A Full Weekend

First.  Don't you just love it when you notice the kid-silence is actually not trouble, but this:

Next, we have a couple of family birthdays in this next week, so I made this cake for the festivities. 

And I painted my nails to blend in.  Silly, yes?

This cake was simple Raspberry Layer, Vanilla Layer, Lemon Layer with Swiss Meringue Buttercream.  And I tried  a new technique with Marshmallow Fondant.  Need to tinker with that a bit more...

Then we took some beautiful flowers over to my little sister, Layla's grave.  My parents worked SO hard on this design and it was installed recently. It's full of lovely engravings of  her photographs and favorite quotes and is different on each side. It is beautiful!

I hope your weekend was a good one!
