Week 15 - “I Heart Desserts” Photo Challenge!



I am really not excited about this weeks theme ... I cannot believe http://www.iheartfaces.com/ is hosting a challenge like this when I am right in the middle of my diet! Who is going to take the blame for the weight gain... How in the world am I going to go visit other blogs to see their pictures... It isn't fair and not a good start to my week! LOL! This will be a good testimant to my self will power... I will let you know how that goes after I finish all the chocolate from my kids' easter basket!

This picture is from my sisters baby shower. I made a 3 layer fondant cake. For all that know me I am a self -taught fondant cake maker who has no idea what I am doing... I thought at first it would be like playing with play-dough.... and after watching online tutorials it was much more then baking a cake and throwing on some icing... I realized that when I first started making the marshmellow fondant what a "sticky" mess I had gotten myself into! LITERALLY! Anyone ever made homemade fondant? It is the messiest event and my kids laways ask why I don't let them help me make fondant! I am sure to a kid it looks like a lot of fun!

This is #5 cake I have made!

No, I am definitely not pregnant!! :) One day in the distant future maybe!! Love the pictures with Nana. Brittney heard back from the dr. All the tests came back negative for CMV except one that showed the antibody for it. The positive result might just be a fluke, so just to be on the safe side, she is going to go have one more test done. Hopefully everything is fine and it isn't CMV. The dr. said it is really rare to have two babies with it, but he has saw it when he was in med school. Pray for a healthy, chubby baby!! :)
