November 21 & 28, 2011
I never had the chance to post some of the "offline" learning the girls did over Thanksgiving break. Aunt JoAnn kindly purchased and shipped supplies to teach Natalie cake decorating while she stayed with us. They spent some time before Thanksgiving just working with the frosting and tools.
Then -- the final project -- they baked and decorated Natalie & Alex' birthday cake (yep, they have birthdays one week apart and usually share one cake.) I had to promise Aunt JoAnn that I wouldn't make Natalie bake her own cake every year; however, I said nothing about decorating it!
It was not only lovely, but 100% delicious!
Good job, Nats! (and thank you forever, Aunt JoAnn).
