Happy 8th, Birthday Girl!

by | Aug 30, 2011 | Cake Decorating, Happy Birthday | 15 comments

I only have a moment, as I still have quite a bit to prepare as we get ready to welcome a whole bunch of little girls for an afternoon Tea Party, but I wanted to pop in here real quick to post a picture of our
beautiful birthday girl

Also, here is a sneak peek at her requested 3-D “Tea Pot”  Birthday Cake…   The thought and anticipation of trying to make this cake was actually giving me nightmares!  However, last night – after it was completed, and safely tucked away in the fridge – I slept well.  I was so pleased  (Perhaps because I had such low expectations!) with how pretty it turned out!!!  

Happy 8th Birthday, 
Twinkle Toes!!

    Happy Birthday Twinke Toes! I LOVE the cake! I enjoy making my children's birthday cakes and find great ideas and how-to videos on the internet. I am going to have to put this one on file for my little girl for a future birthday party.

    perfect, pretty and love the shade of pink.

    Ooh, how neat! Do you make the round teapot shape by baking cakes in two round casserole dishes and then putting them together to make a sphere? It looks like it would be lots of fun to make – although possibly challenging! It looks great!

    Happy Birthday, Twinkle Toes! You are amazing, Jessica!

    What a beautiful cake, Jessica! I think it is so special to make homemade birthday cakes for your children, but mine haven't turned out as lovely as yours yet! 🙂 Maybe with a few more years practice!

    Happy Birthday to your beautiful Twinkle Toes!

    Thank you all for the birthday wishes for our sweet girl, and for all your kind comments on the cake!

    I didn't take that many pictures during the process – at least not that I remember, maybe I did – but I'll take a look at what I have and see if I can put it all into a post.

    Hopefully I will have a chance to post pictures from the party too… It was such a special day!

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.
