Happy Birthday Donna and a Cake

Happy Birthday Donna - my baby sister.  

  I made her a pumpkin spice cake and smells good enough to eat.
started out this way
still working
It took a large pillar candle and then I used a shorter pillar melted to frost and a couple votives to
drizzle.  I decided that looked better.   Smells like pumpkin spice.

Cleaning up wasn't so bad after the mess I made.
 when you melt the candles for frosting,  wait til it get a little set on top and whip,  I used a fork and then a knife to spread on.  Had to keep melting the wax or warm it up I should say as it does harden some while I am spreading it,  but warming it up as much as you need is no problem.    I poured water into pan and brought to boil and poured out ,  in the side yard and washed the pan with soap ,  came out clean .
Was fun to do and she wanted one.

I am sharing with Inspired Sunday best blog party ever
