Cake Time!

Sarah and I are half way through taking a Wilton cake decorating class. Last night we each learned to do a shaped pan cake with multiple colored frosting.

I've wanted to take one of these classes for years and just never had done it. We watched a movie called "The Bucket List" and we started talking about the things each of us wants to do in our lives before we "kick the bucket". We decided the one thing wrong with the movie was that it was sad, so we decided we would think about the things we want to do with our life instead of thinking so much about the end of our lives. Kevin decided a better name would be to call it our "non-bucket list!" So I can tick the first thing off my "non-bucket list."

So, Sarah said she'd take the class with me. It's been a great mom/daughter activity! We stop by Starbucks before class and each get a latte. When we are in Starbucks it reminds me how young and full of energy she is as she loves the atmosphere there with the college students and their laptops buzzing away. It's times like these that I'm so excited to see the path her life takes and the wonderful road she has to travel. And mostly I'm wonderfully happy that she's so excited about her life.

For this week's assignment, Sarah picked a purse shaped pan and I made a butterfly. Yes, it's a pink purse! Next week we are making sheet cakes with flowers and clowns on them. I'm not real sure about the clowns as they kind of freak me out, but the teacher said I can leave the heads off! So, I'll probably have clown bodies without heads!

GREAT job! If you need a list of birthday and anniversary dates--I can provide them. Looks like a lot of fun. Keep up the good work.

I've always wanted to do this too! Maybe my 20 year old and I can do this next summer.
Show your next cakes as well.

Wow, I'm impressed! This was a great mother/daughter bonding time - just so much to look forward to... Love your non-Bucket List idea :)

Looks like lots of fun! I've always wanted to try that as well. Might have to one day.
