  1. Love that cake!!! And the look on Miss S's face is priceless!!! Have a great week!

    1. Thanks so much Kathy! She certainly had a happy day. :)

  2. Your menu sounds absolutely delicious! I made a cake like that for my daughter a few years ago. I was surprised at how simple it actually was. She just loved it.

    Have a great week!

    1. Thank you Jen. I was also surprised how quick it was. It took longer for the cake to bake, than to decorate it. :)

  3. That menu sounds so good, especially the salmon. I love that cake, I've always wanted to make one but somehow always forget about it.

    Have a great week!

    1. Maple salmon is great! Miss S asked for a chocolate cake and I don't think I could have fit more chocolate on it. :)

  4. I haven't had Salmon in so long, yum. Love the birthday cake, it's so cute and I'm sure she loved it :)
