I’m 23 today. I wanted to celebrate a little with you. :)
Here’s my cake. It’s funfetti with vanilla frosting, but I did something special:
I waited for the cake to cool, drew quadrants on with a butter knife and then used a mini rubber scraper to apply the 4 different colors. (I simply divided the frosting into four little bowls and mixed in three drops of the food coloring into each.) I did one color at a time and added the sprinkles in the coordinating colors as I went to deter any cross-color contamination. :)
It turned out neon and happy and looks way more complicated than it was and I love it! It also kind of matches my Christmas tree. My first big Christmas tree in my own place!
It’s colorblocked and funky. The ornaments are from target (and were super cheap). And it makes me very, very happy. I’m on the search for some purple lights to drape near the bottom. I think that would balance out the top nicely. Will keep you updated on that. :)
Because I’m happy and because I think this year will be awesome, I wanted to do some giveaways. I’ve been saving things for a fun giveaway for quite a while, so what better a time than today? In fact, I have so many favorite things that I’ve broken them up into 3 prize packs. Check them out:
