fun weekend!

Yesterday was Dee’s birthday. She and Pia bought a house this year and it has an above-ground pool, so it was a bit of a pool party. I decided to make a cake to celebrate:

Firefly helped me out. It was her idea to put little wet footprints on the steps–which were made out of gumpaste and were a two-person job to put together, let me just tell you:

P8010009-2

Firefly made the green noodle and the red floater for the can of Bud that I made (which was also her idea), and I made a raft and beach ball, all out of fondant:

She even put the little hole in the ends of the noodle. The water was just a thin layer of piping gel that I colored blue:

I got lots of great comments about it!

Today we slept in a bit, then went out to meet some friends’ week-old baby. I had promised the new mom a cake a while ago and hadn’t made good yet, so I thought this would be a great opportunity. New parents can always use something to fill their bellies, right? She wanted fondant with circles, so I gave her that and threw in some hearts to celebrate the occasion:

It was a six-inch cake and super easy, and I got to spend lots of time holding (and photographing) this little beauty:
