An Unexpected Surprise

Sometimes things come up and if the timing is right we realize we have an opportunity to brighten someone’s day immensely. When it happens and you can also enhance a birthday it makes is doubly special. Because I had several lovely pieces already created to make a gumpaste flower bouquet along with some pre-made lace points, I actually came up with the idea to create a birthday cake for Sharon. When Ms, Muse heard about it, she jumped on the project and proceeded to define the design and finish the little six inch dark chocolate, mocha frosting and fondant covered tidbit.

My heart jumped in pleasure when Sharon squealed with unexpected delight. Sometimes the simplest thing brings the greatest reward. And of course Ms. Muse was very pleased with herself.
