Friday I worked on these duck cupcakes and cookies. I think the cookies turned out so cute!
Saturday I worked on my final cake for the weekend. My cousin was having a white trash birthday party, so I decided to make a can of beer cake. It sounded like a great idea until I actually made the cake. The first time I covered the cake in fondant, the fondant stuck together and ripped. I had to take it all off (along with most of the icing). The second time I tried to cover it I decided to wrap the fondant around the cake. That seemed to work better. But when I added the label, it was too heavy and it pulled the fondant down. It definitely looked like a crushed beer can by the end of the day. That cake stressed me out beyond belief.
Sunday I went over to my uncle's for a cookout. We took the dogs so they could play with my uncle's dog Zoe. Somehow I managed to not take any pictures. After a day of excitement, the dogs were tired out when they got home.
Later that day I went to the birthday party. I wish I had taken a picture of my outfit. I wore a Jack Daniels t-shirt and had my hair in curlers. It was pretty funny.
Today I went to Michael's to sign up for a cake decorating class that starts tomorrow. Hopefully I can perfect some of my skills :) I also stopped by a friends house to visit for a while. My friend is an elementary school music teacher, so I made plans to observe her this week. I was hungry when I got home so Mom and I went to Fuzzy Taco. It was just what I needed. We had chips and queso, tacos, and margaritas. There is nothing like Mexican food. Too bad margaritas make me sleepy!
