Royal Icing Snowflakes

Shelby has been designing her "my super sweet 9th" Birthday cake for a couple of weeks now. She wants a winter themed cake in shades of blue and white with snowflakes and snowmen. I don't think I have ever made royal icing in my life, but it was surprisingly simple and easy to work with. Would've been even easier if I had some wax paper and templates to cheat from!lol Anyway, here are the snowflakes...I think they turned out pretty good for my first time, and seeing as how they are all hand piped if they will just hold together long enough to put some bling on Shelby's cake. BTW~These need to be sprinkled with luster dust to make them shine....was going to add clear sprinkles, but was out of those too!LOL Shelby came to me as I was piping the snowflakes and said "mom, I THINK that is ENOUGH snowflakes" all know me~go big or don't go!!! xoxoxox

Birthday Cake Ornaments

For my sweet little birthday girls I made ornaments to match their cakes. Their names were painted on the back along with the date. I loved seeing their faces light up when they opened their ornaments. Now they can remember their special day every year when they place the ornament on their tree. Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!!

God grant me....

God, grant me the...
Serenity to accept things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference
Patience for the things that take time
Appreciation for all that I have, and
Tolerance for those with different struggles
Freedom to live beyond the limitations of my past ways, the
Ability to feel your love for me and our love for each other and the
Strength to get up and try again even when I feel it is hopeless.

When I stand before God....

"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, I used everything you gave me".
