Happy 2nd Birthday Lily!

Happy 2nd birthday to my sweet baby girl Lily (back on June 8th, sorry Lily for the late post)!  Since her birthday is in the summer and we were having her celebration outdoors, I didn't want to have a cake that would be sitting out for a couple hours and possibly melting.  So I made her another display cake for her dessert table!  Her birthday theme is an enchanted fairy garden theme and so I wanted to make a charming, simple yet elegant cake.  All the decorations are made of fondant and I used some gold pearls for accents.  This is also the first time I made a nice big peony flower, and I'm very excited with how it came out!  It's the fullest flower I've made so far and it excites me more to expand my knowledge and skills in cake decorating!  I'll also be entering this cake to the OC fair for the formal fondant decorated cake category, so wish me luck everyone!

***UPDATE:***  Lily's cake won 3rd place at the OC Fair!!  Woohoo!!

Don't be afraid to try new things and leave your comfort zone when trying to develop your craft, that's what this cake adventure is all about for me!  Without that extra push to learn, you will never improve and grow.  It's only been 2 years of being a mom to my sweet Lily pad, but I've learned that each new day as a parent is a new adventure, and you're constantly learning, growing and adapting to life.  I've watched my Lily pad grow so much in the past 2 years and she's growing into such a beautiful being, I just love her so much, she is my everything.  She inspires me everyday she is my world.  Happy 2nd birthday my precious Lily!!  Here's to many many more birthdays to come!  Also, special thanks to my friend Mieng for capturing the beautiful photos of her below! =)
