Birthday {Part II}

So you've seen the outfit. This one:

{threw in a vintage edit 'cause I'm happy}

Buuuuuuuuuut you haven't seen the cake yet :-)

Now you have! Light pink frosting with rose petals all around. Tall candles. Beautiful platter.
But, actually, you still haven't really seen the cake. 
Because, I mean, look:

Ombre green mint-flavored layers inside :-)

My favorite colors! My favorite flavors! Gluten free!
A lot of people say I shouldn't make my own cake, but most of the time I really don't mind. It's just so FUN and I really get to go all out. 

I was laughing so hard because when I tried to blow out the candles, the rose petals flew everywhere! Note to self: remove any small, loose, light objects from cake platter before blowing out candles ;-)

Thanks, everyone, for making my birthday so special. 
I'm just so grateful we get to do life together...good and bad, near and far. Thanks for being in my life and for sharing life with me here on my blog. Here's to another year!
