1st Holy Communion


 

Today was a big day for my  niece, her 1st communion.  She was nervous but did a great job. She looked beautiful.  I'm such a sap, got a little teared up when she entered the church.  She is growing up so fast... Were has the time gone...  She and I looked for cake designs on the internet together.  We found this cake which she loved but wanted me to change the colors to dark brown and blue- no problem...
Here are some pics of the cake and the day...


 
 



What a great looking family...


 The dynamic trio...

Easter



Hoppy Easter everyone!  Here are some of the goodies I made for my family... I had a few days off this week and was able to decorate. Had lots of fun playing with royal icing and chocolate....


Just before the egg hunt- Crazy Uncle Joe wanted to hunt for eggs too...
 Playing around with my new chocolate molds...

Awaiting their personalities...



 Drying bunnies and ducks...

 Had to wait while each row of the basket dried... Darn royal icing- made it a little too thin
 Duck and Bunnie Pretzels (got this idea from pinterest, love that website)
 The finished product...

April Orange madness...


I have been victorious in my struggle with my neighborhood squirrels... This is the first time in three years I've managed to grow tulips from bulbs. Chicken wire is my new best friend... I have the most beautiful orange tulip blooming in my flower bed. That flower inspired my icing color choice for the two birthday cakes I made this weekend. 





 Happy Birthday to my sister and my boyfriend's mom!  Hope you had a great birthday!

Pop Pop is starting them out early...
