new beginning's cake

yesterday and ALL of today i was working on a cake. it is for a group of girls at our church called young women. their program tonight was an inspirational way to start off the new year and set goals for themselves of things to achieve both short and long term. i made a cake for these wonderful, beautiful and sweet girls. once i was one of them, but i am sure i wasn't so sweet! ;) i love them and i love their potential.
my idea for the cake was to take their values and put them onto the cake:

divine nature
individual worth
choice and accountability
good works
integrity AND

while making the cake it made me think of being a young woman again.... what i was like then and who i became. anyways, enough sappy stuff, i am not usually like this. maybe it's because i am running on 4.5 hours of sleep and i sniffed up enough "AmeriaMist" color from my air brushed that I am sure I will have black lung by the morning... literally, the inside of my nose is black and I WENT OUT LIKE THAT!! luckily i am already married because i know i am way past help. my hubby is a great man.

wow, enough blabber. so last night my goal was to get the icing onto the cake and get them smoothed, stacked and ready to go. just when i thought i was going to be done, i put the top tier on crooked and had to fix it and then it made a HUGE mess. i did swear. and then i got it together and kept going, until 2:30AM when i finally got things somewhat back to how it had looked before this -

i know i shouldn't swear, but at that time of day... i am just glad that i didn't punch it!!!

so today i worked on cutting out letters and spraying them so i could finish decorating the cake. it did not turn out at all how i had planned, but i ran out of time (like always) and barely got the cake to the church on time (lol, i'm so funny).

but really, i was there minutes before they finished, and i was still an hour late. so here is the final product, i am very glad that i kept all the million hearts that i cut out for v-day or i would have been up the proverbial creek.

overall i think it turned out just fine.
