An Impressive Accomplishment

When my sister Anna volunteered to make Sophie's birthday cake, I showed her the one Sophie had picked out of the Publix cake binder:

Anna just nodded and shrugged. As the time grew close, Andy and I started to fret. Would Anna pull off a cake, or would it be a disaster? She'd alluded to some pretty lofty plans. Should I put a bakery on standby?
At 2:15 AM on Sophie's birthday, I got this cell phone message:
And this is what arrived at the party:

"Tia"/Anna and Sophie

Whoa! That is incredible! Way better than the Publix one, I think! Way to go, Anna! :)

Happy birthday, Soph! The cake is beautiful, too! I'm sure Sophie was on cloud nine, seeing it!

i would just like for everyone to know it could have been so much better but when your working 10 hour days and at 3;30 in the morning it just had to do. but thanks for the props.

Great job Anna! and at 2:15 a.m.? I would have just had to bail and go to Publix, LOL!

Anna can do some awesome things when she puts her mind to it! I loved the cake, and Sophie obviously did, too.
