This was my first tiered cake that I have ever made, and I'll have to say that it was just as hard to get right as I thought it would be. It turned out great, though, and the birthday girl loved it. I made the Dora and Boots faces out of gumpaste, and I was really happy with them. I will have to try stacking cakes again!

This Friday, Hannah & I made a rainy day visit to the Indianapolis Museum of Art. I can't believe that I had this museum within walking distance of my house and I had never been. We saw a special exhibit on florals in fashion, and it was great!
We then viewed the regular collection, which contained some wonderful pieces as well.

Phillip was a big fan of this grizzly bear that was playing in the water:
Hannah was in love with this baby elephant:
AJ chose the giraffes:
