Flip Flop Cakes

Mana and I went over to my sis-in-law's house today to help her with a very special project. RK's birthday cake!! It has been a long time since I decorated a cake and I would have to say I was a little nervous about the whole thing. Carlye had the cake cooked and cooled by the time we got there. It all went well if I do say so myself! Of course, I could not resist eating some of the outside cuttings of the cake. They are always the best!! Cutting the cake into the flip flop shapes was not to hard, but icing the space in between the two flip flops was. We managed to do an acceptable job. We had to put the icing and fruit roll-ups in the refrigerator several times because it was just way to hot and everything started melting. It did not feel that hot in her house, but it was for the cake. Pulling the fruit roll-ups off the plastic to form the straps was the hardest part of the whole thing. Overall the cakes turned out well and RK loved them. That is what really matters!! Glad I could help with her cake!! Happy Birthday RK!!

Happy Birthday to my nephew Justin also!!
He just had a birthday!!

The girls had a great time playing dress-up while we made the cakes!
