a pink candy cake!

We celebrated our daughters' birthdays at Powell's Sweet Shoppe, so it made sense that Charley (our oldest daughter) asked for a candy themed cake.


Charley requested chocolate cake (that's my girl!) . . . and pretty pink candies.

So I made a two-tier chocolate cake, and then frosted it with my favorite cream cheese frosting.

I visited Powell's Sweet Shoppe just before Valentine's Day and was able to find an abundance of pretty pink candies to decorate the cake . . . pink & white swirl marshmallows, pink & white peppermint sticks, sixlets, lollipops, and gumballs.

Although I didn't know how I was going to decorate it, I knew that I wanted to make it over-the-top . . . and that it was! I think this was the most fun I've ever had decorating a cake . . . and best of all, Charley loved it!

This beautiful little girl melts my heart.
She is so loving and caring . . . and has a heart of gold.
I am an incredibly blessed Mommy.  
Happy birthday, sweet girl!
I love you.

LET'S STAY in touch!
