And yet one more cake post~

As you may have noticed, I didn't post last night, the reason being that I wasn't home! I stayed in town over night, as I worked until 10:30 and then had the DRH (Dining Room Host) shift at 6:30 this morning, so I thought it made the most sense to just stay put and get as much sleep as possible....

My parents were also not home last night, as they stayed with friends of ours up by Mylo. We have not seen these friends for a few years now, so they enjoyed the time to be able to catch up on what's happening in each others' lives.

The very good news is that we are all back home again now. :)

~Here is a picture of the wedding cake at Joshua & Esthers' reception. (Thank you so much Dad and Mom for driving so carefully over all those railroad tracks, and for setting it up and all, and for getting some pictures too!!!)

Oh, and here's a picture of my dad's cousin, Jerome, with his baaa-rthday cake. ;)
There! I think I'm done talking about cake for a while...
Tomorrow, Mom is going to Bismarck, but I get to stay home all day. I love being home!

Aww, poor dear you must be soo exhausted after such a looong week! So proud of you for working so hard and never are such a dear. :)

The cake it Lovely!! :D It looks splendid all put together! :) And I think it makes the cake look better to have each one different like that. It's soo impressive looking!

Have a good day of rest sweetie! :)
Love and Hugs!

P.S. - see that I'm doing better at keeping up with your blog posts? ;) HeHe!

Dear Cora,
I just love looking at pictures of your cakes--maybe even more than eating them. :)
I think that you really do have a ministry in your cake business--a mighty sweet ministry. ;) Seriously, though, I watched those people at the wedding. Something about a cake makes an event seem really special! You really DO bless people with your marvelous cake creations. How wonderful you are, my dear dear Cora!
I love you soooooo much,

Thank you for the sweet comments, Rachel, Molly and Mother. :)

I'm so excited for you and Morgan to be taking the class!!! Is this the level #1 class? I learned so much from Stella and am sure you are doing the same. :)

The fondant recipe I use is made with marshmallows. You can find it here: .
This fondant is really nice to work with and tastes good, in my opinion anyway. I've had several other people say they like how it tastes too, but then I've also had 1 young lady tell me she loved the cake I made, except for how the fondant tasted. :) Soooo, it might just be a matter of preference?

I would LOVE to see your cakes (pictures or the real thing) sometime! I still have that book that Mikayla loaned me on cakes. Would you like that back now? ;)

Hope this helps,
