Giveaway Winner & A Birthday

TGIF people!  I promised you that each Friday would feature an easy project but I got a little sidetracked.  Yesterday my baby turned 11.  It was definitely low key but it was also definitely a fun time and of course there was a little diy action involved as well so I'll share and call these my Friday projects, okay.  Be nice and play along.

1.  Birthday banner

2.  This birthday cake was described as being the fluffiest cake ever.  Once I bought all the ingredients I discovered that there was a warning about the difficulty level.  Oh well, I baked it anyway.  It did NOT get fluffy but it was damn good and this is from a savoury-not-sweet gal.  Here's the link in case you love vanilla cake and need to have some of your own...Vanilla Cake & Icing

3.  Major mom points with this easy idea.  Dip the glass in icing and then roll in sprinkles!

So now on to the giveaway winner.  Congratulations Sarah!!  I am envious and want to hear what you buy:)

  2. Pass along our wishes for a happy birthday and great year to the newly 11 yr old! You called the celebration low key but the banner, cake, and "drinks" looked very festive and family fun.

    Never saw the fireplace before ... love the arched alcove and the texture of the surround ... what's the material?

    Happy weekend!


  3. Oh, you are a good mom! Sprinkle-tinis - very cool... AND you made the cake! This mom cops out on the cake :-| were so right in your tweet to wonder where the time has gone - my baby just drove to school by herself for the first time today... and my heart is still pounding :-0
