Wedding season is approaching....

I have lots of fun stuff to blog about...a cat adoption, a TNR adventure, cake baking and decorating....but those tales will have to wait for another day. I need to wrap up my day and get my workout done (am in week 6 of the P90X pain, no gain :)!!). I just wanted to share what has been on my table for awhile. I finally finished a batch of custom wedding cake toppers today.

Ellies, Penguins, Boston College Baldwin Eagles and Kansas Jayhawks with a tiny pup named Minnie...

Learning some sweet new skills....

I have been taking the Wilton Basics Cake Decorating class at Hobby Lobby this month. Ever since I got hooked on the Cake Boss show, I have been dying to learn how to decorate cakes!! I have always loved to bake, so I figured it was time to acquire the skills to make my treats look colorful and whimsical.

Last night, we finally got to the fun stuff...experimenting with different types of icing flowers. Next month, I will be taking the fondant and gum paste class which should be even more exciting. I am really anxious to start sculpting SnipPet-y critters with sugar!

Here are my "shaggy mum" cupcakes...

My BFF...Miss Munks

Punkamunk has been with us for 8 months this week and she is truly my best little friend. She lives in my big art room because she hates other cats and due to her heart condition she needs to remain stress free. The perk of this for both of us is that we spend all day together. When I am on the computer, she sits right in front of the keyboard and washes my hands while I helpful! When I am sculpting and painting, she sits on my table and supervises. When I need a power nap in my big chaise chair, she lays her head next to mine on the pillow. When I exercise with my workout DVDs, she chases her balls or lies down next to me while I do crunches and push ups. She even rubs my face while I am doing downward dog....the purrfect encouragement during a hard yoga session!

Punkamunk, you are the best friend that a girl could ever hope for. Someone else's loss was certainly my gain! I love you, little butterball lady.
