Last Thursday night i went to a friends house to partake of her Card making class. I also wanted to do a practice run for a cake that a man had ordered from me for his wife's Birthday. I found a beautiful picture of the cake i wanted to do on cakecentral.com so i printed it out. I made this particular cake rich red velvet with vanilla buttercream filling and frosted with chocolate butter cream. Then i used Pirouette cookies to cover the out side of the cake, almost looking like flower stems, then put on some very colorful large silk flowers on top, and a cute green ribbon around the cookies to finish the look of a bouquet of flowers. The kids at my friends house stayed up past their bed time because they wanted cake and my friend was too scared to cut the darn thing, hahaha. Come on it does look awesome if i say so myself ;-) I am just loving this new adventure my life has taken on.
I love my world to be sweet and to share the goodness of that with other people. I am slowly inching my way into the baking and cake decorating arena, and so far LOVING it. I use my friends and family as test subject and have not had any casualties but rather very happy success. I am a family women with an amazing and supportive husband and 2 adorable, adventurous boys. I live to see people smile and when i see that i have done that when i delivery a special sweet treat to someone, i know I am on the right track.
