About 2 months ago my good friend told me he was going to be an uncle again, for the fourth time. Initially the doctors thought the baby was going to be a girl, but it looks like he was playing his first practical joke because upon a second (or third?) ultra sound, it looks like she is actually a he. Of course I offered to make the cake for the baby shower. With a little time off of work and a lot of help from my friend and the discovery that the block were huge and would actually feed 3 people each (so I didn't need to make as many), I was able to pull it off. They're not quite as pretty as I would like, and I can't take credit for the lion, apple or duck, but I think they turned out super cute (and tasty too - yay leftovers!).
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
