Shower Gift



My sis and I were invited to a lingerie shower for a friend. I'm kinda silly with things *haha* and like to match the wrapping with the gift inside. So, here's the end result...silver because I didn't have black paper.


More cupakes...



I had some icing left over, so I made some more cupcakes. I'll take these to my church's annual Homecoming service tomorrow. I think they turned out cute! Chocolate with buttercream icing. Topped with milk chocolate chips...

Tupperware Party



Here's the salad bar I "created" for the party...the party was a blast!

Fondant & Georgia



The circle one is my first attempt at covering a cake in fondant. The UGA cake was for my cousin's grad party...I put the gumpaste balls on the wrong tier! =(

I feel like Betty Crocker tonight...





So, I get off work at 3:30ish...it's raining. Run in the fabric store to get some black satin for a sash for a dress I'm wearing Sunday to our annual Homecoming service. I rush to the post office to ship off some packages (addicted to selling amazon books & ebay stuff!). Go to Wal-Mart to pick up stuff to make cupcakes for my almost 90 students tomorrow. Fulfill my 30 minutes at Curves...and finally make it home! Then, for the next 3 hours or so, I was caught in the middle of a baking frenzy...with the powdered sugar haze and all! I made 3 or 4 different flavors, but these turned out the best.

Excited!

I think that I have 2 or 3 more cakes to make...2 shower & 1 wedding! Also, one of my students is going to give my contact info to her boss who is getting married soon. This has been my dream for a long time...glad it's finally seeing some action. =)

Fall Festival = Harvest Gathering





I'm in charge of my church's fall festival...which we are having after Halloween this year on November 8, so it's more like a celebration of the harvest and thankfulness. I'm excited about it though! Last year turned out pretty great...and already have some cool ideas for this year.

I'm thinking about making all of us girls (the workers!) an apron to wear since we're going to be busy with this and that. I love those aprons!

I love that flyer and think I'm going to try and incorporate that into our flyer.

The Rocky Road cupcakes just remind me of bonfires and fall air...yummy!

Wedding Cake




I finally got to make a wedding cake...and I'm rather pleased at how it turned out. It's buttercream with gumpaste flowers.
