Sunday, March 8, 2009 at 12:11AM

for mom's 60th birthday she asked my sisters and me to plan a "craft circuit" party with her girls!  we had an emboridery station, a scrapbooking station, puzzle station, and cupcake decorating station... it was a blast!  these are the cupcakes that each of the ladies decorated then put the candles on for mom to blow out!



for the second party of the weekend we went to the art of entertaining in obrionville for dinner.  it is one of my new favorite places for intimate parties!!  for dessert i made the cake, which mom had requested be a white cake with simple buttercream, but with lemon.  i made a two tier cake with my white supreme recipe, but added lemon zest and extract.  i did the same for the simple buttercream and it turned out wonderfully!  a great birthday week for mama dukes!!
