We had our family get together last night. One of the birthday folks didn't make it, but we had 3 of them. What a great time we had. Of course the grands had to blow out the candles, but that was ok.
The birthday people:
Here is the BIG cake for the family reunion. I am taking a break so I can see it with fresh eyes after lunch. The candles will go on top so I don't want to add a lot more there. It is 4 layers (staggered), 4.5 pounds of icing (so far). I had... Read more
