So, today I was bad and skipped church. But, in my defense, I had two things that I absolutely had to get done before 1:00. They were:
Today was my friend Bonnie's bridal shower, and I was in charge of making the cakes. So, when I got up this morning I needed to figure out if you can write with cream cheese frosting, how to make lime green frosting, what to do for a cake board, and so on. I finally did figure everything out. I think it helps that I watched my mom make cakes for the first 17 years of my life, and then I've watched her make a few more since then. So, I knew how to improvise. You can do a lot with cardboard, wrapping paper, and masking tape, for example. I used those to make my frosting bags and the cake board. I looked online when my frosting was looking rather Christmas-y instead of lime-y. Charity gave me some leftover flowers and ribbon, so the cakes had decorations and weren't so boring. The first cake was a carrot cake and the second was chocolate with white frosting. Did I worry that I didn't have a frosting recipe? Nope...my mom has taught me: a little milk, powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, and a touch of salt is all you need. Mix it until it tastes good! So I did! I was pleased...what do you think?
