Cake Decorating - Gumpaste and Fondant

I am now taking the third Wilton class (from my fabulous teacher Erin of Erin's Go To Cakes), and I am loving it. I am half way through the course and have so far learned how to make a fondant bow:


Calla lily and carnation (I love the carnations).

I can't wait for the next class when we learn daisies and mums!

Belated Happy New Years

Wow, I took a bit longer of break over the holidays that I was intending from blogging. I haven’t done a lot of baking or even cooking really since the end of the holidays and have spent a lot of time trying to get the house back in order and finding homes for things that have shown up over the holidays.

The spice drawer in my kitchen was a disaster (see what I mean).

A trip the the dollar store for some little jars and an evening of labeling later it now looks like this:

My quilting room has also been rearranged (I can not fully open the door to get in!), and I have been working on something to fill the blank space on the wall above the ironing board. The rulers have finally found a home - with easy access from my cutting area, and the catch all drawer has been emptied and my supplies are organized in a handy little organizer (I got it for 50% off at Michaels!). I will have to post pictures, as soon as I get around to taking some and not getting distracted by working or cleaning. Now hopefully I can get some of those projects left over from last year finished (there are only 5 quilts in various stages sitting around the room, along with other smaller projects that were started and never finished).
