You've got Mail!

Being the proud mother she is, my mam was showing off this very blog in her office at work. Her colleague seen the picture of the cake I made for my best friends sweet 16th birthday and asked that I made one like it for her daughters 11th birthday. 
I wanted to really step up with this cake as I didn't think the one I made for my friend was as good as it could be. Particularly I wanted to improve on the bow. Because I thought the other one was quite shapless, there was no texture to it. 

I thought I achieved what I wanted with the bow, I thought it was a lot more pretty. With the Happy Birthday wish I attempted to make it look like a stamp on the top right corner of the present. How ever I don't think that came across. 

On the side I have a "Priority Mail" sticker. This is a personal touch as the young girls last name is 'Prior' so I [I say I, but in reality it was my mothers idea] decided to add this as it was a parcel so I thought along with the stamp it would look good. 
The family was very happy and that's what counts!
