What I've Been Doing This Week... a Little Break. Yeah, I took a little "cake break" this week. Actually, it's not a little break - I've been deliberately slowing down, taking less orders, trying to focus on what's important and best for me right now.
That includes more time spent homeschooling and less time baking. More time cleaning house and decluttering, less time decorating cake. More time blogging, and less time out on deliveries! I still have the occasional busy weekend here and there, but more often than not - I'm getting some rest. (and keeping busy with more important things... keep reading to the bottom!)
Let's talk about cake! This week I only had one cake - and it was for a friend at church - for her baby shower. I was able to do any design I wanted and since I know the peeps at church really prefer buttercream (over fondant), I wanted to do something sweet, simple... and pink... and buttercream.
I think I accomplished that, huh? The top tier was vanilla cake, the bottom was white sour cream cake (I'll tell ya why the 2 different flavors in a second). The tiers were 6" round and 8" round. I used a large petal tip to do the ruffles and the flowers were wafer paper (learned about wafer paper flowers in Craftsy classes!).
Since I had free reign on the baby shower cake, I could make any design I wanted and any flavor. To make the most of my resources, I made her cake the same flavors as some of my wedding cake tasting flavors and that way I had less waste! 🙂 It really worked out great!
Anyway... what else did I do this week? Well, my baby boy turned FIVE!! Whaaaat?!? He comes and snuggles with me in bed almost every morning and it's one of my most favorite things EVER. He also loves to take silly selfies 🙂
His cake? It was a Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cake. I didn't even get a pic. Don't judge.
Also, my hottie husband continued to work on our floors (he's moved into the dining room now), I decluttered a LOT more - yay!! I also pulled out my Valentine's socks, lived through a massive hail storm, had a huge breakfast one night for supper... and I shared our itty bitty puppies on Instagram!
That's about it for my week... what did YOU do this week? I'd love for you to leave me a comment and say HI!
