Chocolate Birthday Cake


My daughter, the gourmet cook, continues to come up with creative ways to decorate cakes, and I had to show off this picture of her July creation for my son's birthday: using the new Skittles Chocolate Mix, she decorated this chocolate cake. I believe her method was this: she first did a row around the edge of the cake of Skittles ranging them from dark to light over and over again. Then she began a new row inside but shifted every color over one step. "It makes it look like a snail shell," she said.
Allow me to gush: isn't she creative?

Lovely to see her following in her mother's footsteps. She's obviously got your eye for design.

wow that really is something! i have a considerable lack of artistic ability which i think makes me appreciate those who do have it all the more.
