Welcome Cake: March 2008

One of our dear friends, who is in Indian Army has been blessed with a baby girl on 13 March 2008. On that day, the congratulatory calls with the new mom and dad evoked pure joy and the impromptu telly conversations, as usual, evoked memories of their time spent in Botswana. The beautiful angel is Gayatri and I welcome the adorable darling's arrival in this world with this cake !

Message for mom & dad: Vibha and Atal, this cake is for Gayatri . During celebrations at home, do open the blog and show her - her first gift from me !

Message for Gayatri: Little angel, hugs and kisses to you from your aunty in Botswana !

I also wish to share this happy occasion with all my blogger friends and convey my wishes for incoming Easter and Holi celebrations !

Hi Sony
You never cease to amaze me..more than a creative person, you have a golden heart ! You care so much for your friends and their joys. This innovative way of celebrating Gayatri arrival in India from Botswana is very thoughtful,as Cynthia puts it. Being a freelance writer,I bow to your humbleness and true friendship spirit. I wish I was near you and feel honoured to be part of your circle of friends! The cake with pink bears and filigree cradle/basket looks so natural for the occasion and beautiful,as usual! I want to talk to you and just converse.

Very cute & lovely creation Anamika. The delicate work on the cradle is amazing. And those frills are very attractive. Love the lacy designs on the sides of the cake :-)

Overall excellent work :-)

Hi priya
Thank you so much for your comment.I came to know today that you are a freelance writer..no wonder, your comment always has inner thoughts, too !

Hey, its not about having a golden heart..your live only once,then why not live and share joys of life with friends. The time that is passing, never comes back.

Oh, yes! i love my friends and always try to take part in their happiness. They say, a man is known by the company he keeps or birds of same feather,in the end, flock together.I am fortunate to have a circle of friends who share the same heart - pure and simple !
And now, i have wonderful blogger friends, who share the same heart.
Yes,i would like to talk to you, as well!
