Natalie's 9th birthday was approaching. I love making my children's birthday cakes. I asked her what she wanted this year and she very decidedly gave me a list of requirements for her cake this year: "Mom, it has to have purple, it has to have roller skates, and I really want that colorful paper stuff that people throw at Mardi Gras."
Hmmmmm confetti, roller skates, and purple? Okay. No problem I got this. ;)
