    When one of my daughters turned five she insisted it was her "magic birthday"…with a cake like that, I think its true! Happy Birthday Chiquita!

  10. Heather

    Very adorable … we did an enchanted fairy garden theme for my daughter's 7th birthday. It was a huge hit!

  11. mel

    very cute! Did you see the fairy houses and fairies in the newest Hearthsong cataloge? Nobody buy too many of them! I'm hoping there will be some put on clearance later! 🙂

  12. Kelly

    It came out GREAT!!! Thanks for taking the time to post.

    Happy Birthday Chiquita!

  13. Erin

    So cute!! Is the cake made from about four or five layers?? That's my dream cake, lol!

    Where did you get the fairies to put on it?

  14. Jessica Gordon

    Thank you everyone! I was very excited to share a picture with you all! 🙂

    It really was very easy to make and I was able to make it completely from things I already had in the cupboard, without having to go to the store! Yay!!!

    It is made with box boxes of cake mix (4 – 8" round cakes), trimmed/leveled (sorta), stacked and frosted with milk chocolate frosting.

    I didn't have any white frosting to mix with the chocolate to make light brown for the top so I used the last of my powdered sugar mixed with a tiny bit of milk and peanut butter. The fondant was a Christmas gift from my mil to the girls and I cut the leaves, door, and windows out of that, and then just some green coconut for the "grass." I picked up the flowers on clearance at Michaels just after Easter and thought they added a nice little touch.

    I ordered the flower fairies online from The Turtle Trail. "The Lily of the Valley Fairy" was a gift from my parents and the "Tulip Fairy" was from us. They will be her "new Christmas Ornaments" for this year. (I also ordered a couple other fairies to save for the other girls for Christmas, and so I could get the free shipping. The pictures really don't do them justice, they are SO cute!)

    Considering I was able to make this while juggling a fussy 4 month old shows just how easy it is to make! 😉

  15. Kristi

    LOVE THAT CAKE! Your daughter must have loved it too:)

  16. Jenny E.

    Beautiful!! I'm not sure what I like more the fairies or the chocolate. Too cute :):):)

  17. Jessica Gordon

    lol! It is also a Chocolate Cake! Two of the layers are Milk Chocolate and the other two layers are Triple Chocolate! It is not going to be good to have so much chocolate cake in the house! 😉

  18. Renee

    Happy birthday to your sweet daughter. What a wonderful cake! I love flower fairies and so do my grand-girls. Lovely idea, and I'll bet it was a super delicious cake, leftovers? 😉

  19. Sugar Pie

    What a great cake Jessica, LOVE IT.
    Happy birthday to your little/big 5 yr old.
    Have a great day,
    God Bless,
    Hugs Robyn xx

    What a cake! Wished I was five!…

  21. Kristyn Hall

    Very, very cute! How nice that it was simple to make, too… I was usurped as the birthday cake baker by my oldest daughter and she likes to see your ideas. Of course all of our little people are boys so fairies are out for the time being! 😀
    Happy birthday, Chiquita!

  22. Mom2Seven

    Amazing! Cake decorating is one of my favorite things… I am always looking for a birthday, holiday, feast day as an excuse to bake and decorate a cake! It is precious… just like the birthday girl! JMJ

  23. Gardenia

  24. Tiffany

    Gorgeous and inspiring! Thank you for sharing all of your goodness and grace:) A very blessed birthday to your sweet daughter!!

    Happy Birthday, Chiquita!

    This is unrelated to Chiquita's birthday, but I am a teacher of 3rd grade CCD, and we have a long time member of our congregation who will be ordained next month…my husband and I (my co-teacher) are looking for good resources to explain Holy Orders to our class. Any recommendations you have are much appreciated!

  26. Angela

    First of all, Happy Birthday, Chiquita! Jessica, Thanks for sharing how you made this beautiful cake. My 5yo would love this and I'm just wishing that we didn't have to wait until next February to make one. Maybe we can find another occasion:)Thanks again!

  27. Gae

    Dear Jessica,
    That is a wonderful cake. It is so beautiful.
    I think I will have a couple of girls who will want it too.
    Thanks for the instructions too
    God Bless

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
