Last day

It was the day for Mom and Dad to come and reclaim their girls.  And, most definitely an occasion for a cake. 


Every cake needs to be decorated.  Just for the taste buds:  it's a chocolate cake with mint icing.  We had found a bag of figures for an Indian village at the thrift store.  What a perfect cake decoration!  Not historically accurate at all but they enjoyed putting it all together.


And, of course, we needed a canoe to get around the cake.  And blue tissue for water.  I think it looks fabulous, girls!


Oh, oh!  Who's dropping in for a bite?  A humungous frog!  No one's too sure where he came from but he sure made a mess.  It took a bit of corrective landscaping - with icing - to mend the crater but nothing can really spoil a chocolate cake.

Yes, the cake is totally cool!! And I would love to taste the mint frosting. But I can't take my eyes off the sweet faces of your little girls! Us grandmas are so blessed! The two little girls in our life are four years old, and there is nothing sweeter, no, not even your cake!!

A perfect cake! And I like the guy in the boat on his way to the cake shore!

you are a perfect granny, I bet the girls were sad to leave?

Mint and chocolate are my favourite combination also.

Chocolate and mint are a match made in heaven, and so, apparently, are your girls. They're beautiful!

What great memories you've given your grandchildren!
