake decorating class! Like we don't have enough to do already! I took the Wilton class when McKenzee was a baby...21 yrs. ago. I wanted to brush up on my skills and the girls decided to go along with me.
Last night was our 2nd night and we got to decorate our 1st cake. I'll try and post the progress as we go along...
