Shani is famously named "The Treat Aunt." Why? Because in order to be the favorite but also to keep fussy, neglected children quiet when their mother has ignored them for 3 hours to decorate a cake, she gives them treats. In this case, frosting beaters....dipped over and over in frosting. Thank you little sister for giving my child a sugar high. You won the title of "favorite" today!

I have to brag for a minute... It was my nephew Chase's birthday today and his favorite thing ever is "Whi-mean Ma-Qweeennn!" So my sister bought a Lightening McQueen cake pan...and I did the rest. Yes there were instructions on how to do this but I free-handed it ALL! And if I do say so myself, it turned out pretty dang cute!
I was so thankful Shani was there to help though. She made frosting, colored it and kept putting the frosting in bags for me. I bought a cake decorating kit off of Amazon because I want to be one of those mom's that makes my kids birthday and special occasion cakes. I had never tried anything before and my mom suggested I take a class first. But it looks like I kind of self-taught myself. How hard can it be, right?
