Doug's cute Grandma turned 86 this week and had a party to celebrate! It was so fun and adults only (with the exception of the Mabes) which made it extra fun! Here's a beautiful cake they had made for her. The flowers on top are out of fondant. Beautiful!
His aunt did a ton of work with the decorating and centerpieces. It all turned out so good!
These ones were chocolate hazelnut. I put Nutella in the batter and frosting. I also frosted them with Nutella and dipped them in chopped hazelnuts before I added the frosting. I hope that Florian would have been impressed. He is hard to please though.
These ones were rootbeer. My friend made them a few months ago and they were delicious! There was rootbeer flavoring in the batter and then they were filled with a rootbeer caramel. I topped them with rootbeer flavored buttercream. I know it sounds weird but they were good!
Anyway, Happy Birthday again Grandma Ivins! Thanks to everyone for their hard work (and to Lauren for watching our kids!)!
