It’s All Over Now

Filed under: — Kate @ 2:57 pm EST

Well, I made the cake for UMIL. I wanted to make a Navajo sand painting, because I know she’s interested in Navajo culture, and it would be different from the typical flowers and “Happy Birthday” style cakes.

I got my inspiration from the artwork we saw on the Navajo Reservation this past July, as well as a few online sources (namely this one) and a couple google image searches.

I think it came out pretty well, though it was a bit iffy there for a while. Let me tell you, it is NOT easy to force sugar into small detailed patterns.

As it turns out, this was the first time anyone baked UMIL a birthday cake in forty years, so hopefully that wins me a few points. ;-)

Anyway, she is gone now, Thanksgiving is over, and things are slowly turning back to normal around here. As far as normal goes, anyway.
