Pink Saturday and a Butterfly Cake

Today we have invited all the girls and their families for a big barbeque at our summer house. It's a birthday party for my little girl (even though her birthday isn't until next week). It looked like it was going to rain the whole day, but to our joy we woke up this morning to a sunny clear day. My daughter told me that she expected nothing less since she had told Jesus that we needed sun. I love that simple faith!

Some of you have given me great advice about what kind of cake I could make for the Birthday Girl. I loved some of the ideas, but then the princess proclaimed she wanted a Butterfly cake. And of course we mommies try to make their dreams come true... so here is the Butterfly Cake.

I made it last night and then I realized that I did not have a cake box big enough. Wrapping it in plastic would ruin the frosting. Then my brilliant husband came with one of the drawers from our closet! It fit perfectly and guarded the frosting from being smudged. Good work husband!


So now you'll have to go by Beverly at How sweet the sound and see more of today's pink posts. Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!

Wow, I would be very happy just to have a tiny slice of that gorgeous cake. Looks fantastic, and you definately have good skills for cooking as well. It there anything you can not do?!

Tenker prinseessa ble fornøyd nå. Og at bursdagspartyet ble innfridd på alle måter. Godt jobba.

Vi har vært å ryddet hus denne helgen. Min manns farmor er havnet på gamlehjem og huset måtte ryddes. Alt ble fordelt på tre familien, og vi har fått med oss så mye flott hjem, at du aner ikke. Gamle møbler, og staselige ting. Sølv og andres må skatter. Jeg er så utrolig takknemlig her jeg sitter. Det kommer nok bilder etter hvert som møblene har fått sin overhaling ;-)

Ha en flott søndag.

Klem fra Marit

What a cute cake you made! I think that's awesome how you worked to make it special for your daughter. I love her faith too--oh that we could keep that childlike faith as adults!

Thanks for commenting on my blog through SITS.

What a cute cake, I love pink things. In fact I remember when Viagra Online has a funny pink draw.
