Maggie turned 6 today. She has had a big year for birthdays. Last week Grammy treated Maggie to a bus trip to New York for an American Girl Place experience of a lifetime. Then this past Monday, Abuela took Maggie to Build A Bear where she made a bunny named Pearl.
So today, we continued the festivities and had the Reyes’ over to cook out, swim, and continue the celebration of Maggie’s 6th birthday. What a blessed little girl to have so much family who loves her so much!!!
This is Maggie’s Fairy Cake. My very talented neice, Sierra (who just turned 15) drew this Chibi-style version of Maggs as a fairy. I transferred it to the cake, but the real talent definitely is in Sierra’s artwork. We are going to try to make a 3D of the fairy out of gumpaste for the Cannon family cake on Sunday.
Here is a photograph of Sierra’s fairy. She drew in less than 10 minutes. It is a simple line drawing so that I could transfer it. She is incredible. I wish I could have reproduced the eyes better on the cake. She looks scared on the cake as opposed to bashful in the picture Sierra drew. She has some amazing sketches. I wish I had a scanner so I could publish them here.
