Hello Kitty

Yesterday was my niece Ella's 5th Birthday.  My sister in law asked me to make her a Hello Kitty cake.  She just wanted it to be the head.  So I thought it can't be too hard right?  Well, it was probably the easiest cake I have ever made.  Here is the end result and then I'll tell you how I cut it out.

 I baked 2 9X13 cakes.  Completely let the cake cool and then place in the fridge before cutting.  Cut out the oval for the face and cut 2 of the corners off of what was left for the ears.  It was as easy as that.  Attach the ears with icing.  Looking at the picture, I recognize the fact that I should have smoothed the icing a little better:)  I just used leftover halloween candy for the eyes and nose and licorice twizzlers for the whiskers.  She loved it!

Happy Crafting!!

I can't believe it is that time of year again.  My life seems to be slipping away from me.  Did you know that I turned 30 this year and my baby turned 3??  I have so many blessings in my life but I'm a little lost about what comes next.  I know God will show me the next plan for my life when he's ready, but I'm not a patient person:)  Anyway, I found this charger at Walmart the other night.  I know it was less than $4 but can't exactly remember the price.  I don't have a single Thanksgiving decoration, so I thought I would make this one.  I used my Silhouette to cut out the words Give Thanks.  I debated about the color to use, but am happy with my final choice.  So here is the end result for less than $5 total. 
So go to Walmart and get your Silhouette out ladies & Happy Crafting!!
