That Cake is on Fire!

I finished a cake order yesterday for a co-worker. It was my first time working with cream cheese icing (red velvet cake!) instead of regular buttercream. Dude, this stuff is seriously delicious. Not that I tasted any of it. No. I would never do that.

She just wanted a simple sheet cake for a Harley lover's birthday. This is what I came up with:



The flame border is definitely my favorite part. Seriously cool!





On another note, my honey is still out of town (has been gone since Sunday...) but before he left he go this little beauty!


I used to ship Matt an Easter basket every year before we finally lived in the same city. It's so nice now to have him right by my side for every holiday. I miss that boy!

And guess what?? He finally shaved! He's been growing the grizzly beard since Christmas and he emerged on Sunday afternoon cleanly shaven! I think someone was trying to impress the judge :) Weird, but I already kind of miss the facial hair. Funny how you get used to things...

I have my very last small group meeting for the Junior League tonight...thank goodness! And I'll be walking 5 miles before that...so cross your fingers for nice weather. Walking outside is WAY more fun :)
