Basket Weave Cake

A few years ago my sister asked me to come to Washington to make her son's and daughter-in-laws wedding cake for their reception. I was really excited about doing this for her. We had such a good time together and the reception was beautiful. Here are pictures of the wedding cakes that I made. I love using the basket weave on cakes. It really give it a nice look. I was really happy with how they turned out. I wanted this to be very special for my sister. Hope you enjoy my blog. From time to time I will be posting some of the cakes that I have made.

Kicking Back

Summer time is upon us and all of my co-workers are talking about going camping......I remember so well the good times when our little family went on camping trips. It was so fun to be out in the wilderness enjoying family and the the great out doors. Grandpa loved to take the kids along the river bank to catch a fish. And to just spend a little one on one time with them. We have a lot of fond memories with these trips.

Welcome Baby

A dear friend of mine is have a baby. She has been at the hospital a couple of times this week threatening to have the baby early. It is way too soon for that and the Dr. has put her on bed rest. We are having a shower for her this weekend and I hope it won't be too much for she. This card is very simple, but is just perfect for the occasion.
