Ugg … I have all these half written entries staring at me from the right side of the screen.  It’s both embarrassing and crippling.  I’m sure that doesn’t make sense to most.

Anyway …

My daughter’s 6th birthday was this Wednesday.  She had an odd cake request.  She heard the song Single Ladies by Beyonce a while back, and just loves it … She asked for a Beyonce CAKE!!  WTH?!?  LOL!!!  Who am I to say no though??  So, I gave it my best:

Now, I know, I know, that is NOT a Beyonce doll, but I’m just a mom with a budget, and I couldn’t see spending $30 or more plus shipping on a doll from 1998 on Ebay or whatever.  So, off to the store M and I went.  We scoured the aisles for a Beyonce lookalike.  We ended up choosing the lovely Sasha from the Bratz collection, which was a MAJOR gift in and of itself.  You see, until NOW, M has not been allowed to have any Bratz toys … I don’t find them all that appropriate for little girls …  Sometimes one has to bend.  *shrug*

I think it turned out pretty good, and The Divine Ms. M was delighted, so, mission accomplished.  If you want to know how to make a similar cake, just google (or Bing!)  “princess cake,” and you’ll find lots of pics and instructions.

Here’s a funny pic of Beyonce’s near miss:

AHHH!!  FI-YAH!!  Heh.

Just for fun, here are some pictures of cakes past …
