I was so excited to have mom with me on her birthday. I don't remember last time I celebrated her or any of my family or relatives' birthday other than hubby's. To celebrate her very day, I planned on making a birthday cake. The cake was an easy fondant covered three-layer cake with some gum paste flowers. I used the same flower color as one on my anniversary cake. As you can guess, I have very limited food colorings, ahem... only blue and peach!
Making such simple cake wasn't simple with a newborn around. It took me a day to finish the whole thing especially since little O didn't have a schedule yet at that time. I was so glad to have my mom and dad accompanied me finishing up the cake past midnight. The cake wasn't superb, but I could see that my parents were so proud of it.
