Playing catch up

It’s been a while, and honestly I just haven’t felt like blogging. But luckily I’m over that. I don’t think I ever posted picture of last weekend’s cakes. I did this awesome pizza cake for my friend’s brother.

I also made cupcakes and cookies for a baby shower. Somehow I forgot to take a picture of the cookies, but here are the cupcakes.

For St. Patrick’s Day I made chocolate cupcakes with mint icing. I didn’t take any photos since they weren’t decorated. But everyone said they were yummy.

This weekend I had 2 big cakes to make. I had to make a 3 tier Hannah Montana birthday cake and a 3 tier baptism cake. I had never made a cake this big, so I was a little nervous. It wasn’t as big as what I had in my head. But they were HEAVY! I got to use my new disco dust. I ordered hot pink, purple, and rainbow dust. It was so pretty. I’m probably going to use it on everything now!

I used a new technique for the cross on the baptism cake. I bought some clear flower stamps and stamped the fondant. Then I cut out the cross. It turned out really cute.

I also made pink and purple microphone cake pops.

I had to deliver the cakes to the party on Saturday. During the ride the tiers on the cakes came apart. The icing that was in between the layers slipped down. It’s always something…

After I delivered the cakes on Saturday Mom and I went to a place called Empanadas in Irving. It wasn’t what I expected, but it turned out to be pretty tasty. I got a chorizo empanada with potatoes and onions. I also got a guava and cheese empanada that was so yummy.

We drove back to Dallas and went to the Mesquite Animal Shelter. We saw this one dog that just broke my heart. He was so skinny that you could see all the bones in his body. The floor of his kennel was covered in blood spots because his pressure spots kept bleeding. Unfortunately the shelter in not a no kill shelter. I know that nobody will adopt him and he will be out to sleep. It just makes me so sad.

Sunday I woke up to snow. Yes, you heard me. Snow in Texas in March. It was 70 degrees on Friday and then we had snow. It didn’t last long, but it was still pretty crazy. I was going to meet my friends at the mall, but we decided not to go because of the weather. I ended up staying in bed until about 2. When I got up I called Amber and we decided to go to the mall after all.

We went to eat at Luna de Noche. It’s usually really good, but we had a very absent minded waiter. After lunch we went on a hunt for a white dress for the wedding. Unfortunately we didn’t find anything. We headed over to the movie theater after shopping and saw Remember Me. It was so good. I definitely recommend you see it. After the movie we went to Yogurtland. I had never been there before, but I read about it {here}. They had so many flavors if yogurt and so many toppings to choose from. I ended up getting the red velvet cupcake batter with cookie dough bits, Captain Crunch cereal, and Fruity Pepples cereal on top. Oh my it was yummy! I’ve been craving it ever since!!

After not being able to find a white dress for the wedding, Kristin decided that she wants us to wear black dresses. I ordered this dress yesterday. I can’t wait to get it.

I also ordered this bathing suit.

This week I’m working on a saxophone birthday cake, tea party cupcakes, and cupcakes for a New Moon party.
