Lily's Birthday Cake

Yes...a litte tacky but...hey I tried. Lily's cake has homemade butter-creamcheese icing which did alot better than the store bought icing I used on the girls :( The icing was just sliding right off!! I quickly took this picture, but you can still tell the decorations are falling...oh well!! I know for next time right?
It's going to be a Strawberry Shortcake party, so I made little cakes for Na-na and Anjolie too.
Well, I went to order Lily's Birthday cake from Baskin Robbins, but they wanted almost $30 for this tiny little 9" round thing!! It was not even cute. Then I went to the commissary because they have some really cute kids packs and ....they were out of almost all of them. Sooooo I got really brave and decided to make it myself. I have only ever "helped" decorate one other cake with my friend who was patient enough to help me...so I am pleased with how this turned out. I just used the Pampered Chef Easy Accent and baked the cake batter in the small batter bowl and then put the other half in a 9" round. I was upset that I put sprinkles on it :( and it looks a little gaudy, but the girls will love it ;) Not bad for someone who is not a cook and can barely ice a cake.
