Cute........

Dd was nominated to make a cake and 60 cup cakes for her boyfriends cousins baby shower this weekend.  Luckily her "future" mother in law is baking the cupcakes for her, and dd will decorate them.  Below is the "topper" for the cake.  She has bought a cupcake tree and is decorating that as well.



I will post a photo of the finished cake and cupcakes when dd sends me one.  By the way the baby will be a boy and the colour theme is tiffany blue and brown.

I actually had a day at home on Thursday.  Must say though although I got a bit of work done I didn't get as much done as I would have liked.  I kept getting sidetracked with other things.  Managed to get a couple of columns written and submitted.  Did a pile of laundry and got that all ironed. 

It was such a nice day I had the windows open in the house.  I even barbecued for supper.  While looking in the freezer I found a couple of burgers and a couple of hot dogs laying there so figured they needed to be used up.  It's something we don't eat a lot of, so it always makes a nice change when we do have them.

In case anyone is interested here is a link to my column in the Orangeville Banner, I am whining about the hydro bill............

I love it when the weather is just right for opening up the house - not quite warm enough here yet but getting there.
Those cakes will look cute, love the colours.

What a cute little teddy and isn't it a nice idea to have a baby shower. My daughter in law has had one of those too, recently and now awaits the event! Cupcakes are now all the rage over here in England too. Whatever happened to fairy cakes?
Did the fairies eat them all?
Blessings, Star

Windows and patio doors wide open to day to let in all that "free heat". We'll take this weather anytime!(Anything that isn't snow!!)
The cake decorations look fabulous!
I have no talent of that kind whatsoever!

Your daughter's is so talented. This looks like the start of a business opportunity.

I never get as much done on a 'free' day as I intend. So many distractions.

The cake looks fun - I look forward to seeing it completed.

Wow, dd may end up opening a cake shop with all the cakes and cupcakes she's been making, I can't wait to see the finished product for the baby shower!

Those blocks and teddy bear are adorable to top any cake. I can’t recall ever hearing about cupcake trees but what a clever invention!

You just reminded me to check out our energy provider's website and find out ways to save energy...I will not admit to how much ours was. Our electric just keeps going up and up and up and it just Roger and I most of the time...
