Where does the time go????

Wow, has it been that long since I checked in with my girls?? (and gents..)
I guess so....
I have been busy with many things since we last saw one another.
I went back to work ...after 7 months at home sharing my daily thoughts with you and one bum knee..
While at home I launched a lil cake business out of my kitchen
Spoonful of Sugar
Creating cakes in the most delightful way....
That's me... 
I have been a busy little bee...
And we packed up the truck and moved to Beverly....
ok next door. But moving is still moving. I hate to pack!! You never know how much stuff you have until you have to move it from one location to another.
And the proudest moment was watching my nephew graduate!!
I am so proud of the young man my nephew has turned into.
When "Pomp and Circumstance" began to play , the tears began to flow.
The same lil one that was terrified of standing on grass was now marching into his future. 
As he threw up his "rock on "sign- we all held our up rock on's back.
That's right Alex- "Rock on" to whatever your hearts desire!! We are here for you and could not be prouder!!
I too am following my  heart's desire..
thus the reason for my tardiness.
But I am still here..
Now that the dust has setteled you will see more of me.
I promise!! I miss my blogging divas....
hope you missed me too.

Every girl is a princess...

and this birthday girl was no exception.
Yesterday I made this .. three tier buttercream with fondant decorations.
The mom wanted butterflies with purple and pink decorations.
The cake will have a crown placed in front of the feathers ...a regal touch I think.
I added ribbon roses to add some whimsy to it.
The butterflies have edible pearl accents to the body to make it princess worthy.
A princess has to have some jewels!!!
I also added an edible dusting powder to the all of the roses, gumballs (made of fondant) and butterflies.
Trust me the pic does not show the bling in all it's glory. 
I also thre in some matching cupcakes for a bonus...
I pray she liked it.. I enjoyed making it.
Happy birthday to the princess...
hope your cake made your day even more special!!

sorry about the pic..I took it on my phone.
It has been a whirlwind week..
for starters I go back to work this Wednesday..Yeah!!!
I could easily see myself being a stay at home mom but I have never not worked.
So I am excitied about going back to work.
Secondly, I have been making some more cakes.
Saturday was such a lovely day that I decided to make a cake and my own buttercream.
It was delish!!!! When I got to the decorating part...I got lazy.
Don't judge me...I was tired by that point.
But I think it still turned out purty!!!! 
I pray that all is well with all of my bloggy divas.
I want to tell you thank you for being amazinf prayer partners and friends.
I could not make it this past weekend but I heard all about it and want to see pictures ladies!!! 
Please continue to pray for me as I will for you. 
All of you have truly been a blessing to me !!!
Well, hi ho hi ho it's off to work I go!!
