I spent 4 hours today making this cute, purple and white fondant cake. I learned how to make the fondant. Wow, that is a lot of work!

Week 4 Cupcakes

This is the last cupcake from week 4. I had to take a picture quick before Addi and Payton gobbled it up. They are a basic white cake with a swiss meringue buttercream frosting that I got out of my Martha Stewart cupcake book. Best frosting ever, but doesn't hold shape for decorating very well. Payton was a very cute and willing model.
Goods news for today!!!!
Our black Dodge truck is no longer ours! So glad to see it sell!

New Year Goals and Changes

I have made a new years resolution to learn to decorate cakes/cupcakes. I don't know if it was brought on by all the baked goods I have been making with Addi or the Elmo cake I made for Payton's birthday. I am just learning, but I feel like I get much better every time I do it. Maybe by the end of the year I will be satisfied. Each week I am going to make a decorated baked good and to make sure I follow through I am posting it all.

Week 1: New Years Cupcakes
Week 2: Roses in Grass (well, kind of)

Week 3: Heart Cake-

Last Monday my work announced a big change. The offices of Provo Craft are being moved to South Jordan. It is an empty new building right now which we will be taking the 5th and 6th floors of by April. It is off 106th south, across the freeway from South Towne Mall. The warehouse will then be taken over by Modus Link, employees and all, but will still be shipping our product. I have mixed emotions. This triples my drive time which ultimately means less time with the girls, but I am excited to be in the new building and be a part of a new adventure. Who knows, maybe Les can find a job up that way and we can make a move. At this point we don't know how long Nature's Way keeps Les around before moving to Green Bay, Wisconsin.
