The girls and I did some nice flower arrangements for our end-of-summer party; we used a combination of fancy flowers from a fancy flower shop, and cheap bouquets from the grocery store. (I know, most people who are taking a nice picture of their house will remove the trash cans. What can I say — keepin' it real.)
This is the cake I made for Cordelia's sixth birthday party. I baked the cake and did the icing and graham cracker beach. I outsourced the ship; I got it made at a local cake shop.
