Happy New Year!

I can't believe 2011 is almost gone.  Ever remember hearing, "the older you get the faster time flys."   That is so true!  Where did it go?

Anyway, there are 2 cakes to post.  I don't know if I've shared with you my favorite type of order.  It is when the customer gives the flavor, colors and number of servings and say, "I trust you, just go with it."  That's what the following cakes are.  Jill said, "Red and Silver, white cake." Steven said, "Just do some thing with swirls, 20 servings each.  We need 2 cakes, one for Wednesday and the other for Friday."  So... I made something for both of them.

Gift Bag for Jill

Ahhhh! I almost forgot!  I helped my daughter with a Science assignment/project.  "Cell" cakes.  One is an animal cell, the other is a plant cell.  So, if it looks like a gross mess...it is.  I covered the cakes for her and she worked on the decorations.

I warned you.  Yuck!

Happy New Year!


A Christmas Story

This may offend, but I am sharing anyway.

Merry Christmas!   

I love this time of year so much.  It isn't the gifts people exchange, but because it brings family together to celebrate the birth of our Savior.  

I want to share Him with you. I've known about Him since I was old enough to understand.  Here is a very powerful poem I read in the eighth grade (a long time ago). Anyway, I have never forgotten it's message.


'Twas The Night Before Jesus Came'

written by Unknown Author

'Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house
Not a creature was praying, not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.

Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.
When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame
The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!
(By the way, this poem is true, it will happen. Believe me, I'm not lying to you, I have better things to do.)

If you do not know Jesus as your Savior, you do not know what you are missing.  It's the best gift of all, eternal life.  It is only through Him will you ever obtain it.  If you believe you must "work" in order have eternal life, then it is not a gift.  The Bible says faith without works is dead, but if you have Jesus in your heart, not your head, you will desire to "do" these good works in His name.  If you do not know how to recieve Jesus, it's as simple as your A, B, C's. 
Admit your a sinner,
Believe in your heart Jesus died on the cross for you and he paid the price for your sin, and
Confess your sins to God the Father.

What Christmas means to my family. We have taught our children to know why Christmas is a celebration and why we exchange gifts in honor of his birth.  After all, the wise men gave gifts to honor Jesus' birth.  Can you name the three gifts?   Most people do not realize the wise men did not show up the night Christ was born, but about two years later. Please understand we don't know the exact date of Christ's birth, but the Bible lets us know we are close.  I pray those who read this blog today understand with out Christ, Christmas would be just another meaningless holiday. 

I pray you find peace and joy this Christmas and be sure to share Him with your family and friends.

Merry Christmas!



Well, surgery has come and gone and now I'm recovering nicely. I want to thank everyone for your prayers and support.

Unfortunately, I do not get to create any cakes until January.  So, this is me telling you to get on the schedule.  I already have January and February filling up.   Remember, it's only me so I have limited space on the calander. I'm looking for your orders!

The October class did not go, because there were not enough signed up.  However, one of my customers (who did sign up) came over for private lessons and she is well on her way to cake decorating.  She's a natural.  I will post what she has done as well.  I know she is very proud of her work and I am very impressed with her skills.  Yes, she has a name, it's Scottie.

I have a few cakes, that I have not posted (pre-surgery).

From Dragonflies to Sushi is what I have for you tonight (and a little in between). Hope your hungry!

I promise there is something for everyone.  I can't believe the wide range of celebrations we have had going on. Special thanks to my hubby for all of your help!  It wouldn't have been possible without you.

I hope you enjoy the pictures.  Have a great weekend!


Deep into Cake!

I have cakes to show you! and up date the schedule too!

I almost forgot,
I have some good news and some not so good news.  Which should I let you know first? The good or the not so good?  Oh, I'll ask the kids in my bedroom, one second...They both responded, "the not so good news!"  So, here goes.  The not so good news is, I have a bulging disc in my neck (between C5 and C6), it is affecting my neck, left shoulder, and arm.  No worries, we are hitting it head on with Chiropractic care, Massage therapy, and posture pump.  It just takes a while to fix that way.  I don't have the time or the desire to have surgery, so I press on.  Just please keep me in your prayers. :)

Now the good news. It makes me so happy to announce I am a full time mom and a full time baker/cake decorator!  Yes, it's true!  (I wear many hats!) I am not teaching as I had planned.  My husband didn't want me teaching, in case the "right" job opportunity came along for him.  So, I get to devote my time to your orders and my family.  I'm not a supporter of Micky D's, but "I'm lovin' It!  

I do wish I had help so I could take on more orders.  It is very difficult for me because I'm having to turn some wonderful people away.  So, I urge you to check 6-8 weeks in advance!  

The schedule for the next few months is...
September - Booked
October - (only two spaces left!)  7th and 14th
November - available dates are 18-23
December - available dates are 1-18

Please! Please!! Please!!! Call and schedule if you need a date!!!! I'm not sure if I'm being very clear.  I know I already have 2 dates for February taken.  It's getting crazy around here!  Don't worry, I really enjoy the challenges you all send my way.  Keep them coming! 

Finally, pictures!  I have cakes all the way back to July!  What's up with that?  I'm not lazy, I'm busy!!!! Whoooo Hooooo!
