The girls have found a new favorite activity...beating on the pans and being as loud as possible. I don't mind the noise (and there's lots of it). So they only do it when it's just the 3 of us. =) I also had my first cake order for this weekend for someone outside of our family. Our good family friend Belinda Bassham wanted a cake for her son Jonathan who turned 30. I was excited to get to do this because I'd been wanting to see if I could do houndstooth. I decided on a pattern (which kept me up at night) and just free handed it. I think it turned out ok for my first time.
