Bake Off!

How was the weekend action ladies!?!

Ah, relaxing weekend I did not have...but it was super productive and I actually feel quite accomplished...so plus!

Friday:
I ran some errands after work and then came home to assemble my cake boards. I am making a wedding cake for one of my old co-workers from college. She is getting married this weekend!

My dear husband called to say that he was going to be working a little late. You know what time it was when he woke me up on the couch? 11 p.m. On a Friday. Poor guy. He had BBQ Fritos for dinner :(

Saturday:
I had an event for the Junior League at 9 a.m. We were required to take part in a trolley tour of Cleveland and it's surrounding areas. It sounds a little lame for someone that has lived in the city for 3 1/2 years, but it was actually really fun and super informative. The trolley car did hurt my butt sitting there for over 2 hours, but other than that...successful trip. Did you know Chef Boyardee started in Cleveland? Or that delivering mail door to door began here? Yeah. Neither did I.

I headed to the gym to finish off Week 2 of my running program and then went home to start the baking process. I had 10 cakes to bake over the weekend, and I was able to finish 7 of them on Saturday. It took me all freaking day...but I digress.

Sunday:
We headed to church, hit up Walmart for a few more baking supplies, and came home to finish the madness. I baked the final 3 cakes, made some cupcakes with the extra batter, and concocted probably 100 cake balls with the cake scraps I had leftover. I spent the rest of the evening cleaning the disaster zone.

But today...I have very little cake balls in my house because I sent them to work with my husband, my kitchen is sparkling, I have nothing more that needs to be baked, and I am happy.

Except that it's Monday and I'm at work.
