to birthdays and fireworks

This weekend marked some significant birthdays... in addition to the good ol' red, white and blue, my family got to celebrate my uncle and great aunt's birthdays too.

Aunt Betty has blessed our family with her creativity for decades.  She's incredibly talented and has made the most beautiful quilts I've ever seen.
Sooo that explains the "Fourth of July Happy Birthday" cake I whipped up, complete with a little fireworks topper!
So much fun.  My favorite details are the quilted cake board at the bottom and the fun fondant buttons.  This was my first experience with painting on fondant and I'm loving the result!
