I may have mentioned this before, by one of my all-time favorite chick flicks is Steel Magnolias. I don’t know what it is, but I just love it. Even typing this up, I get the urge to go pop it in tonight. And this fact is not wasted on my sister, who last year went above and beyond what I expected for my birthday cake.
You see, she was home from university for the Summer and going a little stir crazy waiting for her job to start up, so she started getting into cake decorating for fun. I would literally come home to find a three tiered wedding cake in the middle of the table, complete with gum paste daisies.
I nearly died on the spot I was so happy and I may have strained my face from smiling so much.
…which is actually kind of disturbing when you think about it. Especially considering a vegetarian made it for me. But that didn’t stop me from eating TONS of it over the weekend. The buttercream icing was to die for. How cute is the grass, little blue flowers and crumbled upper Oreo cookie “dirt”?
Speaking of birthday celebrations and eating copious amounts of cake, I’m turning 25 on Monday, so I’m heading up to the cottage tonight for the big long weekend birthday bash….or as I like to call it “Eat Your Weight In Buttercream, Burgers and Pasta Salad” weekend. Hoping that the good weather holds out!
