Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Proverbs 31:30

Trina's Shower Cake

Oh...the ways I love this cake! I am so pleased with how it turned out. I can not even begin to share all of the lessons I learned while making this cake! I will share one that I learned the hard way though:
I thought it would be super smart of me to order the cakes premade from Brookshires and then just decorate them myself. I thought this would guarantee me a cake that tasted good as opposed to one I might make myself. I have never made a cake from scratch before and I doubted using a box mix so I figured this to be the next best thing to conserve time. BIG MISTAKE!
While the cake did taste good, I learned a very interesting fact. Did you know that Brookshires charges the same price for a cake whether they decorate it or not? Yeppers, they sure do. What that translates to is about $47 smackers in UN-decorated cakes! Not gonna lie...I just about fainted. Not to be too caught up on the money aspect of it or anything but I had already spent $18.00 on colored M&M's and rock candy alone so another $50 made an impact on me.
Moral of this short story...Trina & Baby Kenze are soooo worth it! Trina was super happy with her cake and I gained some win situation!
