Grace's Dora and Friends Cake

Let me show you the very first cake I did after my extended hiatus from baking and cake decorating. This is the cake I did for my niece Grace's 3rd birthday in April of 2008. Dora the Explorer was a hit with little kids back then.

I was pleased with the job I did but most importantly the birthday girl was grinning ear to ear. Right there was when I decided I could still do it. I really felt I still got what it takes it so I heeded the siren call and took the plunge. And so began the countless long days and late nights of confectionery dreams.
