What a night!! Actually, what a Friday & Saturday morning!! LOL Last night after we got home from King's party, I had to make icing for my cakes today...3 batches, with a hand mixer...that might not sound like a lot, but let me tell you!! I will be looking into getting a standing mixer VERY SOON!! I might just get a "cheap" one at Wal-Mart, and start saving up for the King of All Standing Mixers, the Kitchen Aide :) LOL Mom's is AWESOME!! LOL :) And, for icing & stuff like that, WOW, is it REALLY awesome!! LOL :)

So, here are pics of the 2 latest cakes I've made. I had to take them to the church this afternoon, but I did remember to get the digicam out :)

This is the chocolate one...

This is the marble one :)

I had to make a "BIG" one, and a "small" one...I iced them last night, and decorated them this morning before Princess got up (She LOVES the icing!! And begs me for some the whole time...) Anyways, I got it done, and they don't look bad, even if I do say so myself :) LOL I was nervous, because I didn't have a tip I'm used to using (it's probably in Daisy's decorating stuff from our last class together...we were in a hurry & probably just grabbed up what we could...they're pretty inexpensive, so I might just get me a couple new ones :) ) Blah, blah, blah...

Those cakes were for the D Christian Center's open house for the opening of their Infant & Toddler rooms :) I made a marble & a chocolate w/ the same icing as always...I had contemplated using butter flavoring with the chocolate (I thought it might be good, but who knows...)...but I stuck with the same easy to make, easy to use icing :) I'm pretty proud of them :) I know they'll taste good, at least!! LOL And, really, isn't that all that matters? LOL

Anyways...I have to get the house straightened up in time for group tomorrow night :) I think I'll make mini pizzas tonight for King & me :) Princess will probably still be with Mammy & Papa (they're coming to get her after her nap, and that'll be around their dinner time :)) I'll pop over to the gym & work off some of this icing (LOL, I had to taste it, make sure it was OK for strangers!! LOL) Then, we'll probably just hang out here tonight (Isn't that nice?!?! We haven't just hung out in at least a couple weeks!! LOL) Tomorrow's church & small group :)

Okay, well, I'd better go...I might even have time for a nappy nap while Princess naps :)

Talk to ya'll later, and hope you're having a great weekend!! :)

I think it's really cool that you are getting into the cake making business...what a great small home business oppurtunity you may be getting into!! lol...and good for the family cuz we'll help you eat the "rejects"!! lol...your cakes really look professional!

and YAYAYAYAY aboutt he new stove...I imagine that you don't realize how much you use something until it's gone...a stand up mixer sounds like a great idea...I've always wanted one of those but I don't really mix enough to justify one...but it sounds like ya need one!

good to see you all the other night!!
