When I posted about Amanda's cake on Facebook, my sister commented about some kind of fruit carousel commercial. I haven't seen the commercial but I did find a horse cookie cutter mixed into my mom's collection that I looked through for Amanda's cake. This is what we made for my sister's birthday. Her birthday isn't until Saturday but I had all the fruit and wasn't sure it would last until the weekend. Plus I wanted to bring it to her work to show off a little. ;)
It was so much fun and the girls were so excited by the time we got it all put together. My sister and her co-workers loved it. We used watermelon, pineapple, grapes, cantaloupe, and golden honeydew melon plus toothpicks to hold on the stars and kabob sticks for the heart and horses. There are so many creative possibilities!
We are a Christian couple joyfully answering God's call on our life to welcome children into our home. We have two boys, Tyler and Tony, and adopted our first daughter, Amanda, in August of 2007 and a second daughter, Christiana, in July of 2009. Talitha joined our family in February 2010 after a surprise pregnancy. Julia was an even bigger surprise in January 2012.
