Want Cake???

You may be wondering where I have been and why I haven't been posting lately. Part of the reason is because this big belly is getting in the way of my stamping. It's not the belly really, but the fact that by the end of the night my back is so sore I can't stand the thought of sitting at my desk. I do have a few projects I will show you later.

So here are a few pictures of my final cake. It was a fun class and I certainly learned a lot, but am glad that I won't need to spend quite so much time in the kitchen any more.

Our homework was to make 10 roses. I needed to practice and wanted to be sure I had 10 good ones to take so I started out making 30. Here are the ones that survived but did not end up on the cake. The pink one is the sample my instructor made.

Now for the final cake. You can see I only ended up using 3 roses. The rest will be saved for another time. I don't plan on making any more roses for quite while. On top of the cake are sweet pea flowers and on the side are some drop flowers.

The girls and I will be cutting into this cake for snack time today :)


  1. Very pretty. I still have yet to receive my piece though!! My oven is broken so I can't make a cake and it sounds good right now!!

  2. You have many talents, Kimme! This cake looks truly professional. Sure you don't want to preserve it in wax instead of letting the kids eat it? :-)


I would love to hear what you think :)
