So my friend's birthday is a month after mine and since she made a cake for me, I decided to surprise her with a cake also. This is what I came up with. I'm no cake decorator, but I tried. She liked it and that's what matters. The only bad thing is that she did make her own cake this year and another friend brought her cupcakes. Oh well. We who surprise need to coordinate better. I found a pearl dust for cake decorating and sprinkled it all over the cake for a very pretty sheen. Enjoy!
