I couldn't help be remember back to the evening we got the call to rush to the hospital. By the time we arrived, she was already snug and wrapped in the hospital bassinet.
It hardly seems possible that this:
One Month Old
Has become this:
The zebra cake earned many positive comments. I simply frosted the cake with pink frosting. I had purchased a small box of black fondant and rolled it out a little at a time. I cut out pieces initially using a zebra pattern print I printed from the web. Once I got the hang of it, I was able to freehand it.
It was my first time working with fondant. One thing I will remember for next time is rolling it out thinly and evenly. Some of my stripes were thicker than others.
Regardless, I thought I did a pretty swell job. I woke mija up with my personal adulation such as "Who's the mommy? I'm the mommy! That's right. I'm the mommy!"
