Celebrations - Engagement Cake and Banner

WaHoo!!! School is out for the summer and it is time for celebrations!

My favorite sister-in-law is pregnant with her baby (I'm going to be Aunt Brie - so excited!!) AND my other favorite sister-in-law just got engaged!! Seriously, see what I mean about the celebrations!? And I love it, because, right now, my life is the normal one. I get to enjoy everyone's excitement without any of the stress. LOVING it!

So, to celebrate the engagement, my friend Rita and I made a fancy little four layer engagement cake and added a fun banner. I love how it turned out! And it tasted good too! Check out the banner - it says "HE PUT A RING ON IT." I cut out the letter with my cricut machine and then poked holes on the tops on the letters and strung embroidery floss through the letters. I later realized it would have worked a lot better (and would have been a lot easier) to just glue the letters on the string.

O my, and it was delicious! The layers of cake were french vanilla and devil's food with chocolate ganache filling and covered with buttercream frosting!
