I'm sorry that it has been awhile since I last posted, but I have been incredibly busy. It just seems that the busyness of life all hits at once. Thankfully, I have been one busy woman making all kinds of gifts and taking orders from Jilly's Boutique. I really wouldn't know what to do if I wasn't going 100 miles per hour most days. On to something fun...
Over Labor Day weekend, I put in over 6 hours in cake baking and decorating. The Wednesday before, I got a call to make a special first birthday cake for a little girl in our church. I was very apprehensive as this is the first time I had made a cake for purchase and one of this size!
The theme for the birthday party was a sock monkey. I sent some picture options for the cake to the Mom. She choose a tiered cake with polkadots and a fondant monkey. I had never worked with fondant. I knew this would test my limits and see what I was truly capable. If you know me at all, I am always up for a challenge! Just tell me I can't do something and you have sparked a burning fire within me.

Fall is just around the corner and I couldn't be happier. I love when the weather cools down, but is still warm enough to really enjoy being outside. I'm ready for all the fall festivals, pumpkin patches, colorful change of trees and bonfires.
