Who is up for a Monster Migas Plate challenge? Whether you have fixed life insurance rates or not won’t matter. The bottom line us, you should have life insurance if you intend to finish this tray of food! This is seven pounds of eggs, cheese, pico de gallo and corn chips. As if that weren’t enough, you also get a side of refried beans, home fries and tortillas. This is definitely one of those man versus food moments! Sorry, but food will have to win. A two-egg omelet is all that I really need.
The next best thing to us mint coins are coins we can actually eat. *wink* So they don’t make jingling sounds! That’s fine with me. I had the hardest time looking for gold coins when I made this Chinese New Year-themed cake. I sent hubby everywhere in search of these coins. In the end, he found them at a party supplies store. You won’t believe how happy that made me! The other alternative was to make the coins out of gum paste. That was not an option because of time constraints. I’m glad the cake gods were on my side. Cha-ching! Cha-ching!

This was the birthday cake I made last year for my daughter’s teacher. It was only a few weeks into the school year and I haven’t really gotten to know the teacher all that much just yet. My daughter did tell me her teacher loved chocolate and the color red. This was not my best work but I can only do so much for an hour…or two. I still think it’s ok looking coming from someone who grew up thinking she’ll be wearing a lab coat to work when she grows up. Haha. Excuses excuses.
For the second year in a row, we went strawberry picking with friends at Sweet Berry Farm. True to its name, Sweet Berry Farm grows some sweet sweet strawberries! I just love the sight of row after row after row of these bright red sweet somethings! It would be a dream come true if someday, we find ourselves with a farm that is abundantly filled with fruits and veggies that we truly love. For now, I will have to start small. I should probably start with an herb garden. I’ve already got the seeds and some soil. All I need to do now is check out the outdoor planters at SimplyPlanters.com and soon! Wish me luck?

Ahhh, to be young and free from such worries and nagging questions as Hormone replacement therapy. I made this super fun Barney and friends cake for the second birthday of a sweet little girl. Sculpting the figures from fondant/gumpaste turned out to be very time consuming. In the end, all the hard work paid off because the birhtday girl and her family truly loved the cake. I loved the cake, too! I especially liked how everything just came together in the end.Newer Posts »
