Winter Wonderland: The Power & Light District

Such a beautiful view of the snow downtown Kansas City.  I just had to take a picture of the snow falling after going out to dinner with some friends.

Wilton Course 2 - Royal Icing Flowers

Here's some quick pictures I took of the flowers I made for Course 2.  I had so much fun learning to make the different kinds.  Now I've just got to find something to use my skills for.  Those daffodils were so hard!

Thomas the Train Cake: Part 3

Here's the result of my first cake order.  Thomas turned out fantastic!  The family loved the cake and I'm sure the little boy was in awe even though he was only two.

Happy Birthday Chase

Thomas the Train Cake: Part 2

Today I carved the cake into the shape of Thomas the Train and iced the base layer on.  Tomorrow is when the decorating comes in.  I'm really looking forward to working on it.

Thomas the Train Cake: Part 1

Tonight I decided to bake the cake for Thomas.  I'm making a Thomas the Train cake for C's birthday on Saturday. He turns 2 and I'm sure he's going to LOVE it!  M and A wanted it half chocolate and half vanilla.  I had an 'almost' disaster by forgetting to grease the pan.  Good thing I realized it before I baked it.  It was challenging to get the batter out without mixing it, but thanks to my husband it turned out alright.

Shopping Finds: Black Shoes

I saw these shoes and HAD TO HAVE THEM!  It's not very often that I go out and by adorable shoes, so when I saw these beauties I just had to get them.  I bought the black pair since they had them in my size.  I cannot wait to wear them for the first time!

Wilton Course 2

Today started Wilton Course 2: Flowers and Borders.  I was very excited to get started.  I have really enjoyed decorating cakes more than I thought I would.  I can't wait to continue with the courses.  This is a mum we made in class.  I'm going to have to practice them more, but I think it looks pretty good for a first-timer.
