Una Bella Torta Per Una Bella Sorella... A Pretty Cake For A Pretty Sister...

We celebrated Anna's Birthday with a family dinner.  The cake was pretty and sweet,  just like Anna. I decorated in soft colors that matched the cake,  and a sweet bird theme,  because Anna likes birds.  The cake was surrounded in  handmade decorations resembling  Ribbon Pinwheels  which I made  using Gum Paste,  and placed a White Chocolate Vintage  Button  in the center.   I lightly painted the Pinwheels and Buttons using  pastel Luster Dust and Edible Glitter We definitely like things to sparkle around here... Nicola's birthday was last week so we celebrated him too,  but the girls always get top billing,  because the boys don't care about their birthday's the way we girls do  : ) .  We had a great time ...
