Princess Harper's birthday cake

This past weekend was Harper's 3rd birthday party. Since she was having a princess themed party, I thought I would attempt to make a 'real' cake instead of cupcakes. I worked for several days on this and was pretty happy with how it turned out. I learned a lot about making cakes in the process and am excited for my next opportunity to try again. So here it is. Keep in mind that this was my first attempt. Don't mind the lumps!

Here's the birthday girl!

Here are some photos of my most recent bridal shower cupcakes. I love the monogrammed look. Simple and classy!

I am finally getting a few spare minutes to add some of the invitations that I have done over the past few years. I apologize for the terrible photo quality and lighting!
