This is the second baby shower cake I had the pleasure of doing last weekend.......this one was very special to me......here's the story......
about a month ago I won tickets on a local radio station to the Much Music Video Awards, along with that came special VIP status and a meet and greet to meet the NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK.....anyone who knows me KNOWS that as a teenage girl, these 5 guys were my LIFE.....
anyway......when I went with my good friend Kathy, we met the other winners and it was the coolest thing ever....we clicked right away and had the greatest night EVER....we hung out, met the New Kids, met Hedley and had one heck of a time....it was like we had been friends for years......
One of the girls, Melanie, is expecting her first baby in September, not only was I invited to the shower but had the honour of doing the cake........I had the best time ever and these girls are the best bunch of people anyone could ask for !!!!!!!!!!!
Congrats Melanie, and if you need anything, let me know !!!
Oh....one more thing......Melanie knows she is having a boy and is gonna name him Nolan......just like my 2nd boy...his name is Nolan.......HEY...we were meant to be friends!!!!!!
I had the pleasure of doing a couple of baby shower cakes this past weekend.....this in the first one, and I must say that I LOVE it.....the lady who ordered the cake, wanted the "Goodbye Tummy, Hello Mommy" saying on the cake with (2) figures, a pregnant lady and then a lady with her baby.....after that the design was up to me !!!
I wasn't here when she picked it up, but my hubby told me she loved it !!!
In my spare time I am a cake decorating instructor at Michaels Craft Store n Whitby, Richmond Hill and Markham......on July 12th all of the Ontario instructors had the pleasure of gathering for our annual instructor meeting where we get the inside scoop on new products and other goings on. The highlight of the meeting is the annual awards ceremony, where instructors are recognized for their accomplishments such as number of students taught and special supervisors awards. This year I knew I was getting my 100 and 250 students taught pins and recognition......what I did not know was that I was chosen my as the Supervisors Choice award for one on the best instructors in Canada.....I received beautiful bouquet of flowers, a plaque and a booklet to choose a spectacular gift.....I have chose a beautiful necklace....when I receive it I will let ya know.....I just want to say thanks to Tracey, the Wilton supervisor for Canada, for choosing me !!!!!!!
By the beautiful sea....that is where the bride I had the pleasure of doing a wedding cake for on July 12 got married. In March, Alexandra got married on the beach and on July 12th had a beautiful reception to celebrate with her family and friends. We carried the beach theme into the cake, and made her and her groom a cupcake tower complete with a seashell wedding cake with brown sugar sand and cupcakes with chocolate shells on top of each one.
I hope you had a fantastic reception and I can't wait to see more pictures of you and your hubby !!!
