My first sale!

I've been away for a few weeks now... I just haven't been in the mood to post lately.  I'll try to bring you up to speed, and I'll do my best to keep it short and sweet!

First of all I want to thank Mel at Fishing and Wishing and Debra from Vachcouture for the beautiful beaded bracelet I won!!!   I must admit I received it last week, but like I said I really haven't felt like posting so I didn't!!!  but here is a pc of this beautiful bracelet...  absolutely LOVE it!  Isn't it gorgeous?!

Thank you soooo much!!!!!
Oh, I'd like to point out that Tyler told me that it is beautiful and wants me to wear it everyday. 

My sister had her birthday last week, the big 31.... haa haa haa!   We threw her a little party and made her the cake... it came out awesome!!!

I made a two tier butter cake, one with peach jam and the second with blackberry preserves... soo yummy!

I used fondant and made the tiers look like gift boxes...

The birthday girl... she loved it!

and now I finally get to the title of this post... my friend Darcie emailed me asking if I would make the cake for a mutual friend's bridal shower... ABSOLUTELY!!!

So I took her ideas, made some suggestions, did some research and this is the result...

It's white cake with milk chocolate ganache filling... covered with fondant and gumpaste sunflowers.

I LOVED it... more importantlly, everyone at the party loved it too!!!! 

I'm so happy, I finally made my first cake sale!!!

I've been trying to figure out how to get a cake baking business off the ground, and thanks to Darcie this may be it!  I'm looking into getting a web page, but for now stop by my Facebook page and check out the pics of the other cakes I have made.

AND that's pretty much it... other than the normal everyday activities.  So consider yourself caught up in the excitement that is my life!
