Martha Stewart I am not...

but this is the cake I made for Peanut's family birthday party today. Not bad for a woman who a) has only made 3 cakes before, b) decided at the last minute her baby deserved something better than a 9x13 cake mix cake with Betty Crocker frosting and c) took a nap for an hour before I got to work. (Hey, what can I say, I was really, really tired!)

Side view:

And so that you may have a full appreciation of my amateur skills, you should know that the whole cake is covered in these tiny little droppy things. It takes a lot of these to cover that big ol' cake!
And so now I must go rest my hand. There was a lot of squeezing done to accomplish this!
