Christmas Cakes Revisited

I have two more cakes to share.  Such a busy time of year!  But I had the privilege of baking two more Happy Birthday Cakes to celebrate the season and here they are:

Vanilla butter cake with buttercream icing, lightly sprinkled with green sanding sugar (You would know, I left the jar of white about 60 miles away :(--     )    with gum paste/fondant leaves.  Oh, and the holly berries are those yummy Sixlets.. love those!

Baked with love for our little church to enjoy after a wonderful children's Christmas program...AND...

 One last time, but for our family Christmas dinner
 I made a coconut cake.
It's my Mom's favorite
as well as a family tradition
BUT....this time I added a surprise

Tinted layers !

All in all we have enjoyed an extremely blessed season, celebrating many times over the birth of our dear Lord.

Now we are looking toward a new year...untouched, unlived.
May everyone who reads enjoy a safe and prosperous 2012!

For those who can, enjoy the remaining 2011 with family and friends.
For they are indeed a gift
From God :)
