Another Busy Day

We have been crazy every day around here. I love making cakes but I have such a small kitchen that it takes up every spot in it every time I make one, then I am usually so sick of being in my kitchen I don't even want to clean it so it takes a couple days to recoup from the event. But this doesn't stop me from making one or four every weekend :)

This is one I did for Mikes cousin Sara's oldest girl Savanna. I like how it turned out even though it isn't exactly what I had pictured when I envisioned it days prior.

Funny story: I was looking at this picture and realized I spelled surprise wrong. I have never been the best at spelling so I always double check my spelling by usng google or asking someone. The night I made this cake I was up till 3:30 am, so I was kinda tired, but I remember looking on the invitation that Sara sent me to make sure it was a surprise and while I was looking I figured how she spelt "surprise" was right. So I wrote "Suprise", I even said it slow a few times to make sure the spelling made sense. WELL, I WAS WRONG!!!! Didn't notice till a few days after the party amd I called Sara and told her I was sorry, she said nobody even noticed the spelling. What a relief. I decided if anyone asks about it in the future I will just say it's an inside joke, ha. This cake I did last second for a lady in the ward. It is a reveal cake. They were having a party to tell everyone what sex their baby was. The inside is blue for a boy of course. I had fun doing this one, not alot of pressure, she said as long as it looks like a baby cake. DONE!We threw Janet a surprise 50th birthday party (I will post pics and details later). This is her cake, she doesn't like fondant so I did all buttercream and it was really yummy. I didn't like this cake so much though, I don't know why but it didn't look the way I wanted it to, oh well, it's done and she liked it.

They are clean clothes, I just had them thrown there cause we were organizing drawers and closets. The boys like to do funny things with the babies and take pictures.

Eighmey gets very tired some days, must mean she played hard at school. This day she woke up pretty early so when she got home from school she crashed, but not before she ate the whole bag of marshmellows. Well I guess she didn't eat the WHOLE thing seems they are laying all over her. This cracked me up, like she passed out due to too much sugar, haha.

Jaimins Baptism and Kids party

Jaimin with Max, they got baptised together, they also share a birthday, Jaimin is older by like 12 hours :)

This is the first time we have had to do stake baptisms, in Taylor they are so small we got to do our baptism by ourselves and whenever we wanted. It was nice though having another family sharing this day with us. They did great with their talk and song, it was perfect.

Jaimin and Mike before the baptism

he was kinda nervous about getting "dunked"Us before the baptismOKAY.....CAKE TIME

Eighmey and her cake, she wanted me to make a cake for her that I had just made for a friend but it was pretty big so I made a mini and made it more "Eighmey". (in this pic Eighmey had already bumped her name on the cake :( )

Madden absolutely loved his cake... he had loved anything Thomas the train for a year or so now so when I was asking the kids what kinds of cakes they wanted I knew just the one for Madden. All 3 birthday babes, I love how mini Eighmey and Maddens are :)

Grandpa Starkes (my dad) bithday was the same day as we planned the kids party so I couldn't leave him out. Any chance to amke a cake I say. It was so late when I was making these cakes I wish I would have thought to say "gone fishin' "...its just more hick without the G :)Face shot of ThomasJaimins cake, he wanted camo and something with the army guys so I put my thinkin' cap on and BAM, and numero ocho.Even was camo on the inside, yeah i'm THAT good. HA!

Thomas and Monster trucks, what else could a 3 year old boy ask for.Madden eating all the black on his cake.After the party we all went outside and rode all the bikes and motorcycles and the famous Go Cart grandpa built. Only pic I took was Chancy on it, his head kept hitting the top bar. So we had a great day full of family and fun. My dad had to hurry and leave to visit his dad, kids call him "Grandpa old", or "Grandpa Starkes old" so we know which grandpa Starkes they are talking about. He ended up in the hospital the night before having a stroke. He got an MRI and it showed he had a full on stroke caused by a small heart attack. My dad says he seems fine just a little slow at speaking. Hope he bounces back quick.
