Over the weekend they got time with their 'Auntie' Francine doing something that they get to do each time she visits. Learning more about cake decorating. Because she makes cakes professionally and each time she comes over they take on a project together - to produce a magnificent cake covered with as many things as they can possibly make. This is not a less is more situation.

I love it!
I love that too!
Many of these flowers and dragonflies are still to be painted. They can spend hours doing it. Isn't it great?!! And the cake is going to be chocolate. Woohoo! Life is looking pretty good around here. As long as they remember to keep those sugar coated hands off my fabric all will stay happy too.
Looks like lots of tastey fun. Hope you enjoy getting your friend to yourself this week :)ReplyDelete
I am impressed with your maturity Susan, first the Bramble Patch queue and now sharing your me time! You deserve a girly weekend for all your good behavior ;-)ReplyDelete
Running away sounds like a good plan. I'm sure some wine will also be involved in the time you spend with Auntie Francine as well.ReplyDelete
Love those fondant decorations. I could seriously use a lesson in making those.
Glad to hear you're all having some fun!
Wow the girls decorations are impressive. You'll be able to put the girls to use, making the sugar decorations and selling them so that they can earn their keep, lol!ReplyDelete
Running away from home sounds like fun, have a great time!
