Cake Stand, Paper Flowers, & Cupcakes – OH MY!

This morning, I started off with a simple task….bake a cake for my mom’s 65th birthday – who wanted a devils food cake with chocolate icing – a chocolate on chocolate as I call it. A cake you say? Most people would bake a cake, frost it, and sing happy birthday – but it’s me you’re talking about. I don’t do simple, it’s always above and beyond what the dictionary defines as simple. Today, I did it all….I made the cake stand from objects I had already in my house, I baked 2 dozen cupcakes and one small round cake, made paper flowers using items I already had on hand – and these pictures are representative of my hard work!

Tomorrow, I will post video tutorials on how to make your very own cake stand and paper flowers!
