2 Year Blog Anniversary!

Sunday marked the 2nd anniversary of my blog! I am so thrilled to be blogging for this long, and I hope for more years to come. I am very very grateful to my readers and I still love reading and commenting on your incredible posts too. You guys are wonderful supporters and friends too.  Thank you so much! Here is to another 2 more years of baking, sweets and creativity!

For this cake I baked 2 Vanilla cakes (recipe here) and stacked them. I then used 3 batches of buttercream icing (recipe here) which were dyed 3 different shades of pink.  I love the girly look that the piping gives. It reminds me of a 1960's ruffled chiffon ball gown for some reason! Perfect for a celebration.

  21. Brittney, I found your beautiful blog via Technicolor Kitchen and instantly found a soft spot for it. I live in America but like you feel misplaced; In my heart I live a cobblestone cottage near a pretty village somewhere near the south of France. I dream of having une jardin where I grow my produce, bake bread in an open hearth fire and live a quiet, simple life - baking & cooking all things French.

    You look well on your way to fulfilling your dreams and while you are young, unmarried and without children; this is the time to make those dreams come true.
    I'll be sure to stop by often, see what you are working on and follow your adventures.

    How is your French? :)

  56. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's
    simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you've done a fantastic job
    with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me
    on Opera. Superb Blog!

    Feel free to visit my site ... how much should i weigh for my age and height
