Alice in Wonderland

So, the kids at my children's school put on a play, Alice in Wonderland. It was so amazing, I was just taken back by the incredible talent and courage that these kids displayed, with flawless performance and solo singing, I remember being in a musical in eighth grade and having a solo song to sing. That was so nerve racking, and here were first graders facing the same issue. So, when the parents called me up and asked if I would make a cake for their cast party, you better believe I jumped at the chance. I'm as proud of those kids as their own parents, partly because I have experienced the fear and courage required to put on a great performance. They rock!

So, this is the cake I made for their party.

congrats to all!

Happy Birthday Grandma Hedy!!

My hubby's grandma just had her birthday, and she loves orchids,so I made her this little cake. It was a small get together, just family, and I wanted to keep it simple, so I just decorated it with ivory buttercream and some gumpaste orchids and a gumpaste teacup with saucer that I handpainted. It was my first gumpaste orchid experience, and I must say, it was much easier than I thought.

happy birthday Grandma Hedy! We love you!! XOXO
