Princess Barbie Cake.

Made this cake a few weeks back for the sweetest little one (my SIL 's daughter) in our family.
Simply followed the instructions from Here.

I started out making the cake a day earlier. Used a 8 inch round tin and a 8 inch bowl for the cake as mentioned in the video, but just when assembling the cake I realized that the dolls legs were longer than I expected. With no time to bake another cake my sister-in-law and me decided to do some adjustment. We used a hollow round tiffin box, stuffed with cake scraps and made the barbie stand on that. Glad I was able to pull it through and was much delighted to see the surprise in the little ones eyes.

So if you plan to make a princess cake, measure the dolls size before baking the cake :)

Summer Colours from my Small Garden

Its too late to say spring colours but the rain showers this morning made me feel like spring after a super hot weekend.It was nice to see all the flowers and plants drenched in raindrops, definitely felt that they enjoyed the rain more than we did.
Here are few pictures from our small garden space in the front.

I was so excited to see the first rose flower of the season.
 " A Rose is a Rose"  - King of flowers :)

Do you know this flower. I 'm so fascinated by this beauty. It comes in various colors, white, pink, peach..I t was beautiful when it was fresh two weeks back.

These are tiny plants, that bring such beauty and color to the landscape.

Love those raindrops :)

Last but not the least, My Pea Plants started blooming too in my patio.
We tried this plant, just for fun as my son insisted that he wants to grow peas. Turns out that this is one of the easiest to grow. All my other ambitious seedlings are still struggling to grow in this great New England weather :)
