Chocolate cake with a delicious salted caramel frosting. Mmmm...

About a month and a half ago I decided I needed to get started on a blanket for Abby since I hadn't made one yet. After many trips to the fabric store and hours agonizing over which fabric was best and which fabric went with the others I finally purchased some. After a few trips up to see my mother we finished Abby's quilt! I would never have been able to accomplish this without the help of my very talented mother. I am VERY happy with how it turned out(I've never made a quilt before). We decided not to give it to Abby right away but to wait until her birthday in a few months.

On a less happier note, here is a picture of what happened to my windshield on one of my trips up to work on the quilt. Still waiting on the trucking company's insurance to let us know if they will pay to get it fixed.

Recent cakes...

Just thought I would share some of the cakes I have done in recent weeks.

This simple birthday cake was done for a friend who is an inspiration to me.

An 88th birthday celebrated at a family reunion. The tree represents the birthday "boy"s love of creating new apple varieties in his orchard and also his posterity who came to celebrate with him.
(Farther down the cake it does say happy birthday!)

This cake was also for the birthday/family reunion but was an option for the gluten free eaters in this family.
