I'm baaacccckkkkk!!!!! Back to School Cake!!!!!!

Hello!!! I'm back!!! It took me a long time to settle in my new home!

If you haven't been following my Scrapbookaholic blog, I moved up north to Plumas Lake.

This is a completely new life for us. Plumas Lake is a very small town. I was used to having EVERYTHING so close to me.... and now, well, Walgreens is our only store!!

Anyways, it's been very nerve wrecking for my kids to come to a new community, leave all their childhood friends and come to new schools!!

They had a tough last week and because I want them to feel special, I baked them this cake!

This is my very first shape cake! It is SUPER hard when you do it with cake mix!! I do not recommend doing this. It will be best to look for a recipe made specially for cakes you need to shape. Also, if you are used to the greasing and powdering... well, you have to try Parchment paper, just on the bottom. Don't grease the sides!

I used the Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut Cartridge for the image and fondant is all Wilton.

Don't forget to keep checking back for more cakes!

Next one will be a Halloween cake! and I will have a Cricut Cake Apron to giveaway!!!! The pink and brown one!!!
