Ellie's Cake Decorating Party

Not sure who had more fun, the kids or Gail & I.... Ellie, our 7 year old quest of honor is an aspiring young baker and cake decorator.  Her mom showed me some of her new baking gadgets that I must go out and get. Ellie and her friends and family had alot of fun adding buttercream and fondant embellishment to their cakes. Learning how to fill pastry bags, pipe a border and work with fondant, each cake turned out as individual as their young decorator.  Ellie's request was to learn how to make a sugar rose, so we worked on making ribbon roses.  Discussing tips for covering cakes and making their own homemade fondant.    at 9pm the night of the party, Elle's mom emailed me some great photos and this note- 

"Ms Debbie       Thank you again for a wonderful party!!  Everyone had a great time and the parents thought that it was the best theme party ever!  The parents were surprised that they got to take the cake and accessories home with them.  Ellie  had a wonderful time.  She usually is in bed by 8pm. Tonight she started to go to bed, then remembered the decorations.  She got the fondant out of the refrigerator and rolled it out to decorate another cupcake!  I attached a few of the photos for you.  Thank you again,  Dee Ann"

THANK YOU ... Dee Ann & Ellie for inviting us into your home and having such a sweet time with you and your friends..  Happy Birthday Ellie (and mom, too)
