In the Kitchen Again (to the tune of “On the Road Again”)

 

More cakes.  A friend needed cakes for her 2 kids birthdays this weekend, so I’m doing one and my #3 DiL is making the other.  We’re sorta coordinating the designs and sizes. It will interesting to see how this turns out!!  We’ve had fun doing the cakes though.  I suppose if we lived in A Big City, we could make a business out of this.  But then, in this economical and political climate, maybe not.

DiL#3 purchased a used Cricut Cake  for at a huge bargain.  That thing does all of sorts of cool stuff.  And with the touch of a button. So I put her in charge of design…actually, she volunteered.  I took up her offer so fast that….well, fast.  These things are FANTASTIC…you can cut fondant, gumpaste, sugar sheets in a flash.  I think of all the drawing and copying and minute cutting with my Exacto knife I’ve done thru my cake making years, and NOW…THIS!!!  Woohoo!  I feel lazy, but good.  It’s a good lazy. 

my blank canvas!

Next up? Granddaughter #2 wants snowflakes and penguins. Man, do I have that covered!!  😀

This means both of our kitchens are trashed.  Totally.  But she has a better excuse than I do. She has 4 little ones to tend to in the process of being creative!
