And here is a peek of the prize:



As you can see, the Paper Girls like to party. Over at my house the most important part of our birthdays is the cake. My kids always choose interesting subjects for their cakes and I do my best to try and pull it off. In the last two weeks I've had two birthday parties in my home. At the first party my son chose Spyro from Skylanders for his cake. His face is made with different colors of fondant and the horns are ice cream cones covered with yellow candy melts.

 At the second party my daughter wanted her cake to be a companion cube from the game Portal for her birthday party. The outside is also fondant and I piped the pink accents.  I decided to do something fun and bake heart shapes into the cake when you slice it. My daughter is really girly so she loved it.

Thanks for stopping by! Here is a list of the blog hop locations in case you missed one. Your next top is Karrie's blog.
