Last Saturday I graduated from Course 1 of the Wilton Cake Decorating Classes! (I got a "diploma" and everything. Yay for me!) I loved every minute of it and can't wait to move on to Course 2. Here's the three
The Rainbow Cake
The Clown Cake
The Rose Bouquet Cake
Everything except the clowns' heads are made out of frosting. Pretty snazzy, no? Lots of fun.
Speaking of Mothers' Day, I had a fabulous one, as usual. My sweet family always go all out to make me feel like the most special, most loved mother on the planet. The spoiling began early for me this year, with my wonderful husband giving me my gifts the day before, so I could use them for my final cake class. (He got me a much wanted cake supply tote and some cake spatulas). He also surprised me by making my ginormous amount of frosting for me so that I could actually make it to my final when I thought I was going to have to miss it. (BEST present EVER). When I got home from my class that night, a gorgeous arrangement of flowers was waiting for me in the middle of our kitchen table. I woke up the next morning to my annual Mothers' Day feast, this time waffles, eggs and ham. (Yum.)
I was showered with cards galore (I think my kids made me six cards each :) and we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast as a family. After church we had an awesome dinner with my family at my sister's house, where we enjoyed the beautiful spring weather, I got some early birthday presents, and--the best part of the evening--my dad accused me of bringing a "lame cake from Yoke's" only to be shocked upon learning I had actually made it. Thank you Wilton classes!
Great weekend? I'd say so.
