happy tuesday.  hope your weekend was oh so good, ours was pretty eventful.  jesse's family from moab was in town over the weekend for a play that his cousin, kirsten was in.  she played annelle in steel magnolias and it was really great.  i love going to live performances and it was fun seeing everyone.  

on saturday, our good friends miah and aubrie finally had their gender reveal party and when they had first found out, they asked me to make the cake, like THE cake.  kind of a lot of pressure, so i spent a couple months looking for inspiration and thinking about what i wanted it to look like.  they wanted it to be a traditional baby blue or baby pink with white outside, and i knew i wanted it to be extra special and actually (hopefully!) taste good too.  in the end, i decided to do a lemon-almond cake and incorporate fresh fruit: raspberries for a girl, blueberries for a boy, and pink/blue cream cheese frosting between the four layers.  and for the outside?  i love the look of a homey cake that is imperfectly frosted but i also still wanted it to look polished.  i decided to try this method and i was pretty pleased with the result.

the party was intimate and so well done with just family and a few close friends.  jesse and i are lucky to have such good people in our lives, and feel so fortunate to get to celebrate all these wonderful moments with them.

the big reveal!
