Suzi's Birthday Cake

Yesterday we celebrated my eldest sister's birthday. We had a yummy Italian dinner, thanks to Aunt Jo Jo, with a few gifts and some creamy coconut cake to top it off. 
I made my sister her first "Custom Cake by Sarah". It was my first cake with string work....  an attempt to make it look like lace. What did I learn?? I hate string work! It is probably the hardest technique in cake decorating that I have ever attempted and  I could feel my face turn RED as I tried and tried to make this royal frosting do what I wanted it to do! 
But alas, I completed it without chucking it across the room (which at the time was all I wanted to do) and although it looked like it was going to be what I call a "cake-tastrophe" of small proportions, it ended up not looking half bad. The important thing was that she thought it was pretty, right?

 Happy birthday Suzi! You are more beautiful every year- 
inside and out! (Even WITH braces!!)
