In the past 5 days

I have made 4 cakes!

This one was a smash cake for a friend's daughter's first birthday. I also made a huge s'mores cake for the party too, but didn't take any pics for some reason...

This one was a surprise that his stepmom brought to work :)

This one is very special, because it is to surprise my best and oldest friend for her birthday tomorrow! Willy Wonka is her absolute favorite movie, she used to make me watch it every weekend growing up so I am sure she is going to love it!

In my head I want to enjoy sewing...

However, the reality is that it always seems to take WAY longer than I think it will going into it. Of course it doesn't help that I don't have my own machine and I am not completely sure of what I am doing so I have to go to my mom's and use her machine and get her help/supervise me. This wouldn't be such a bad thing except that also means taking my kids along and they DO NOT like to share Grandma's attention! Any who, here is today's project. I did better this time then last, even though I completely messed up the panties and had to cut them apart and restart. This dress is for a friends daughter who's first birthday party is next week. And the best part, the bolt said the material was $4.99/yd and Hailey really liked the material so I said I would get enough to make her something too, so 2 yds expecting to pay almost $11...but it rang up $1/yd!! So I got enough material to make 2 dresses for $2.14, can't beat that!! :)

Lets make a cake!

That's alot of stuff right?!?! I made my first wedding cake this weekend, this is most of the ingridents.

About half way done...

FINISHED and delivered!!

I have to admit, I am not sure that I will advertise doing wedding cakes. I feel like I didn't sleep all week worrying about all the things that could go wrong, but thankfully no major problems came up and it looks great :)
