OMG! I can not believe I did this!

I made my first cake! It is not anywhere near perfect.  I am totally no cake boss, but I think it turned out cool! My daughter LOVED it and that is all that matters. 

I have fine motor issues and have trouble focusing so it took me all day yesterday.  But, I am so proud I pushed myself and did it. 

Anyway I had to share! Here are the pics!


It is a gluten free cake too, which made it SOOO much harder because it crimbles easy!  Because she is allergic to wheat and   gluten she never gets a cool cake cus they do not make them at the bakery! That is why I made it!  It made me tear up to see her so happy when she woke this AM and saw it! =-)


                                                                               

I am Kelly, 32 yr old Mom of 4 Girls!  Caitlin 7 yrs, Lilly 4 yrs, Molly 1 yr. and my angel Elysse born 2/05/08, married to my wonderful husband Jeff for 6 yrs,  I am a domestic violence  survivor,  infant loss survivor, swine flu  medically induced coma survivor,  I am an attatchment parenting momma, non CIO momma, mom of an awesome daughter with autism, and a passionate breastfeeding momma who will breastfeed anywhere anytime my baby is hungry, I have multible life long disabilities but am determined to not let them stop me, My girls are my everything and I live for them! =-)That is me in a nutshell!

Great job! When my daughter was on the GF/CF diet we had to bake our cakes and cupcakes, too.

I was overwhelmed looking at the ingredients list but after we did it a couple times it was a piece of cake (no pun intended, ha)

your daughter is BRAUTIFUL! Happy birthday to her :)

yeah, I finally have a good mix of ingredients that work well. but, they are finicky.... I had to make 4 8x8 cakes, and the last one the butter separated cus I stopped in the middle of putting the ingredients cus I had to take care of Molly, and the cake came out awful and I had to get more batter ingredients and start that cake over.

baking a normal cake will seem easy after this!

I like it.  Its funny my Mom always made my cakes and I begged for a cake that was bought.  Now, most kids get cakes that are bought and want Mom to make a cake, lol.
