Ok, I have summed up the rest of the part in one last post
I didn't get pictures of the process in making the cake,
I was at work while Mom and Dad did it.
But, it's a Zebra Cake!!
We decided it would be easier to melt the icing
and pour it over the top.
This was only half the icing,
we figured if we didn't let this much of it set up before putting the rest on
we would end up with a plate of frosting instead of an iced cake
Now we can pour the rest of the frosting on. :)
While mom is finishing the cake Dad and I go outside a put up the decorations
And since my mother would not appreciate a picture of the cluttered back porch on here,
this is the best picture I got of the back.
And these are the front porch decorations.
A better picture of the sign
The doorway in the Dining room
(the Steelers game was on in the background, and may I add that we won)
Ran out of pink zebra balloons, had to use the yellow
The finished cake!
The drink bar in the background is a bookshelf covered with table cloth,
it has more of the black ribbon and zebra ribbon taped to the front in different lengths.
All 23 (yes, zebra print) candles
It is at this time that I would like to say
that I did, in fact, blow them all out with one breath
The inside of the cake was done to look like zebra print
And it was served on zebra print plates
with chocolate swirl ice cream!
Just in case you didn't catch it, the theme was pink zebra print ;)
What will we blog about next?!?
