As I mentioned yesterday, we have 2 summer birthdays. Well, the second one is my daughter Nicole’s B-day.
She turned 9 this year.
She also happens to be in love with anything made of SUGAR. She LOVES candy, licorice, suckers, marshmallows, and anything and everything that is sweet! But her absolute favorite thing is GUM. I really think she is a relative of Violet Beauregarde from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. She LOVES gum and can’t get enough of it.
So this year I thought it would only be fitting to make her birthday cake full of her favorite things—LOTS OF CANDY. So I decided to make a CANDYLAND CAKE.
My friend dropped by and took a picture of me in my kitchen of chaos! (Apparently I am a messy baker!)
But all my messy kitchen was worth it as this is what I came up with:
I think it turned out great--and she LOVED it!
It was a very SWEET birthday for a very SWEET little girl!
