M*A*S*H and sunflowers

Mom's birthday cake. I don't know if anyone else has ever seen M*A*S*H but my family absolutely loves it! It's pretty funny, I tried to add in some of the jokes from the show like the red long johns and the spam lamb on the right. It was a pink velvet raspberry cake with vanilla frosting, my mom's favorite.

 This is just a small sunflower birthday cake I made for work.

Homecoming and Cakes

Friday night was homecoming back home. My brother Willy is a senior this year so I went to watch him play. I sat by both of my sisters and my brother JD along with their friends. It was so much fun to get to spend time with them all. I love my family and it is so great that we all get to hang out together again now that JD is back from his mission. Here are some pics from the night. We forgot our cameras so these were taken with my phone which doesn't have a very good camera.

Thursday was my brother's friend, Megan's birthday and since I was going down already, they asked my to bring her down a cake. It's actually made out of rice krispy treats. I also made my own fondant for the first time for this one. It's Cinderella's carriage.
 This morning I had a couple cakes to make for a little boy's first birthday. They wanted a small smash cake for him and then a larger cake for everyone else.

I should not be eating tortilla chips

I'm pretty sure it's been two weeks since my house has been truly clean and I'm sitting here dinking away on the computer and snacking on tortilla chips. I can't even blame this negligence on being overly busy because truthfully I'm not, or at least not with the things that I should be  busy doing. Most days I would feel guilty and even a little useless pushing aside things that desperately need to be done. But not today. Today I really don't care. I think I'm just emotionally exhausted. I don't know if any of you have ever felt like you had a hundred little things tugging on your emotions but that's how I'm feeling today. I like to think that everyone has these days... Hopefully I'm not the only one. Tomorrow I have to get back to my normal routine but for today I will sit here and be idle with my time. Normally I wouldn't think of blogging as being an idle activity. Most of the time I feel like it is something that I should do but when I have dishes sitting in the sink and laundry from a week ago still in the basket waiting to be folded, it's probably not the best use of my time.  

Not that I've confessed my current laziness to all who read my blog... :) I've been meaning to put up my newest cake photos so here they are.

 This weekend I made a wedding cake. I think that it is the best cake that I have made so far. Everything went so smoothly. I hope it means that I'm getting better instead of just being a fluke :) 

This is another wedding cake that I made a couple of weeks ago. It's not completely finished. They were putting flowers on top and some kind of decorations around the bottom.

New Cakes & Crafts

I put up a bunch of new cakes on my cake page and a couple of new crafts on my craft page so go check them out!!


I'm a couple of weeks late but my birthday was great! I had such a blast. We went to north to Provo just so that we could eat at Rodizio Grill. Yumm! We also went and saw Despicable Me in 3D. We've seen it twice now because it quickly become one of my new favs. 
for my birthday, I got this awesome new radio/stereo for my car. My old one had been on the outs for quite awhile.

Along with it I got a holder for my Iphone so  I can play it through the stereo and a few really cute shirts. Mark was such a sweetheart and he went shirt shopping with me. 

He also made me this totally awesome cake all by himself!

 Didn't he do an amazing job? Here's proof that he really made it.

The reason it's a giraffe for all who don't know, giraffes are my absolute favorite and always have been. One day I'll have to share with you my enormous collection of all things giraffe.
This last picture is just because it makes me smile :)
