Have you been atgraciesplace and I haven't been here? I promise, I'm not AWOL nor MIA.

I've been in the jungle.  The mighty jungle.  Where the lion sleeps, tonight.  haha!

Actually, the lion isn't sleeping.  That's because there's a baby sleeping in his bed! I've been in this jungle for the last week.

There she is...sleeping away....

It was such fun to make! A bit nerve wracking, but anything I tackle does that to me. Or maybe I do it to myself - who really knows?! Each tier is a 3 layer vanilla cake, filled with vanilla buttercream. The outside decorations and pink icing are fondant, and the grass is buttercream. Turned out kinda pretty in my opinion. What do you think?

Do you bake? Do you do fancy things or stick to everyday desserts? There's so much to try in the baking world. Let me know when you take your next adventure!

Sewing the Seeds of Spring

So, remember last week, when I said I started some seeds for my garden? Well, this is what that looks like:

Look who came to visit :)

Chocolate cake, buttercream icing and monster eyes!

Well, a whole passel of these guys came to visit, and as soon as they did, they were gone! We had some happy neighbour kids..though, I'm not sure how thrilled their parents were, what with all the sugar.  Oh well, they're not my kids! Heehee!

I hope you all had a great Easter weekend, and are beating the sugar hangover :) 

I treated myself to some yarn the other day...I'll have to let you in on that one. 

Posts have been sporadic for a bit.  My hope is to blog more, now that spring is here, and I've started planting my seeds for my garden.  I'll show you some pics when they start to "show".  Feels like having a baby :)

Did you start your garden seeds this weekend? It was a great one for getting outside and enjoying the sun.  We did that, and cleaned up most of the dog mess....that one's like laundry.  The never-ending pile...
