Hunting Cake for Jesse.

Hello Everyone, Hope your having a great weekend!!!
The weather here as been great and the kiddos are spending lots of time in the pool, with 4 more days left of school, the count down is on to be in the pool every second of everyday!!!

So this weekend there were a few birthdays to celebrate!

Happy 7th Birthday Jesse!!!

This little man loves anything that has to do with hunting!!!
So when he came to our house (i use to look after him and his brothers) he would always follow Chris around, it was to funny!!! 

(sorry for the darkness of the pictures)

Did you see that big Buck through the pines?

My lighting is a little better here.

The big 6 pointer in the pines!

Well now I'm off to do some more baking.  Pop around tomorrow for Noah's Cake. 

Untill then,  Kendall   oxox

Fun filled day!!!

Hello everyone!!! 
Hope you all had a fun filled day!
I sure did!!!
I was city bound first thing this morning as soon as the kids were on the bus I hit the highway!  When I was younger going to the city was always great, but I was there all the time.  And now I'm like a kid in a candy store when going to the city because I NEVER go anymore. Maybe a couple times a year.  But I have a feeling that that's going to change!!!  So today I got my day away!!!  Happy Mommy!!!
Although the next time I'm going to hit up some cake/cupcake shops to try their sweet goodness that they are creating in the city, as well as visit great family!!!
  So next time I better remember to take out the camera.  (unfortunately I have no pics to show you:(  )

Now I'm off to bake like a made woman!!!

Until then,   Kendall   oxox

Peony Wedding Cake

Hello Everyone!!!   Its been way to long!!!!
This past weekend, well in fact most of last week I worked on this cake for a family friend.

Congratulations Kristina & Eddie!!!

The cake that I created for them was Vanilla cake layered with homemade Lemon Curd, iced with Lemon Butter Cream. 

Kristina's favorite flower is the peony.  Let me tell ya we were all glad when they were still out in bloom for her special day!!!  So I also created these sugar peony's for the top of their wedding cake.

These pictures are from different angles,  I LOVED making these!!!!!

I felt kinda famous for a split sec when I delivered this to the venue, when I had one of their little nieces ask me if I was The Cake Designer.  Hello,  I think my eyes were as big a saucers and i was in surprising shock, and then I think I started to chuckle and then I came out "I'm trying to be"
What the heck you do say that to a 10 year old.  I should have been saying "Yes, I am, Would you like to watch me put this together".   She was so cute!!!  She stood there and watched me place the flowers on the cake with the biggest grin the whole time!   Priceless!!!

My first sugar Peony that I worked on.  I had so much fun!  They do take alot of time and days ahead because they need 2-4 days drying time.  The humidity doesn't help the drying time at all.

Here they are drying.  I have tin foil placed over bowls and plastic wrap around them to help them keep there shape while they dry.

Homemade lemon curd.  If you are a lemon type of person you so need to make this!!!  One of the best things ever!!!  (I'm the lemon type)

I hope that you all enjoyed.

Until then, Kendall   oxox

The past month or so?

Hello to the winding down of the weekend,  and the beginning of a NEW week!   Yesterday I mentioned that we had been up to a lot of things.  So here's just some of it.

 Sporting some new toes after a visit with my Mother.  (me and mom time is always great!!!)

Here are the baskets that I created from all my Mothers Day flowers.  I made up four altogether, which hang at our back doorways.

And more Mothers Day flowers!

Up close and personal.

At the side of our patio are my beloved flowers the Peony.  They came out in full bloom last week.  A week and a half is about all I get of these lovelies.
Walking up to our back door smells great!!!

More flowers out in bloom!

What I have planted in my front urn.

About Four weeks ago we put up our pool.  Just a bit crazy considering we had to have a fire going in our house again in JUNE!!! To keep our little tozzies warm.  YES you read that right!!!   (but then again were not the only ones with crazy weather)  But over the long weekend in May the kids were swimming in the pool, to cold for me!!!  I believe it was 62.  But the kids loved it!!!  
Got ta love June Bugs!!!  These little guys were taking a dip too,hahaha

Having a blast!!!

So this is the colour that I chose for painting the outside of our house.  But before I could finish the job I started I had to put up some new ceder shingles.  My goal was to have this done by the time Chris got home from his Fishing Trip.  With only a couple hours to spare.....

This is how it turned out.  I LOVE IT!!!  i was a few shingles short :(
But looks so much better then before!
But when it poors rain you can see all my paint drippings,LOL.  Although in good weather it blends right in, LOL!

The hearts still there only because there was about twenty nails holding it there, and I was a weakling.  So I guess I'm on the hunt for something else, yes, no???
What about a pair of antlers?????

Until then,  Kendall     oxox
