Here's the Cake!!

Yesterday was the last day of this course of the cake decorating class. This is the cake I made. It turned out better than expected. I'm not very good at making all those different flowers but 'practice makes perfect,' so I need to practice more. I have been practicing some today on making the roses, since I think they are so pretty. I'm beginning to do them better. The cake doesn't look like this now since it has some pieces missing. My husband ate a piece earlier and said it was delicious! The cake is a layered french vanilla.

I was going to take a watercolor class but it was full, so I signed up for the drawing class. Should be interesting since I can't draw a thing.

Early this morning we had some rain and loud thunder. I didn't budge from my bed though. Today was dreary looking all day long. I spent some time napping this afternoon. Those days just seem meant for napping. At least they have lately for me. Now when I was younger it was a different story. I never napped and only did so if I was sick. Not anymore. I relish a good nap!

You did a beautiful job on the cake! I taught myself to decorate cakes and have done many of them over the years, but it's been a while. My daughter took after me and has done a few. Like you I am NOT an artist when it comes to drawing. Doodling is my extent of drawing artwork.
I love those dreary, stay in bed days, but I always end up feeling guilty that I didn't get anything accomplished. Hope you enjoyed it!

Your cake looks beautiful, like a spring garden. Drawing classes are fun.

It's gorgeous, Rachel! I've piddled with cake decorating a bit, but never took any lessons. I'd like to someday though.

We're supposed to get 3-6 inches of snow on Saturday, so you know what that means: you'll probably get some of it too.

I'll be back for your Sunday sign post. Have a great weekend! :o)

Love and hugs,

Your cake looks beautiful, Rachel! Must take a lot of patienceto get those flowers just right.

We're under a windter storm watch again. Bummer! I am sick of winter. It will probably slide your way later today.

Stay safe and warm and have a good weekend.

Wow, I'm impressed! The cake looks beautiful...and delicious! I can see why your husband didn't waste any time digging into it.

Btw, I'm so excited that you're taking a drawing class! Woo-hoo! Is it figure drawing?? Are we going to see nudes above your church signs from now on? :)

Rachel...Words cannot express how beautiful your cake is. You did a FABULOUS job on your cake and in your class. I have no doubt that you will do just as well in your drawing class.

What can't you do? So far I have seen those beautiful baskets, beautiful decorated cakes and in the coming weeks I have no doubt that we will see some fabulous drawings too.

Rachel, you are so talented!!!

Your cake is gorgeous and VERY yummy looking!
You did a superb job!
Now, on to your drawing class... Maybe there will be nude models.
There's nothing wrong with a good nap. The older we get, the more we deserve (and need) naps. I've GOT to get my sleep or my day is ruined. When I don't get a good night's sleep, a nap is necessary.

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work
due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
