My Friend Ella

This is my niece Ella. She is so sweet and totally loves to eat! We visited her and her family in LA last May where we had a huge BBQ party to celebrate 4 birthdays... for which I made 4 cakes. Since that was a lot of cakes, I decided to bake the cakes a day ahead and left them to cool on the countertop.  We left to watch her big brother's baseball game and only when we got back did we notice that there were distinct bite marks on the side of one of the cakes! Not small pinches of cake but bite marks and her mom thinks it was her...and she's probably right.

She looked really surprised when we gave her the bowl of left-over icing since we were telling her not to touch it the whole time I was decorating the cakes. Boy, did she enjoy cleaning off this bowl...almost as much as we enjoyed taking her pics!

I love this new line from Nikki Sivils...My Friend Birdie. I love the soft colors and the cute little birds. My mind is so full of other things to try in my next LO!
