And the Winners are...

Well before we get to that I have to show you a few others things :) Sorry you'll have to wait a bit to see if you won. I spent the day with my surrogate daughter, the baby's mom. She helped me bake the cakes for my daughter Jen's birthday today and then we created a card. She mostly created and I assisted when she needed help. So first let me show you cake pictures.

Jen loves cheesecake but her fiance' hates it so we made two cakes. A blueberry cheesecake and an orange chocolate cake with salted caramel topping.

After the cakes were done, she wanted to make a card for Jen. She picked out the paper and decided on the design. I helped her only with the cutting board since she had never used one, and the making of the pin she wanted to add. She designed the pin and just needed a little guidance in securing the beads. The rest was totally her and I think she did a fab job. I'll show you the images in tomorrows post since this one is already loaded :)

The baby had her first taste of cheesecake - minus the blueberries (we picked those out). We let her eat it by herself.

I think she liked it. In fact she liked it so much she tried to eat the plate too!

Both cakes were delicious!

So after cake we did the drawing. First the one for my International followers. Jen did the drawing.
