Birthday Cake

Thought I'd share a few pictures of the cake I made for my daughter "Em's" birthday.

This was my first time making a Barbie cake, and I think it turned out pretty good. What do you think?
I prefer to cook than to bake, but I really wanted to create a special cake for her, something she would remember and cherish.

"Em" has already requested I make her cake next year. (LOL!)

I took this picture of our shadows last year on a trip to Kauai, where we celebrated our 15 yr. anniversary.
(we celebrate 16 yrs. tomorrow, Aug. 6th)

We took a car ride to see the amazing Waima Canyon. It was sprinkling on and off and as we left the Canyon, we saw an amazing rainbow, so we stopped to check it out and of course I wanted to gets some pictures. It was the largest rainbow I've ever seen.
I noticed as we were gazing at the rainbow how our shadows were being reflected on the red dirt, and as a result this is the photo of our shadows. I absolutely love this picture!!!

So, I had to share a picture of the rainbow, just so you could see a peek at just how amazing it was. This picture is just showing a portion of the left side of the rainbow. It truly was the largest rainbow I have ever seen!
