Happy 100th blog posting to me...

This entry is my 100th blog entry. I've been trying to figure out something special for such a momentous (to me at least) event, but I've been so busy with work that it's all slipping through the cracks.

However, a few weeks ago I was very fortunate to take a class from one of our guild members, Jacey. She taught four of us to make miniature cakes. These are all true to scale (I believe 1/8th). I am not a detail person at all and thought for sure that I would not be able to do any of them once I had seen what miniature actually meant. I had been thinking miniature = 3 inches or so, not the less than 1 inch wide that we ended up doing.

But Jacey is a beautiful, patient, and wonderful teacher and I actually was able to make the little tiny roses that you can see in the chocolate valentine cakes. It was a great way to spend the day. We all came away thrilled with our cakes and some of mine have become magnets and pins at people's cubicles at work.

And cakes are a good way to celebrate my 100th blog entry.



P.S. Work might actually maybe possibly be slowing down a wee bit and I hope to get back into more blogging in the next couple of weeks or so.
