I did get 2 cakes finished.
This one is for two of our little neighbor children who celebrate their birthdays close together. Their mommy came over to pick it up and she had their new baby along, so Mom and I enjoyed a slight break in our work and played with the baby while her mommy ran over to some other neighbors to pick up her other son. (I think Mom took pictures on her camera, but they're not loaded on the computer yet so, consequently, I can't post them yet.)
I made this cake for my dad's cousin, Jerome, whose birthday was today. My parents have invited him here for a birthday meal tomorrow, so Mom asked me to make him a cake (plus she paid for the ingredients! :) ) Jerome is in the middle of lambing right now, so I thought sheep on his birthday cake would be most appropriate!
I also got the wedding cakes baked: 2-14 inch; 2-10 inch; and 2-6 inch cakes. Then I assembled them; crumb-coated them; iced them and started working on the Cornelli lace.... Tomorrow I'll be putting the roses on, so I'd appreciate prayers for that to go well-----and I'd be glad for any advice that a reader may have about how to get large roses to stay up on the side of a cake?
