I know I said I’d try to keep my family off this blog since it’s a CAKE blog…but I can’t resist this post. One week after Mikaela was born, my friend Elise Kersey of Elise Kersey Photography took some newborn photos at a local beach.
We got there EARLY so we could catch the sunrise.
Little Mikaela loved the warm weather – and it made her so sleepy!
But wait! This blog post does relate to cakes! I made a sand castle cake for the photo shoot.
The whole cake was covered with light brown sugar, and I decorated it with hand-made gum paste shells and a piece of fondant driftwood into which Mikaela’s name was carved.
Our sweet baby girl is now 7 weeks old. She’s chubbier and she now smiles at us, but she’s still a beach bum at heart. We have a picture of a beach hanging above her changing table and she loves to lay there smiling and coo-ing at it. We’re excited to take her to the beach for her first ocean swim one day!

Congrats, and you look fab for just having a baby!
I'm so glad you decided to add pictures of your former "bun in the over" to you cake pictures. She's truly beautiful. What a lovely blessing.
