So I have a terrible flaw. I cannot accurately assess my abilities. For some reason I think I am superwoman!
My little sister recently graduated from high school. I thought to myself.. "I want to do something special for her". So i decide to make a cake. Now, I have never made a cake before and did not realize how hard it would be. I do not give up though! So I get to work. I decided on a pretty basic style, a pile of books. Chocolate cake and Fondant easy right. I decide the best time to work on a cake is after work the day before the cake is needed. So at 11:00pm I get started. The cakes came out wonderful... the first book came out wonderful, then sleep depervation hit. The fondant on the second cake was tearing, crumbs were getting all over it and the cake nearly hit the wall. But i was convinced my my voice of reason (my sweet bf) that bed was a better option than cake tossing. When i woke up I was in a much better mood and finished the cake up. It came out beautifully!

Well, now my family was putting in orders left and right!
Last weekend my nephew Ayden, turned 2 and my baby sister Natasha, turned 1. Of course I made the cakes because my family is just as bad as i am about assessing my abilities. 5 hours later i produced pictures 2 and 3.
I am a little bit Loopy now and a lot tired but, everyone is happy and so that makes me happy.
