Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

Finally Friday!

Here is a picture of my cake from Course 3. (I forgot to take a pic with my camera at home and brought the cake to work so its a pic from my phone!) We are learning how to use fondant. The bow is not as cute as I would have liked, but that's because you are supposed to let it harden before attaching, but we did it in class, so it had to be done then. Overall, I think it turned out pretty darn cute, especially for my first entire fondant cake. The only other time I used fondant was for my watermelon cake and I only used one 3 inch tall piece around the outside of it. This was a little more difficult. Next week, we are making more flowers, and the week after is our final Course 3 cake - a wedding cake with tiers and of course, more flowers! We are all out of whack with our class schedule because of teacher taking a week off for vacation, then Hurricane.Ike. But she said we'll just chug along and pay no attention to the calendar months. Course 4 is next - more super fun stuff with fondant and gum paste! This is really the only class anyone wants to take, but of course you have to take them all to build up your skills.

Tomorrow is Dean's 35th (!) high school reunion - rescheduled due to Ike. We had to decline 2 other parties that night in lieu of hanging out with some old dudes. Hopefully they will be going to bed early and we can ditch those old fogies and make it to at least 1 other party!

As the 11 week mark is approaching and my pants are getting tighter, I have decided to tell the rest of my team next week. And how better to share the news than over cake! I found a super cute idea on a cake site that I am making on Sunday to bring to a team meeting on Monday. Hopefully they get the idea and not just think its another cake from class!!!

Have a fabulous weekend!

P.S. What's up with someone finding my blog based on a Google search called "Peanut Photo." I am pretty sure they were not looking for an u/s when they came across my page!!! LOL

6 nice things to say...:

What a gorgeous cake! I would love to take a cake class, especially once that focused on fondant.

I'm looking forward to the pg announcing cake :-)
