This coming weekend I was supposed to be teaching a cake class. So to give myself time to prepare to teach said cake class, I didn’t book any cake orders.
Especially since I feel like I am in no way, shape, or form qualified to teach a cake class. I mean, I’ve never even been in a cake class. Ev.Er.
I have a math degree, for crying out loud. And not even a math teaching degree…. just a plain math degree. It’s pretty useless in regards to cake. And teaching.
I digress. So, since I thought I’d be preparing to teach a class where I felt completely like a fish out of water… I took the week off from orders… and then the class got canceled – or at least delayed.
So, this week is my “off” week from cakes… or mostly off. A couple of small things popped up – a cake tasting and a simple strawberry cake for a family member… but other than that… I took myself a (much needed) break.
But just because I’m off from cakes… doesn’t mean I’m actually relaxing.
My kids have swim lessons every day this week.
Then there’s the library summer reading program.
And of course trips to the park and impromptu picnics.
And it’s the week before Father’s Day and the week before my daughter goes to camp – so there’s shopping to be done, bags to be packed, meals to be planned…
You know.. just stuff regular busy summer stuff.
Oh, and we finally got a new (to us) family vehicle (squeeeeeee!!!). Our minivan was shrinking as our 6 kids get bigger and bigger… so we upgraded and we love it!!
So, now that you’re all
bored to death with my busy week all caught up on my week… on with the cake!
Today I’m going to share my latest cowboy cake. It’s a little different than past cakes… I have horse and boots cutouts instead of cow print.
And the cowboy hat? It’s red! Here’s a tutorial for How to Make a Cowboy Hat Cake Topper.
But with the changes, it was unique and still very cute! What do you think?
Now, it’s late as I write this, so I’m gonna skip listing all the details like I usually do, but please, pretty-please, if you have any questions about this cake, how I did any details, flavors, recipes, etc…., please click around, check out my other cowboy cakes and tutorials… or leave a comment and I’ll answer just as soon as I can!
And one last thing before I wrap this up… would you do me a quick favor? Would you hop over to Sweetopia and vote for my cake? If I get the most votes (ends June 28, 2012 at 9pm EST), I win an awesome Cake Ball Roller and I’d love to win!! Thank you SO much!! xoxo
