We Interrupt This Writing Session to Bring You.....CAKE!!!

All right, I must confess.....I'm am fairly burned out on all things writing related at the moment :-) I've been on a non-stop roller coaster since last year and while it has been an amazing ride, I'm very ready for a nice break. (I'm also aware this will last approximately a day and a half before I start itching to write something again, but with a book due tomorrow and another releasing next month, right now all I want is a nap lol)

Anyhow, I thought I'd share a few pics of something else I like to do. Decorating cakes :D I don't get to do this very often - my husband doesn't like cake (I know, he's totally weird) so I pretty much only make them twice a year for my kids' birthdays. But here are a few I've made.

My son's 6th birthday:

Son's 9th birthday

Son's 5th birthday 

Son's 8th birthday

Stepson's girlfriend's birthday :)

Kids' Spring Parties at school

 Daughter's 8th birthday (and the nail polish bottles in the background are marshmallow and tootsie rolls) :D

Daughter's friend's 10th birthday

And now, back into the writing cave I go :-) Tomorrow, I'll send this baby to my editor and then...I think I might make a celebratory cake :-D

Count me in for cake! I've never gotten too heavily into decorating them, but a local gluten-free, dairy-free bakery opened up recently and I'd love to have them do a celebratory cake for me!

Cake! These are so fabulous! I am a big fan of edible glitter so I adore those cupcakes! <3

WOW. Those are so cool. I especially love the one you made for your daughter's 8th birthday. It's gorgeous!! I'm totally using the marshmallow idea for my own daughter's birthday in a few months...not attempting the cake, tho. ;)
