I'll admit, I'm not a crafty mom. I'm just not that person. I try to be every now and then, but it usually ends in disaster. However, when I was growing up my grandmother was an amazing cake decorator and I learned a lot from her. Now we are talking the classic cakes, you know the ones with the tiny stars on the cake kind of decorating. I'm good at that. However, the new type of decorating with fondant and handmade characters, not so much. I was pleasantly surprised when E's birthday cake turned out fairly well this year.
