    Wow what an amazing experience! Celebrities AND cake, sounds like my kinda day 😛
    I think the cake you decorated looks way tastier than the pro one – yours looks more homemade 😀
    Have a good sleep, can’t wait for the next recap!

    This is incredible! Seriously, when you first started your blog, did you ever imagine not only the trips and meet-ups, but getting to do something as once-in-a-lifetime as this? Truly cool, and your cake looks great despite the icing mishap! Mine would be ridiculous lol, I’m totally impressed with yours.

    Wow, what a fun day! You’re a very lucky birthday girl.
    I love Buddy and his show “Cake Boss.” I saw him on Fox and Friends this morning promoting the Electrolux event.
    Such a fun experience for you.

    That really is so exciting. Such an amazing opportunity, and it supports a good cause. As someone who just started their blog in December, I can’t even imagine ever being as successful with mine as yours is. It’s motivating and something to work towards though!

    What a fabulous birthday gift! It looks like you had an ah-ma-zing day – hard to be topped by any other birthday. I hope you get out of all the snow they’re predicting for tomorrow. I know DC/Balto has been hit HARD. Enjoy the rest of your time in the Big Apple dearie!

    what a fun time. the aprons they gave you are so cute.

    isn’t kelly ripa the tiniest thing ever?? i saw her on kelly and regis a few years ago and was seriously taken back by how thin she is. however, she’s adorable and so friendly.

    glad you had a blast!

    I love the new haircut and color! But I really love how you style it. I too have shorter hair but I can’t get it to curl right. I think you should do a “hair how to” post and show us all how you make it look so perfect. I would love that. 🙂
