A Daisy Birthday Cake

By

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far. I have had quite a fun week; I spent the first part of the week celebrating my husband’s birthday and getting to hear one of my favorite bloggers EVER speak at Baylor’s chapel (she even featured my school in a blog post!)

The middle of the week has found me preparing for the season of Lent. I love this season so much because I feel as though it has a way of reawakening and refocusing my spirit on God. Do any of you participate in this season? I am giving up chocolate this year. It will definitely be difficult because I seem to find a way to have some nearly every day!

Finally, my friends and I were able to surprise a dear friend with a small birthday celebration last night. It feels so good to make someone’s day! Here are some pictures of the cake I made her. It’s a strawberry cake with a basket-weaved, butter cream icing. I had some leftover royal icing daisies that I made this summer, and I used them to top the cake. It reminds me of spring, and with the 70-80 degree weather we have been having, it couldn’t be more fitting!
