Primary Program

I know, I know; there are no pics. But I just had to create an entry thanking the heavens that the primary program is now completed! Whew! It went so well!!!!!!! There were 8 kids there (which is a great turn out for my primary!) I met two of the stake primary councilors and one of them is related to a very good friend of mine from my old ward (whom I met originally in my old, old, old ward - right before I got married she did a tupperware bridal shower for me). We did it!!!!!!!!!!! Now I need to worry about trunk or treating on Wednesday

Baby shower cake

About a week and a half ago, I threw a baby shower for my friend. I, of course, had to make a cake. My friend had actually seen the baby shower cake I made just over a year ago for another friend and I asked her if she wanted a cutsey cake or a dripping with chocolate decadent cake.
She said surprise me.
So, after looking at images on google, I decided I could do both!
I found the ladybug cake, but iced with white buttercream and I thought how much better it would be to cover it in chocolate glaze instead!!!!

that is the best picture I have of the ladybug

thanks to "cake boss" I remembered I could make some super easy ribbon roses out of strips of fondant and I thought it looked so cute! (not humble or anything, am I?)

and here it is, in a much cuter setting than my cluttered kitchen - my wonderful friend R. offered to have the shower in her house. We had a great time!

Quote of the day:

Tre: I'm not going to watch this (Death Tunnel on SyFy) because.... scary movies with blood doesn't go well with hot dogs (I am still silently snickering).

It appears I will never learn

I was on the computer again, and guess what happened:
My little cook decided to have fun with butter this time

"What, Mom? I am not standing on the oven door - what's wrong?" (Yes, it was I who pulled out the step stool again)

At least it was just butter - it is less noticeable, but he still likes it
