Preparation for KK's Birthday party
Some of you read my story on Kathy's' upcoming party.
If you haven't, you can, by clicking the words in blue above.
I flew to KC to get ready with the help of our other sisters Ann, of tin and sparkle and Lori who live there. Ann has posted pictures of the tables and food.
I took all my cake decorating stuff on the plane (yes they did check my baggage...I had a full bad of raspberry filling and lots of metal in my suitcase)
Ann helped me put the second layer a yellow cake on top.
I then did a thin layer of buttercream icing to "dirty ice" the whole cake and put it in the fridge. I also baked a 13x9 chocolate cake and froze it. When it was frozen I cut it in 5", 4" 3" and 2" strips. using the same dam and raspberry filling I stacked them all. After they were frozen I shaped the smaller cake at angles to the shape I wanted for a purse then dirty iced and refroze it.
We took both cakes to Missouri where the party was, to finish.
The picture below is in the kitchen of the hall that our
double-cousin Sheila owns, which she let us use for the party.
KK loves to cut coupons and recipes and she loves to sing.
We had lots of balloons and LB made a great centerpiece using a word search puzzle she made using words that described things KK loves, like shopping, bingo, church and Wal-marts.
There were lots of tears and laughter as people shared what KK meant to them.
We had a special table just for the cake and
ice-cream which we pre scooped and had in cupcake holders.
What fun we had blessing this special sister for her 60th birthday.
