It's a girl!

My college friend, Brooke is having a baby and I couldn't be more excited for her. She has been such a good friend of mine over the years and I can't wait for her to experience motherhood. There is just nothing like it. Last Tuesday, while swimming with friends and our babies I got a call from Brooke asking if I could make her a cake with the gender color in the middle. She was finding out the next day at 5pm (LA time) and there wasn't a bakery in Springfield that stayed open until 7pm. Well the next day was Zeda's birthday and we would be at Silver Dollar City. Since it was going to be 90 out, I knew we wouldn't be there all day so I agreed. I baked the cake on Tuesday and got home right at 7pm Wednesday to ice it. I started to ice the bottom and top so when she called all I needed to do was fill the middle with pink or blue and finish the sides.

I decided to try a new look. I'm not a cake decorator by any means but my friend, Jen said these roses were really easy to do. You didn't need to be an expert. Well, the girl was right. I think they turned out pretty good for my first time and I was able to do it in a jiffy! Click here to read the rest of the story.

Congrats Brooke and Jarod! We love you guys and I can. not. wait. to hold your little girl.
