And here is cake #2. The background icing is supposed to look kinda like stucco.

I used to live right on the the Mississippi River in St. Paul. Loved it! Miss it! But this year.......Looks like there may be major flooding. The husband & I went for a walk in the old 'hood last night to take a look at the rising levels. They're predicting that Shepard Road (part of the Mississippi River Road that runs the entire lenghth of the River) will be closed & under water. Not good.
Stairway to duck bliss!
This is USUALLY a walking path.
And don't let anyone tell you the bridges in MN need any work. Not true. They're all just fine.
This guy support a railroad bridge that is used all the time.

So my choice may not have been the best seeing how life has turned recently. It seems all I blog about is cookies! And....here's another. These are the 'left overs' after I piped names on the best ones and brought them to my sisters for a cookie taste test. Her's vs. mine. Her flavor was better but my texture won.
This was my first attempt at gum paste. The flowers are super simple and i just kinda made up the bow. That will need more practice.

The second one, I pulled the table away from the wall so you can see it. It looks horribly dusty! I still need to find a couple of cute lamps and something to hang on the wall above it.
Thanks, Anna, for making cute stuff do-able for the rest of us!

Lately I have seen SO many cute frozen pop things. All these fun forms and recipies and books about and pics. I was really wanting to go buy a mold thingy and make some. I'm a little too cheap & lazy these days though, so this is my solution.
Works for me!
