    Busy Cake Weekend

    On the weekend before Thanksgiving I did two cakes and cupcakes in two days.  I'm continually surprised by how much easier the process has become over the years.  Cake is now infinitely more enjoyable than it is stressful.

    The first was a 50th Birthday Cake for my Aunt Julie.  This is probably my favorite cake ever.  Something about the design just clicked with me. The only disappointment was that my gold lustre dust was delivered to my porch about 30 minutes after I left to deliver the cake.  I had waited for it all day...wanted to paint some of the dots and the rope gold. 

    On Friday night, D debuted in his first ever piano recital.  He beamed.  I beamed.  Azure ran around like a maniac.  I, of course, forgot the camera, but here is a picture of him practicing.  And a picture of the cupcakes we made for the event (white chocolate peppermint and chocolate with salted caramel buttercream). 

    On Saturday, my niece Abby was baptized.  It was a beautiful occasion.  And this is the cake we had to celebrate.  I honestly can't get enough of the ruffle trend.  

    Coming up this month in my cake like - two first birthdays and one wedding...then Davyn will be trying to trump my design ideas for his 7th birthday on February 1st.  Such a micro-manager.  Where in the world does he get that from?!
