I’m probably going to be beaten up for saying that, or at least get a lot of dirty looks but I will say it again and again… I love Mondays! All my orders are on Thursday-Sunday so Monday is MY “Friday”. On Sunday night while everyone’s moaning and groaning about having to go back to work on Monday, I have a big smile on my face asking, “Is it Monday yet? Is it Monday yet?”. I’m so relaxed today!
I know my life is going to get busier as my businesses grow so force-feeding myself a day off is so important. Even though all I thought about today was work and mentally had a panic attack about how much work I have to do before Ottawa… I got to do it in my PJs in my “Monday office” (bed) while watching movies and missed TV shows. I guess it all balances out at the end!
I got to make another Noah’s Ark cake this weekend. Remember the first one I made for my cutesy Aiden’s 2nd birthday? With all the *pow pow* (aka bright) colours? I decided to go another route this time around since my friend gave me complete executive decision-making powers over this cake, I decided to go with a PASTEL PALETTE. I made a few pastel cakes this year including Sabine’s First Communion Cake and Heffy-the-Elephant’s cake and even though I LOVED how they turned out, something didn’t look right. I love bright colours so going the pastel route was out of my comfort zone.
The ark floated in
This would be perfect for a TWINS’ birthday (but it wasn’t).
And I love my animals too!
This cake was ordered by a dear friend who wanted to get a cake for her husband and daughter’s joint birthday. I was wondering why, of all themes she wanted to get one with a BOAT and ANIMALS (although they’re uber cute!) and my question was answered today when she posted a picture and the following on my FB wall:
this theme has very special meaning for the birthday boy and birthday girl, as one has approached his middle adulthood and the other just entered young adulthood, how important it is to know that Jesus has prepared such amazing salvation, so that we are able to walk with Him day or night, young or old, and most of all, when all fail, His love never fail !!
Every cake has a story… and I love it when people invite me to be a part of their special moments!
