Sometimes a cake idea strikes while I am washing my hair. Sometimes a cake idea strikes at 1:30 in the morning while I am contemplating how to smother my snoring husband. And sometimes I just have to look to the almighty Pinterest for an idea.
My cousin asked for a cake for his mom who had some major milestones recently. His parents just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary and she turned 60 not long ago. I knew I needed to do something "pretty" for her and that is where I was stuck. I searched through my pins and found this cake.
My version didn't need to be SO grand. But...we are all happy with the end result. Even if my pink flower needed more petals :)
