Over at smalltownmom's place, she was tagged for a 6th Photo Meme....and then she told "us" to just tag ourselves...and since it's almost 1:00 in the morning and I'm not really tired, I thought I'd do it....you know...just to see. When she posted, she did some playing around with her folders (She's such a bad girl...but we love her anyway!!)....trying the 4th Photo from the 4th folder...the 5th...and then she even tried from the bottom.
Well...let me tell you, my friends, what you're getting from me is straight up.....the 6th photo from the 6 folder...and then a couple more just to make it all more interesting (it will be, it really will be!!!).
...the turtle is a sacred creature in Hawaii...named honu meaning "God of the Sea"...I actually used an old hanging air freshener as my design for this one!!
That same group of women also had a baby shower for someone and asked me to make cakes for that event, too. (They were my best "customers"!!)
A good friend called me and the boys to come over to help her daughter celebrate her birthday and this is one that I put together without much trouble at all...I do love the many things you can do with just a plain, round cake!!! And thank goodness I have frozen frosting in my fridge....I do sometimes use it for decorating actual cakes and not just on Oreos or apples or....a spoon....
I really wanted to show you this next one....this is the cake that started it all, really.
Don't get me wrong, I do love a good fruitcake...but for a wedding?! No...I'm sorry...that's just wrong.
What the frick was I thinking?!?!?! I had never made a wedding cake before!!
K was definitely surprised....as were most of the people at the party...and her brother and his wife were very happy with the results!!!
Armed with the feeling that "yes, I can do this!" and the wonderful books and ideas that my aunt has so graciously passed on to me, I'm feeling more confident in doing this...which is good, because, I talked with K today and her daughter is turning 16 soon and I'm making her cake....oh...what fun this will be!!!
