Two cakes in two days

Had the opportunity to make a romantic anniversary cake as well as a birthday cake for a little girl.

The recipient has a fondness for the blue sported by a certain local sports team (the Colts) and requested that be worked in to the decoration.
The second cake was a double layer banana cake with strawberry filling. Makes me think of my favorite Jello from kid hood. This cake was graced with the presence of Hello Kitty bringing a birthday cake to someone special. This cake recipe came from Edna De La Cruz of
