I had been hoping for more cakes to do but no cake orders yet. I think I might make a cake just for the fun of it and take it to work or something. If I have the time I will definitely work on that this week. My mom, one of my best friend's, my boy friend and his brother, and a couple more all have birthdays in March! So I can't wait to be busy and covered in flour and buttercream again ^_^ I also might go and take another Michaels class once I get some money and find my certificate for the first class...don't really want to have to take that one again. So here is an older picture of my blue tongue skink baby, Lafoo. I'm off to take a midterm now, wish me luck!

After taking some Valentines cupcakes to class with me Monday I have a couple of people interested in ordering from me! I have one order from my German teacher. I have never made a Pineapple Upside-Down Cake but I LOVE playing with new recipes. I found a vegan one that she thought sounded good from Vegan Dream and I got to work. I changed up the recipe a bit to fit her personal requests and tried to go with my own look instead of the traditional rings on top. It was a quick and easy cake to put together but it was very small. I was expecting to fill the bunt cake pan I was using but it only came up about half way so if you want to make this recipe for more than just a couple people I would really suggest doubling it. I like the way it turned out and I hope my teacher and her husband are not disappointed!

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope everyone had a lovely one, I certainly did! My wonderful boyfriend came to see me at school and took me out to our favorite restaurant in Greenville, Tripps. He brought me a dozen roses as well :) Before hecame over I was busy the whole morning making sweet bite sized treats for him. Red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting on one plate and Chocolate cake with buttercream frosting on another. I love making cupcakes so much because you can decorate each one a different way as opposed to an entire cake. I took the rest to my classmates today which was much appreciated in my noon class. I'm hoping to get some cake orders after this since I also gave out my card with the cuppy cakes. I have a LOT of birthdays coming up in March so I will be a very busy baker and blogger soon. <3 span="span">3>

I am not much of a football fan. I have never sat through an entire football game but I do root for teams from the cities I've lived in. Since my brother was born in Wisconsin I've been a Packer fan most of my life. SOO glad they won the super bowl! I think I watched the Black Eyed Peas half time show and maybe 10 min of the game off and on. Good job guys, suck it Stealer Fans! ~.^
