Isn't it fun to see the difference over time??!! I keep a photo album of just cakes I made. It is fun to look them over and remember the lesson I learned from some of them. Like I needed to learn to make a better red and green for a Christmas cake, and that there is such a thing as too many scrolls and dots on a cake.

It is amazing how much difference a year can make. Of course noahsmummy I think both of your cakes are adorable. My daughter and I were talking about this very thing this morning.
