you're a {peach}

For my lovely sister's birthday dinner tonight, my mom and I made a delicious cake. We were inspired by this cake I found awhile back on Pinterest:

I couldn't find an actual recipe of any kind to go along with the cake, so we just improvised. My mom baked up her favorite yellow cake, froze the two layers for a bit, split them, then froze them again. I mashed up some homemade peach pie filling to go between the 4 layers, and made some buttercream (scoop out some while it is white, then add just one drop of blue food coloring).

I frosted the cake (always always do a crumb coat!), and did the tiny dot border. My mom wrote the message with a toothpick and then went over it with frosting. We added a beautiful peach half (store-bought) and a leaf from our peach tree.

And here's the end product:
