Random happenings.....

A sculpture I did for a joint effort cake..... I didn't design it I was the manual labor on this one! This is "Super Caitlin"! Isn't she so cute! Did 24 of these for Isaac's class and the 100 day of school......
Did 24 of these for BaileyRose's class and the 100th day of school..... my first encounter with royal icing.

Baby Girl had a pretty good cough last week and was out right before we got all the snow. Sis had to sleep in the recliner a coupla nights to be comfortable. She's all better now!

Ike's car is number 3.... with the flames baby!

There might have cuter Boy Scouts at this year's Pine Wood Derby but I sure didn't see any.... Isaac and his Pack Leader.... so proud of his car!

This is what we came up with (thank you Family Fun!) for BaileyRose's Valentine box. They had a contest in 3rd grade and she came in second! A leash and wheels were later added so the cat was actually mobile.....

The kids finished their Valentine boxes during our WEEK of snow days!!!!! I will have to take a pic to Isaac's finished truck.... it too had wheels so it could roll.

WHAT!!???? Really? IN ARKANSAS? Ughhh.....Snow snow and more snow!

Made this for Isaacs class for their Valentine's day party. Since I was making the cake, I got to choose the color and since Isaac can't do red dye..... ta da! Yellow heart! The white is royal icing... which I have recently figured out and LOVE!

Isaac and his table mate at the Valentine Day party.... hmmmmm ... not sure I like this picture.

This is a cake that I did for my sweet friend's 14 yo daughter. (Love you Lisa!) I did two sheet cakes with buttercream frosting and a set of heels and braclet on one and a purse and its "contents" spilled out on the other. Happy Day Katie!

I got some much needed help on this one. Can't really tell here but the purse opens and out spills an ipod, phone, compact, nail polish and lipstick. The purse was my contribution and the rest were results of some sweet friends!

Diva Cake!

This is a cake that I did for a friend of mine that recently turned the big 30! Course, now that I am well past the "big 30" it doesn't seem quite so big! Ha! She is always wearing high heels... even when she was pregnant! So the theme for this cake was a no-brainer! The shoes are gumpaste and the rest is fondant over an almond cake with buttercream frosting. They ended up sharing with the whole resturant so it was gone by the end of the party!

So Cool!

I am soooo doing this! I could make bags til they come out my ears! Check out this site for knitting a bag from old "Walmart" bags. You can crochet the bag too.

And BTW, they call it "plarn" not yarn.... get it? PLASTIC YARN???? Ha!
