Cakes – Baby Shower – It’s a Girl – 1997

Another person where I worked, but I never even met her.  She worked in another dept, possibly a different building.  Someone was throwing a baby shower for her and I was asked to make the cake.  She knew the baby was a girl, so that gave me a color scheme.  I also went shopping andContinue reading “Cakes – Baby Shower – It’s a Girl – 1997”

Fishing on Carbuncle Pond – A Photo Essay. Okay, not so much an essay as a long and rambling monologue.

On the morning after Opening Day of Trout Season 2008, Bill and I took the kids to Carbuncle Pond so they could fish for trout (Bill, Alex, and Julia) and I could walk a trail and take pictures.  There’s not enough room in the canoe for the four of us, and we can’t exactly leaveContinue reading “Fishing on Carbuncle Pond – A Photo Essay.

Cakes – Hole in One – 1997

Another golf-themed cake.  More of that fun little Wilton #233 multi-opening piping tip (to make the grass).  I used that tip at every opportunity for a while back then.
