Great things come in small packages!
















Sweet baby Olivia is here! With a bunch of excitement...to hear about those details you will have to see the family blog...But back to baking...can you believe it. When the traumatic events unfolded a week ago today, I was decorating a cake for a two year old's birthday. It was going to be the cutest cake ever! I did not get to finish...and so in quite a cathartic way I made the NICU nurses a 1 WEEK OLD BIRTHDAY CAKE for Olivia! It is because of them and her Doctors that she is alive and growing stronger each day, and I am forever indebted to them!










The cake resembles the cake I was going to make the day she was born...just in a smaller package like her! It is a Butter Yellow Cake with Strawberry White Chocolate filling.

Only you would bake a cake 1 week after a c-section. I made pumpkins cookies for Matthew's NICU but that was a good bye present 3 months later.

How amazing you are! I'm sure the staff appreciated that, but I'm sure your appreciation is so much greater. Thanks for sharing your daily story. I love reading about Olivia's progress.
