Quilting and Butterflies

I was honored to make this cake for my sweet grandmother's 85th birthday. I can't even tell you how much I love this woman and how badly I wanted to make something that would be a lovely tribute to the life she has led. She loves butterflies and pastels. She also loves to quilt. And she has made a quilt for each child and grandchild's wedding. And she has made a quilt for the birth of each baby. I and my 4 girls have been grateful recipients of her labor of love. We also put together a book for her birthday that has pictures of each quilt and it's happy owner. Of course, she cried! She is such an amazing woman and I hope to still have such a twinkle in my eye when I'm 85. 8" chocolate fudge with vanilla buttercream and fondant, 6" lemon with raspberry filling, vanilla buttercream, and fondant.
