"You don't have to wait for a special occasion to enjoy a cupcake - although you might find that sharing a batch makes even an ordinary day seem that much more sweet."- Martha Stewart

I took the cake decorating classes through Michael's. This was my first attempt at a tiered cake.
I really enjoy making birthday cakes. I don't seem to stress as much about those :) This was a really fun one for my cousin. I used a coloring book and cut out the patter of Spiderman and traced the image onto the cake with a toothpick. I thought it turned out pretty good for my first attempt.
This was another cake for my class. I learned how to do the basket weave and I love it. I think it is really fun and really sets off a cake.
This is a baby shower cake I made for my cousin. For the flower stems on the sides I took uncooked spaghetti and broke them into various lengths. I used a large round tip and put it in a decorators bag with green royal icing. I would take the piece of spaghetti and push it through the opening of the tip into the frosting and then squeeze it back out and the spaghetti was covered with royal icing. After they were dry I attached royal icing flowers to them and made flower stalks.
Craig and I met at "Ricks College" in 1994. We were married in San Diego in June of 1995 which means we will celebrate our 18th anniversary this year. Time flies when you're having fun. We lived in Idaho for about 2 years after we were married. Sari was born in Idaho. We moved to California shortly after she was born. We've lived here for about 16 years. Ashlie and Tyler joined our family in California. We have lots of fun just relaxing and hanging out.
