Its My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To

I am 19 years old today. I wanted to make my own birthday cake this year so i could practice. My family laughed at that. I guess everyone thought that its a little strange to make your own birthday cake. But i didnt care. So thats what i did. I put fondant over the cake for a smooth look. I also dyed the frosting underneath to give it a light pink textured look. The flowers are not edible. I am still learning how to do that. So maybe by my next cake, i may put some on that one. I painted silver glitter crystals on the cake to give it a little bit of a sparkle. It seemed to be a big hit at my birthday party. The cake didnt turn out exactly how i imagined it to look like, but im happy with the over all result.
FIRE HAZARD!!! well i thought the flowers might catch on fire but i wanted a picture of the cake all lit up. So after i took this picture, it started to go up in flames. But i quickly put it out and made a wish (i think). It was a funny moment, and no one got seriously hurt. Just a little burnt finger.
