Another Day; Another Cake

We've been enjoying the luxuries of our new bathroom, but as you all know there's no rest for the wicked.  I delivered another cake today, but at least I got to try this one.  It was for a baby shower for one of the girls at work:

I've shamelessly stolen the idea from the Internet, but a newbie has to start somewhere.  I have another order for the coming weekend (a three tiered baptism cake) and a summer order for a 50th wedding anniversary. 
While I was chatting with the girls, Ron spent most of the afternoon packaging up cardboard from the reno and just general accumulation to get ready for recycling pick up tomorrow.  (They only pick up blue bag stuff once a month around here.)

The grass is getting greener and the trees have started to show some green, which is exciting as it seems about a month later than it should be, but spring has arrived and Robin Redbreast is hoping around the yard along with flocks of Canada Geese that seem to prefer the farmer's field.  We've had no signs of squirrels, so we're preparing to return the trap we borrowed. 

Next week watch for an interesting "Country Life" story...'til then, our thoughts go out to all of you!  Wish you were here.


  1. That cake looks fantastic, no kidding. I wish you could do one for Celine's new baby girl.

    We have had one of the coldest April's on record temps around 7-10, cooler with the wind. We are at least a month late.

  2. Any name yet for the new baby? Thanks for the compliment, by the way. I'm hoping it will warm up for you soon, as I know how much you hate the cold!

  3. I overheard Michelle saying it looks like they are sticking with Alia, but not 100% sure.
