I Would Now Like To Show You The Finished Cake

First, if you have no idea what I'm talking about, go here.

Now that we're all caught up, here's a picture of the finished product.

Um, yeah. That's a cupcake. From a box. With canned icing. And "princess pearl" sprinkles.

Apparently I'm not a cake decorator. Especially since the "cake" cost me about $40, a dozen eggs, an entire day, some not-so-nice looks from my husband, and some hilarious laughter with my neighbor, Michelle, who is completely correct in her "Robyn is crazy" assessment.

But you know what?

This little nugget had a great birthday. And that's what counts, right?

Just so you know...I would totally eat that cake! I bet Little Miss loved it, too!

LOL - sounds like there's more to that story...and totally sounds like something that would happen to me!

I think it's PERFECT. Besides, I would've had to hate you if you'd actually pulled it off, and how could you live with that??

I LOVE that sweet little face. If she was happy?? That's ALL that matters - though I would have liked to see a picture :)

big smile when i saw that because it didn't come up as quickly as the cake in the post below and i thought, wow if she can do that i'm amazed! i'm still amazed that you tried. :)
