A Birthday Cake

Happy Friday!

I was in NY last week for a few days. I flew up to surprise my mother for her birthday. Her birthday is the 15th, but, because of a lot of commitments, I wasn't able to get away this week. So, arriving on the 4th really made it a surprise. We had a nice family birthday dinner celebration at one of my mother's favorite restaurants. Actually, we all love the restaurant.

Anyway, today I am posting the birthday cake I made:

Looks yummy, doesn't it?!?!? I hand-carried it on the plane. The slices were filled with chocolates. Everyone loved their favors (or, perhaps it was really the chocolate they were so crazy about!).

Supplies used: Basic Black, Real Red, & GP White CS, Patterns Love DSP, Real Red ink, Sizzix Daisy die, Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Accent die, SU Petals-a-Plenty EF, Oval, Scalloped Oval, & Scalloped Circle punches, Vintage Labels stamp set, Recollections Pearl brads, and Piece o' Cake template by AR.

Here is a picture of my mother and me at dinner:

I plan to make a mini album with all the pictures from our family dinner.

Thanks for stopping by. I wish you a very crafty weekend.

mmhh, Lisa, die Torte sieht so lecker aus!
Und so zauberhaft mit den Daisies verziert! Toll finde ich auch die zweifarbigen Tortenstücke!

Wünsche euch ein schönes Wochenende und liebe Grüße
