Zebra stripe cake

In mid December my hubby's cousin contacted me and asked me if I could help her out and make a cake for her mom's big birthday coming up. (she was turning 39 with 11 years experience. ;)) So after the holidays we got together for a little consult to discuss what she had in mind. The theme of the party was 39 again. It was a surprise party. Her mom loves animal print, particularly zebra print, so I was asked if I could do a cake with zebra print.

The inside of the cake was alternating layers of white and devils food chocolate. I did a strawberry filling in between each layer and covered it in buttercream frosting. Then I covered it with white fondant and did zebra stripes out of black fondant. I finished it off with purple ribbon and a sign on top (made with dowels, and SU cardstock) that said 39 again! Here is the finished product. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out. Not bad for my first fondant cake in a couple of years.

Christmas card 2010

I know this is way late, but here is this years Christmas card. I made it before Christmas so I didn't have an updated family photo to go with it. So I will include this years Christmas Eve photo as well for those who want to see it.

Anyhow, for the Christmas card I used My Digital Studio from SU.
