My recent cakes!

I have been asked by a good friend if I would make her wedding cake in May. Since most wedding cakes are made with fondant(the really smooth icing) I decided I should learn how to use it. Turns out she wants a buttercream wedding cake, but it was fun learning to do fondant anyway. Here are a few of my first cakes.

This First one I made was for a girl in my ward who just had a baby girl. Her name is June and she is so adorable with a lot of dark hair.
This one was a bit more challanging. I think I need to get used to the fondant before I try one this challanging again. I thought I had enough fondant, then I didn't, and the fondant ripped at the corners. It was frustrating, but you get the idea of what I wanted the cake to look like right?

This one was a lot of fun. I make it for Easter. It worked out well, except the chicken legs would not stay up by themselves, so I had to prop them up with tooth picks. I still think it turned out pretty cute!

You can't fake one of these!

Megan's been feeling a little weird lately, and when she came home from her workout today she was feeling pretty nauseous, so she's been wondering if she might be pregnant. We were pretty sure that she wouldn't be, but she wanted to take a test anyway. SURPRISE! This is the test she handed me about an hour ago. How crazy that we would actually find out we are pregnant on April Fool's Day! Nobody's going to believe it's true, but you can't really make up a fake test.

(But your pregnant sister-in-law can....)

I am pretty dissapointed with myself for falling for this, especially after listening to several fake pregnancy announcements this morning. I have to say, it was pretty well thought out and executed - I even thought I saw the beginning of tears in Megan's eyes when she came out of the bathroom! Geez....

I'm gonna have to get her back eventually.
