Happy Birthday Mom - Wordless Wednesday

(Original Image and Text, Copyright (c) 2011 Cynthia Shenette) This was the first birthday cake I made for my mom.  As you can see I had a little, uh, issue with the frosting.  Luckily my cake decorating skills have improved over the years.  My mom would have been 90 today.  There isn't a day since she died that I don't think of her or miss her.  Happy Birthday, Mom.  Love you.

Cynthia, your mom was just as pleased with that birthday cake as if you'd done it perfectly. I wish her a happy birthday, too. And I'm sorry for your loss.

Nancy and Sarah - Thank you both for your comments!

Nancy - You are so right. Knowing my mom, she didn't care what the cake looked like. Thank you for your condolences. You are very kind.

I think it's a smashing cake, and I'm sure she did too. I hope you had some joyful thoughts of her this special day.
