Skateboard Cake



My husband and I made this for our sons birthday party.  It was a combined birthday party with the neighbor.  They were born on the same day 10 hours apart.  No wonder they are so much alike.  They are both really into skating and were stoked to have a cake to represent it.  My writing was a bit goofy but I’ve seen much worse.  I used a new recipe for the cake itself.  It was out of this world!  We used Satin Ice Vanilla Buttercream fondant…great stuff!  We have recently found a great source for all our cake and baking supplies.  What do you think?

Banana’s for Banana Bread

Although I’m not the biggest fan of plain ol’ bananas, I love banana flavored foods.  I had a ton of bananas that were in need of baking.  Solution… yummy banana bread.  I am still adjusting my new schedule.  To be quite honest I feel that I could make better use of my time but baking banana bread was a productive task.  Right?
It’s time to buckle down on myself and create a fool proof schedule to keep me on task and productive.  Easier said than done.  Any ideas out there?  I have been reading up on lots of different ideas and have tried many different things.  Nothing proven yet.  I will keep you all posted.

Crazy Busy

Things have been crazy busy around here lately.  Getting four kids ready and off to school is not an easy task.  Especially when the school has been making it a bit complicated.  Things will smooth out soon though.  When it does, I will be back at the many many projects on my to do list and of course will be sharing them with you.
