Thanks to the talent and patience of my friend, Kim Brown, I made this today! Ella wanted a Hello Kitty themed party. You may or may not remember the Barbie cake I made for her (was it?) last year. She loved it, anyway. This year I am actually proud to display my work! With tremulous hands I worked the icing. I feel like this is a jumping-off point for me and I can branch out and look for other (simple!) cakes to make for future birthdays. Hooray for me!
The talented Kim. I told her, "I want to be hands on so I am actually doing it, but I want you to talk me through it." She was a great teacher. I know that on the inside she must have been itching to grab the bag away from me and make it perfection, but she didn't let on.
