College football season just started, and that means, for some reason, that food must be better on Saturdays than usual. In keeping with this practice, I promised to make something especially exciting for dessert if my husband did everything else, but I never really have time for that. I had an idea and thought it would look fancy and complicated, when it was really cheap, quick, and easy. So, I faked fancy.
This was weekend 2 of a pair of parties for sisters! Claire had a dolphin themed pool party last week, and this time it was Lauren's turn. She wanted an owl cake,which I loved, because my girls have never let me do one for them!
I was so happy to make this cake for a sweet little friend of the family. I haven't made a cake for anyone, other than my own family members, in years. Claire is such a sweet girl, but it was a really generous act for her friends in her Sunday school class that convinced me to make one for her. It also inspired me to go back to this 5 years dormant cake blog!
