Pretty Pink Ombre Cake

Good Afternoon~

How's it going???
This weekend we had the whole family in town for our grandmother's ( Little Nonnie) funeral and festivities. She lived to be 98 years old!! What a wonderful, full life she had and leaves so much of her wisdom behind. It was a special weekend;)
Anyway, my sister in law Michele and her girls stayed at our house for the weekend..always so much fun. You may know Michele because of her blog Summersoul and Etsy shop 
Well, look what she brought us for a hostess gift.......
Are you kidding me?? This cake was magnificent!!!! I will warn you I have many pics to share, but as I discovered I am impaired at taking good cake photos. Are you drooling yet??
Big heart made with sprinkles in the center and sprinkles all around the cake. Yep, thats cream cheese frosting... Heavenly....
This is before we cut into it
Loving the special personalized banner. I now have this in my kitchen

When we cut open the cake I almost died... I mean I am a total box cake girl. This type of cake is WAY BEYOND ME...... This takes baking talent. 
I like the way this photo focused in on the pink and white straw
We took lots of pics, but I couldn't wait to take a bite. So... let me tell you, this was not only a fantastic looking cake, but was so delicious too! I now have it in the fridge and I keep walking by , sticking a fork in and taking a bite! Nothing better than cold cake!!
I used Picmonkey to do all my photo editing this time. Really liking this last picture.
Thanks again to Michele!! Love you!

I hope you all have a great week filled with lots of sweets, love and smiles:)
