It’s that time of year again!

 Cake Raffle time at J’s school.  This is a photo of last years cake.  He wanted bugs and a garden. Something fun and different.

I had never worked with fondant before, but it was very fun all except one part.  I was sooooo sick.  I had a major sinus infection and couldn’t take anything because of Apple, so I wore a mask and washed my hands until they were raw.  And he had a cake for the raffle.  He was devastated when he didn’t win, but realized this year that not everybody gets a cake.

Today, I went out and picked up all I needed for this years cake.  The theme… are you ready?  This is a shocker….   The Beach!

Last summer when we were at my Aunt’s in Delaware, J saw a magazine with a beach cake on it and asked me to make it for this years raffle.  And he didn’t forget!  My Aunt selflessly gave me the magazine and I have been pouring over the details for a few days now.  I have to make a few modifications for ‘nut free’ purposes (in the decorations) but that’s ok, it’s all about creativity.  And here is where I get to play.  I don’t know who is more excited, me or J!!

    OH wow, you are really talented! I have a hard time putting icing on cupcakes from the box sometimes! 😉
    My son wants a turquise cake for his 4th birthday, and he says he wants diggers and bulldozers on it, along with ‘gardening stuff’, because he loves to garden!

    How cute is that??? It’s gorgeous – I love it!! I’m dying to see your Beach cake now . . . and it really does suck cooking or baking when you’re feeling sick. I just started baking cakes this year, I have made three birthday cakes in the past six months and am so impressed with myself!!!

    p.s. I did the Step Up this weekend and loved it. I threw in some squats and lunges and my thighs are burning nicely 🙂
