St. Catherine of Sienna

Sunday was Maria's name day. As per family custom, she had a chore free day, a gift bag with some religious-themed gifts (a couple of bracelet kits and a kit to make a foamie "stained glass" window), and her choice of dinner--- Beef Nacho Casserole, couscous, lima beans (yep, she's a weird one), and yellow cake with chocolate frosting. My poor, quickie excuse for a cake is pictured below, and I include the pic only because my sweet, unaffected girl was so tickled by it and thought it was just beautiful. :) She actually gasped with joy at seeing her name in frosting.

Here's some info on St. Catherine...and she's my patron too!

What a great idea! I'm glad she was thrilled. I think slightly messy home made cakes are the best - I'd be right there with her!
