Today is my beautiful Mom's birthday! WHAT TO MAKE FOR THE WOMAN WHO INSPIRED ME??? (tap my fingers, rack my brain...)
Well, she's an avid and amazing gardener (among many other talents)... (I start coming up with ideas)... Then, she requested hummingbird feeders for her birthday. Ah ha, a clue. An idea for how to decorate her cake. Other than that, I knew she wanted a "vanilla" cake. And so, this cake was born...
I don't know if you can tell but the hummingbird has "feathers." I learned alot about hummingbirds making this cake. This guy is a male ruby-throated hummingbird and he's entirely edible (except for his support wire, of course).
Happy Birthday, Momma! I love you!
