Pictures

We've been lacking pictures on this blog for awhile so today I'm posting lots of pictures.

I've decided to make a cake at least once a month so that I can remember how to do all the stuff I learned. This time I decided to make a spider man cake using color flow. Color flow is just icing that dries very fast and hard and shiny. This is what I came up with. I actually wasn't very happy with this cake. The color flow was fine then it cracked and when I put it on the cake the frosting bled through. The frosting just looked kind of messy to me. But, the boys thought it was cool and it was good practice.





We have gotten a lot of snow lately. It has finally warmed up to the low 40's and drizzling so the snow is starting to melt but we still have quite a lot on the ground. We are supposed to get more snow today, tomorrow, and Thursday though. Will is in heaven.
Notice the color of the sky--that's what we see every single day.

Wow - your place looks like Utah did last year! Lots of snow, indeed.
I love the cake - keep practicing because you obviously have a lot of talent in that area. What lucky boys you have to make them such neat cakes.

That cake is great! What are you talking about when you say you didn't like it? Keep up the practice!

Despite the grey skies here, I actually heard BIRDS chirping outside my window yesterday! What a glorious sound that was. I'm hoping that means spring is on the way...

Those gray skies would be so depressing. Hang in there!

That cake is really cute. My boys would love it. Your grey skies are exactly like Iowa. We have greyness for days upon days. It's dreadful and sad. Seems like the last 4 months have been full of gloom, but we are one day closer to Spring, and any day now that ugly snow will be gone. I believe that snow is only pretty on the first day before anybody touches it.

I think the cake looks wonderful! I never learned to do any of the fancy stuff. The sky will be blue soon. (It was even gray part of the time in San Diego last weekend!
