"I love you to the stars and back....."

Our next cake for Christmas Eve came to us via my daughter Amanda. Her long time friend Tanya requested a small cake to celebrate her Grandmother's birthday on the 25th of December. This Christmas marked the 1st year without her dear Grandmother with them but the family thought it only fitting to keep her memory alive and celebrate her life.  Grandma's favourite colour is purple so we decided to decorate the cake in purple.  Also a very sweet request was to have a white owl topper sitting among the stars as Grandma's favourite saying was: "I love to you the stars and back".  A wise women indeed.

This 8" vanilla cake is filled with vanilla mousse and covered in purple fondant.  Our little wise owl is made from gum paste as are the stars which are touched with a little edible glitter.  We have our owl sitting on clouds with floating stars around her.

Simple words added with strong heart felt meaning from this family. 

Happy Birthday Grandma!
