My mom and I both took pictures of Sophee in her Easter dress. I think the mix of pictures ended up being perfect. I also changed the nuetral desert sand in this layout to black to bring out the black in her dress.

I have been missing from my blog the last few weeks, not because I haven't been creating, but because I have been working on a huge project. A 3-tiered wedding cake and a ring cake (I'll explain this later) for my dear sister-in-law. I have been frantically making gumpaste sugar flowers for weeks leading up to this week of baking and piping. Needless to say, I loved the final product. The flowers on the cake are stargazer lilies, plumerias, gerbera daisies, and red and white roses. The bride's bouquet had stargazer lilies and red roses. The plumerias were to represent the plumeria flower the bride wore in her hair, and also the groom's Hawaiian heritage. The gerbera daisies were the perfect way to pull everything color-wise and aesthetically together. If you would like to see any of the pictures closer, just click on them.
