i have been busy the past few weeks creating messes and cakes. covering my kitchen in a coat of icing sugar is something that is quickly becoming the norm in our home and i am getting REALLY good at it! if it is not all over the counter, there is icing chunks all over the floor which my babe loves. it is a race to get to it and see who can grab it first - me to get it into the garbage, or him to get it into his mouth. i usally lose as he is fast and closer to the floor than me... oh well, i am helping his immune system everytime i lose i guess.

last week had me busy with making three cakes. one for the office where my husband works, one for a church function that we had, and one for a special little boy. it was a fun and exhausting week. i have a few more cakes to do up this week and i was going to start tonight but i decided to take a night off from cleaing the kitchen from my cake creations and play around on here instead. i am not that great at blogging and even less great at figuring out how to work this site.... hoping my hubby can give me a hand.

red velvet cake, four layers with cream cheese icing. made for my husbands office. they are my guinea pigs and i am thankful for them!

i love decorating cakes so i decided it was time to start a blog so that my family and friends could check our my "handy" work on here. i have been decorating cakes for just over a year... i have come a long way since my first cake 6 years ago. i love decorating cakes just as much as i love eating them, and my waistline shows it -but- i don't care!
