Here is the BIG cake for the family reunion. I am taking a break so I can see it with fresh eyes after lunch. The candles will go on top so I don't want to add a lot more there. It is 4 layers (staggered), 4.5 pounds of icing (so far). I had planned on putting a border on the front edge of each layer, but now think that may be too much. What do you think, border or no.



The colors are brighter, but the white causes the flash to wash them out. I'll try to get a better pic when it is finished.

    Thanks so much for your input. I tend to keep going and over do. DH agrees so it is now officially finished (except for putting the candles on). One of the birthday people e-mailed and they won't be able to make it. Perhaps things will change at the last minute and they can come. Now I just gotta keep from eating!

A walk in the woods.

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Today was a very lovely day. It got up to 42, sunny, perhaps a bit windier than I would like, but such an improvement over the past few days. DH and I hit the woods for a nice walk on the trail.



Didn't see any wild life this time, but spring is not far off. Tomorrow we will try to break out the bike and get a nice ride in. YIPPEE.

Now, off to work on the birthday cake for Saturday.

    Haha, you'd need snowshoes and poles to go out for a hike where I live today. We are in the 12-24" range in NY for snowfall! We've got an excellent start to that today so far! Thanks for the reminder that spring IS coming!! :)

I'm a brownie

Friday, February 19, 2010

If all of the eight desserts listed below were sitting in front of you, which would you choose? (Sorry, you can only pick one!) Trust me....this is very accurate. Pick your dessert, and then look to see what psychiatrists think about you.

REMEMBER - No Cheating. Make your choice before you check the meaning.

Here are your choices:


1. Angel Food Cake

2. Brownies

3. Lemon Meringue Pie

4. Vanilla Cake With Chocolate Icing

5. Strawberry Short Cake

6. Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Icing

7. Ice Cream

8. Carrot Cake

No, you can't change your mind once you scroll down, so think carefully about what your choice will be.


OK - Now that you've made your choice, this is what the researchers say about you... SCROLL DOWN---No Cheating


1. ANGEL FOOD CAKE -- Sweet, loving, cuddly. You love all warm and fuzzy items. A little nutty at times. Sometimes you need an ice cream cone at the end of the day. Others perceive you as being child like and immature at times.



2. BROWNIES -- You are adventurous, love new ideas, and are a champion of underdogs and a slayer of dragons. When tempers flare up you whip out your saber. You are always the oddball with a unique sense of humor and direction. You tend to be very loyal.



3. LEMON MERINGUE -- Smooth, sexy, & articulate with your hands, you are an excellent care giver and a good teacher.But don't try to walk and chew gum at the same time. A bit of a diva at times, you set your own style because you do your own thing. You shine when it comes to helping others and have many friends.


4. VANILLA CAKE WITH CHOCOLATE ICING -- Fun-loving, sassy, humorous, not very grounded in life; very indecisive and lacking motivation. Everyone enjoys being around you, but you are a practical joker. Others should be cautious in making you mad. However, you are a friend for life.



5.. STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE -- Romantic, warm, loving. You care about other people, can be counted on in a pinch and expect the same in return. Intuitively keen. You can be very emotional at times but a true person in every way.You liketo do things for yourself and help others learn about themselves.



6. CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH CHOCOLATE ICING-- Sexy; always ready to give and receive. Very creative, adventurous, ambitious,and passionate. You can appear to have a cold exterior but are warm on the inside. Not afraid to take chances. Will not settle for anything average in life. Love to laugh.



7. ICE CREAM -- You like sports, whether it be baseball, football, basketball, or soccer. If you could, you would like to participate, but you enjoy watching sports. You don't like to give up the remote control. You tend to beself-centered and high maintenance.



8. CARROT CAKE -- You are a very fun loving person, who likes to laugh. You are fun to be with. People like to hangout with you. You are a very warm hearted person and a little quirky at times. You have many loyal friends.. You were meant to lead and teach others. A wonderful role model.

Cowboy Boots (one more from my dad)

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

The Cowboy Boots (Anyone who has ever dressed a child will love this one!)

Did you hear about the Texas teacher who was helping one of her kindergarten students put on his cowboy boots?

He asked for help and she could see why..

Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little boots still didn't want to go on. By the time they got the second boot on, she had worked up a sweat.

She almost cried when the little boy said, 'Teacher, they're on the wrong feet.' She looked, and sure enough, they were. It wasn't any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right feet...

He then announced, 'These aren't my boots.'

She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, 'Why didn't you say so?' like she wanted to. Once again, she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his little feet. No sooner had they gotten the boots off when he said, 'They're my brother's boots. My mom made me wear 'em.'

Now she didn't know if she should laugh or cry. But, she mustered up what grace and courage she had left to wrestle the boots on his feet again.

Helping him into his coat, she asked, 'Now, where are your mittens?'

He said, 'I stuffed 'em in the toes of my boots.'
