... and also my dd's first birthday cake. It is the one from pg. 42 of the Wilton 2005 yearbook, adapted slightly to my liking icon_razz.gif Of course it didn't turn out as perfect as I had imagined it in my head.. they never do, but overall I was pretty pleased with it, and it was SO delicious too.

The pig cake was a minor disaster. During transport, it cracked in half where I had joined the head to the body, and the MMF tail broke, and a container of baby wipes slid off the back seat onto it and made a big dent, ... I could go on!!! It was a nightmare. It was for a luau party at our church, with over a hundred people there and I really wanted to make a good impression. At the last minute DH went home to change and brought me my stuff to fix the cake, so needless to say I did not have time to 'perfect' it. I still got tons of compliments though, and the pastor even mentioned it from the pulpit the next day!
