"J’s" Birthday Cake

First we have the cupcakes that “J” is going to take to school to share on Monday
She requested that they have the letter “J” on them and I added the dots. I think they turned out pretty cute ­čÖé

Here is a top view of her cake. It’s kind of fun and girly.
She is having a Hannah Montana party and these colors go along with the decorations.

Here you can see some of how I decorated the sides.

Simple and sweet.

As you can tell, I’m not a professional. I’ve never had decorating classes.

I’m just a mom making cakes and memories for her kids. ­čśë

Look what came in the mail yesterday

I am a Bzz Agent and they sent this to me in the mail to “Bzz” about
Have you tried the Glade Flameless Candles yet?
If not, what are you waiting for?
I think these are so neat.
*
How does Glade describe their product?
*
The new Glade┬« Wisp┬« Flameless Candle combines continuous puffs of fragrance with a warm, flickering glow, letting you enhance the mood in any setting. Place it in your living room, bathroom, bedroom or anywhere you’d like to create a more inviting space. The Glade┬« Wisp┬« Flameless Candle looks so real, you’d never know it wasn’t a real candle.
Unlike many ordinary electric continuous air fresheners, the Glade® Wisp® Flameless Candle:
Features a decorative glass jar that fits virtually any d├ęcor
Is battery-operated and portable
*
Enhances the ambiance in any room. Unlike ordinary candles, the Glade® Wisp® Flameless Candle:
Continuously fragrances, all day, every day
Is adjustable to 5 fragrance settings
Has no flame, so you can use it practically anywhere
*
The Glade┬« Wisp┬« Flameless Candle has no lit flame, so you can feel confident using it near curtains, next to houseplants and in countless other situations where you might not use a traditional candle. It’s fragrance, ambiance and peace of mind, all in one.
*
What do I think about the Glade Flameless Candle?
*
I like it alot. I like that you can control the intensity of the smell. I like that you can turn the light off and still use the scent. I like that it gives you the look of a candle without the flame.
With a house full of kids, the last thing I need is a live flame around. The Glade Flameless Candle gives me the look and feel of a candle without the danger of a real flame.
*
I even found a $5.00 off coupon HERE
*
Want to see what I did with my Glade Flameless Candle?
Can you see it on the side of the bubble-filled tub? Oh it was such a relaxing bath!

My frugal tip comes because my daughter “J” is having her 8th birthday this Sunday.
Back when my first child was born, I bought birthday cakes from the bakery. Ouch! Then when my second child came along, I lost my mind and bought a special made cake for her first birthday from the expensive bakery here in town. Can you believe they charged me $10 just to make it chocolate instead of the standard yellow?
*
Well, I began making their cakes and I couldn’t believe how easy it can be!
I used a boxed cake mix that I pick up at Wal Mart for $0.88. You can also pick these up when they are on sale and you have a coupon and can pick them up for lots less.
*
I also make my own butter cream icing. All it is is powdered sugar, Crisco, butter and milk. You can find the recipe online.
*
I’ve never taken a cake class. I’d love to, but I just don’t have the time. I’ve learned as I’ve gone along.
*
Here is my most recent cake. I was for my son “A’s” 10th birthday in February
Would you like to see more of the birthday cakes?
Click HERE for “A’s” cakes
Click HERE for “J’s” cakes
Click HERE for “K’s” cakes
Click HERE for “D’s” cakes
The kids just love planning their frugal birthday cakes! It’s a big deal around here to pick out the design they want and have mom make the cake.
*
It’s frugal and it’s PRICELESS!!
