I would like to wish a very Happy 80th Birthday to my mother, a wonderful lady who is so amazing to me. She has always been there for me, and all her children whenever we needed her. She is the kindest, sweetest, most generous and just a swell little lady all round!
Joe had the sea bass...quite good i heard.
Here's the cake I made for Mama D, a dark and milk chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream inside the layers. It weighed a ton!! It was so good!! Rich and chocolatey and not too sweet.
Mama D gets ready to blow out 8 candles. 80 candles would've been impossible to put on!!
You can see the red raspberry buttercream in the layer...it turned out very nice, if i do say so myself! Everyone got to bring home a slice too.
A great dinner, a great evening and a great mother being treated on her birthday!
Below, is the memory pillow i made for my mothers' birthday. I took old photos of her with her friends, then scanned them and used an iron on transfer photo paper to print them, then incorporated into this patchwork pillow I made from a 60's quilt i had.
I think she liked it alot! I hope she did! I also added little details like vintage trims an buttons to frame the photo. It was a labour of love to make.
