It just dawned on me that I have really been busy with this whole new "cake hobby". I have done 9 (would have been 10, but one party changed) cakes in the last couple of months, and have three lined up for June, and one for July already. And, lets not forget about the event that started this all........................... My brothers WEDDING Oct 2nd. I need to keep practicing on those cupcakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't want to get fired from my original gig :)

I realized this weekend that cake makes me happy.....but cakes makes me sick! When I bake cake or cupcakes it makes me happy! Seeing people eat my cake, or smile when they see it, makes me smile. BUT.......I want to eat it too, and I can't. Due to some food allergies diagnosed recently I have to avoid wheat and soy! Kind of difficult when you make things out of SHORTENTING (aka...pure soybean oil). Let me re-phrase that....I can eat it.....I just feel like dying later when I over do it :) "Jojo's" cake looked so good that after her party I just wanted to have ONE bite....well the one bite turned into like 6....and then a "small piece" the next day. Cake will always make me happy when I look at it, and seeing other peoples faces as they are eating it will just have to be reward enough :) The good news is that with my new found hobby I won't gain 10 pounds from cake, since I won't be sampling each one.
This is a "cake" that I made for a Cinco de Mayo party at work......thats right....its cake....and fondant. Everything on here is edible, and SWEET!
This is the birthday cake that I made for my daughters 2nd birthday.
