The Martha Stewart piece of me...

This is a photo post... no cards today! Yesterday was my mother in law`s birthday. I made two cakes for her guests. The picture was taken in her orange 70`s kitchen!
This one is the Banana Cream Cake (all time favourite!)


And the Cherry Chocolate Cream Cake:




I considered wearing a pink lace apron.. but I don`t have one! I preferred my Fox Racing Shirt :). Alyssa had fun with her cousin, unfortunately they do not visit us very often. He wasn`t pleased about her touching his face:

Love this one:

She loves dogs, but is a bit confused now... her name is Lilly, our cat`s too and a girl from our toddlergroup is named Lilly, too...

Entertaining all the guests...

And my little happy family:


Maybe I`ll be back with a card later... have a great sunday!

Hugs,
Vanessa
