Stuff

86 degrees in Upstate New York is pretty warm for this time of the year...
which just happens to be what it is right now, which is why I am camped out inside for the time being. I do need to get outside at some point and water the plants I planted yesterday but that may just be after dinner. Things on the farm are just a blooming. I have some beautiful Iris in bloom as well as Lily of the Valley and all the Dandelions are puffed out, spreading their seeds.
The entire backyard is in full bloom smell with all the Lily's of the Valleys. It is an incredible scent and I just love to stand right in the middle of all of it and breathe deep...

Over the weekend I had a baby shower cake(s) to make. It was quite the project but in the end I was pretty happy with it. The cakes were white/vanilla with raspberry filling...4 layers high!!
The top of the outside cakes were baby bibs that I made out of fondant as well as a pacifier, ducky, flowers and a baby bottle. The hubbs helped out a lot towards the end because I was a little panicky trying to get it all done...so a special Thanks goes out to him!!

Other than the cake, I have been making somethings for a wedding we are attending in a few weeks. It is fun to make gifts that you know the people will love. Stay tuned for photos of all of that...

Darn, I wanted to see a picture of the cake. That's something I always wanted to do, and never did. :( I think I would have loved decorating cakes. I so admire those who do.

Tootie!!

The cake is the very last photo...the baby blocks that say HOPE.

It was fun to do and I have another one for this Saturday...Stay tuned for pics of that one!
