Congratulations Catherine!

My cousin in Ga. is opening her first "Natural Grocers", I couldn't be prouder! And I think her logo is just BEAUTIFUL! She asked if I could make some vegan cupcakes. I was a bit hesitant at first and then thought, maybe it would'nt be so difficult. I've NEVER made Vegan anything! Just the words alone made me gag (just like Gluten free until I tried it :-).
  They were easy to prepare and  taste just as yummy as those cupcakes full of fat, but NOT. These are delicious chocolate cupcakes with a fluffy vegan vanilla and chocolate buttercream frosting. They are now on our menu, thanks Catherine :-).


You go girl!

Happy Birthday Ms Rhonda!

Rhonda is a good friend of mine who's husband is currently deployed and I know he would have wanted her to have a beautiful cake so he sent me this photo of the two of them as a surprise for her.
The cake: A white wedding cake filled with homemade raspberry filling. The camera was made from RKT (rice krispy treats) and fondant/modeling chocolate.

This is one of my favorite shots as the light hit it just right and makes it appear to be a picture just taken.
This picture was taken at my 50th birthday think she was having fun? LOL! Instead of gifts I wanted to play the "White Elephant" game and it was SO much fun! Here, Rhonda's wearing a hat she opened and did not plan on giving it up.

Words....Help or Hurt?

Sometimes it takes me a minute when I've hurt someones feelings and other times I know it immediately as the words are coming out of my mouth. I still at times have "tongue" issues since I am also still human.
James 3:6 reminds me of how words are like fire and can do un-repairable damage... "The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole  body, sets the whole course of one's life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
I recall reading a footnote in my Life Application Bible and it always comes to mind before I say something I shouldn't ( or after) and that note said:
Before you voice your oppinion or make a statement about someone, ask yourself these three questions:
1. Is it True
2. Is it Kind
3. Is it Necessary
That "Necessary" almost always shuts me up, I said "almost" always :-)))....think about it.

Congratulations Shauna & Warwick!

I made this cake topper for my niece who is due to have her baby girl in June. What a blessing!

Happy Anniversary Mina & Lam

There are times I use my cakes as a ministry and this was one of those times. If God gives you a ministry, be it baking, driving someone back and fourth, cleaning houses or toilets no matter how strange others might "think" it is...continue to walk in obedience and you'll be blessed. A famous quote of Dr. Charles Stanley is "Obey God and leave the consequences to Him"...I like that.

This was a fun cake, a new design I learned from a tutorial. The cake is dark chocolate ganache and decorated all with modeling chocolate.

My favorite is the modeling chocolate flower.
