have your cake

Thanks for letting me take a bit of a break last week. I was able to focus on my family and took some time to think about my priorities and this blog. As much as I love blogging, it isn't on the tip top of my priority list with right now. While I would like to blog five days a week, I have to be honest and admit that I most likely won't be able to do that for the next little while. I want to give you guys good content and not post just for the sake of posting so some weeks might have two posts and others five. I hope you can understand. Thank you for all of your comments and for reading! You are awesome.

My mother in law, Linda, is an excellent cake decorator (she even made our wedding cake). A couple summers ago she held a cake decorating class for her nieces and daughters in law where she shared some of her wisdom and experience. I had a lot of fun learning how to use all the frosting tips but haven't practiced much since then I'm afraid. I'm thinking a refresher course is in order when we head home to visit this summer (how about it Linda?).

These gorgeous cakes below serve as great inspiration for when I finally bust out those tips and decorate a cake. I LOVe that ombre cake and how awesome is the cake with rock candy? I'm thinking it would be so fun for Olivia's next birthday.

Summer, I'll definitely see if I can find out.

Gloria, I have no idea about the ombre cake but I'd love to learn. It's so pretty!

I love the ruffles! Sometimes I get major blog burnout. It's good to take a vacation. I'm thinking of doing it soon too!

I'm thinking these cakes are unbelievably stunning and if your mother-in-law extends the invitation to blogger friends, I would be seriously interested. It's difficult to choose a favorite amongst these images. They're all entirely different and striking in their own manner.
