Suitcase Birthday Cake for me!!

1st in TOP 9 of Foodbuzz, on the 28th of September 2011.

On the 25th of September I celebrated my birthday.

In this post I was thinking to write a ton of things about my feelings and thoughts, but when I sat down to create the post I decided that I just wanted to show my cake.

This is the first cake I ever made for me. I am so happy I created something just for me. MY BIRTHDAY CAKE!!!!

A suitcase! Does this say anything to you???????
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Below you will be able to find the decorating process.
Among other ingredients, I used cocoa powder and icing sugar to make the brown fondant.











It was not hard to make, and I really enjoyed it.  From now on, I decided that each year a special cake will be created from me, for myself with lots of love!!!

  32. Here are my stay skinny tips :)

    Don't eat the desserts you make (SO hard)...but I do try samples.

    Exercise 5-7 days a week. I try to get on the treadmill nearly every day...and go to yoga 2-3 times a week.

    Hope you've been having a great week...I always love stopping by and seeing your masterpieces :)

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
