Beachy keen cake!

Hi ladies, hope you all had a great weekend! We were super busy...yesterday, I spent all day making a 3 tier cake for my in laws 40th Anniversary party that my SIL and I planned! I spent about 6 hours on this cake, but I have to say for my first tiered cake, I think it came out great. There were some flaws, but all in all it went over so good. The bottom layer was strawberry filling, the middle layer was chocolate pudding and the top was just buttercream (my hubby doesn't like filling). I made my own buttercream frosting and used fondant that was died to match the adorable beachy cake topper! I bought the sugar seashells, I thought they were perfect for the cake! Everyone raved about it and made me blush! So, here is myself and the cake...mind you this picture was taken after many hours of set up and preparing for the! Now that all of my parties are done, I am all set to start scrapping again...until Wednesday...the kids have field day and beach parties and my daughter is marking a milestone in her life...a huge one in my eyes. Samantha at age 6 is donating over 10 inches of her hair to Locks of Love and I am very emotional over it. So stay tuned for some cutie patutie pictures of her!
