Oh.My! This is the happiest cake I’ve ever seen!!!! ‘WOW’ doesn’t even do it justice. My 11 year old daughter was sitting next to me while I was reading the post and then said “WOW” as soon as she saw the first picture, and then when I scrolled down to cut cake, she was like “WHOOOOAAAA! This is unbelievable!” I love the upside down thing can’t wait to play around with the idea for my kids’ birthdays coming up in August.
