Mindy's birthday cake

My daughter recently celebrated her 22nd birthday with us. She made her own cake and brought it home with her.



She's been practicing making cakes and covering them with fondant and making sculptures out of fondant to go on top of the cake.




On this cake she decided to try making a horse jumping out of a cake. Okay, so he's more likely climbing out of it, but I thought it was cute anyway.



Here's the lovely, Min.
















This shot is posted specifically for Marilyn. Hard to believe I was ever Min's size, but you know we both have the pictures to prove it. So I took all the previous shots with my new camera, nice but nothing special. So Min takes my camera to the horse farm to take pictures, and voila, you have a clear demonstration of the difference between amateur shots and great shots when you actually know what you're doing. Oh well, I guess I just keep trying.


I love the snippets of daily life she caught.






















I love the richness of colors, see that Granny Smith apple and how the background looks purple?











How many of us could just stick the camera in front of us, click it and have a shot as awesome as she took with her blue shirt and the reflection in her sunglasses? I think I might have to hire her to give me lessons.

Okay, going on Spring Break for a week, I'll visit with you all when I return.
