Oh my goodness. I don't even know where to start. I have laundry to do, 2- 8x12's to bake, decorate and clean up after so my kitchen is perfect tomorrow morning, potato salad to make, room to finish painting and the house to clean. I don't think I'll be sleeping tonight. Thank Goodness I'm off from my day job tomorrow! Good luck ladies.

Well, I decided to go with cookies instead of cupcakes. I have all the ingredients for cookies so I don't have to make a run to the store again!!!

hey, can you pass me one of those beers??? I think my fireworks will look more authentic if they're a bit more squiggly from beer goggling icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Cakes are baked/baking, cupcakes are next. Icing the cookies happens between those batches. icon_razz.gif Icing the cuppies and cakes might happen tomorrow morning, depending on how late I manage to stay up tonight. icon_razz.gif

whew! Well, down to the last batch of cuppies that need to be made. icon_razz.gif About to start icing those cookies.

Got distracted because for SOME reason, my DH decided that he wanted to spend a little quality time, so we sat and watched TV for an hour. icon_razz.gif Lost the hour, but gained the cuddle time, so it's all good. icon_smile.gif

How's everyone else doing out there?

PS the best part is that now that I'm to the point of making icing, I get to close all the windows and turn the AC on!!!! Woohoo!!!!!

I'm in! I have food to make - just baked beans luckily! Plus a bunch of desserts - 2 dozen cookies for holiday cookie bouquets, red white and blue strawberries (dipped in colored white choc), a cheesecake, an ice cream dessert (has ice cream, cool whip, pudding in it), oh and since I invited people over, I have to do my least favorite thing in the whole wide world, CLEAN. yuck.
The worst part though...... I got a flat tire today and it put me so behind schedule that by the time I got it fixed and went shopping and took the kids to get fireworks, the liquor store was closed!! All I wanted was some dang Kahlua! Boo hoo . icon_cry.gif If anyone has some, have a drink for me, okay?

Good luck to all you ladies. I wish I needed to make something this weekend. But I think all this talk of decorating is inspiring me to make some cookies. I've been itching to do them for a while. I should also probably clean out my fridge from all the choc. syrup that dumped EVERYWHERE. Gross.

I'm here...but I have my mom in town to help me. She is actually cleaning my kitchen while I type!
I have started my daughter's 1st birthday cake - Classic Pooh and cake pop favors for the goody bags. Her birthday is the 4th of July but the party is not until the 5th. I'm baking tonight and decorating tomorrow.

I'm with YOU! LOL I LOVE to HATE Chef Ramsey!

Actually this afternoon I did a wedding cake and groom's cake for a wedding on Saturday. It's wrapped nicely in the frig at church and ready to be put together early Sat. Morning. I also decorated both the groom's and bride's cake tables while I was waiting for the icing to "crust". So, I'm actually DONE until October! YES!!

I'm here and cheering you on. Not baking tonight, but will be this weekend. Three scratch made carrot cakes for hubby, neighbor, and coworker; and as many fig cakes as I can. I made fig preserves monday night and I cooked down the figs that weren't firm enough for preserves. I mashed them while they were boiling in the syrup then I strained them. Now I have three wonderful pints of fig syrup! I refrigerated the mash and that's what I'm going to use to make cakes. The great part about fig cakes is that you don't have to frost them!

I'm sitting here typing and looking at pictures while my cake is settling. Did I mention I just had 2 frozen pina coladas because this day sucked. My bow wouldn't come together, my icing isn't getting navy blue and when I went to the store today, I forgot half the stuff I needed. I still need to make ice tea from garden mint, baked beans (for 1 party on Fri. and one Sat.) and then there is the cleaning!!! Maybe I can con DH into the my dreams.

Oh well, at least I know I'm not alone.

I am big time procrastinating... I have a cake due tomorrow at 4. SMBC covered blueberry/strawberry round cake .. made the cake but not the icing (easy peasy) .. will do that in the morning. I have made baked beans, sweet and spicy cole slaw and have the ribs marinating in the rub. I still need to dehusk the corn on the cobb and boil the eggs for the deviled eggs. Other then that I will throw some chips in a bowl and the others can worry about our dessert..

Everybody have a wonderful 4th!!

sitting here, waiting for the timer to buzz for the chocolate molds in the freezer that go on cupcakes... ingoring the dishes that need washed... depressed over the fact that my lil family (boyfriend included) were all asleep at 8pm while i sweat and curse away in the kitchen....

i will call it quits soon, but will be up at 6am to frost cupcakes, box the orders and attempt to make my children appear clean for the 10am pick up. if its a holday, we can start drinking in the morning, right? icon_razz.gif

*sigh* For some reason, this is just not happening tonight. I shoulda gone out and got that beer! LOL

but the last cuppies are in, the RI is beating, and hopefully I can get the cookies iced before too long. Fortunately, I chose fairly simple designs, with just two colors each, so hopefully that will go fairly quickly. icon_razz.gif I'm thinking as soon as those are done, I'll be hitting the sack, get up early tomorrow and do all the buttercream work. icon_razz.gif

My designs are getting simpler as the night goes on... icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Sitting here thinking about all I need to do. I have a birthday cake to do for Saturday it's a 2 teir. Have the cake baked, but thats it. Husband informed me this afternoon he wants me to make a cake to take to church tomorrow night. Not to mention I've been walking around for the past 2 weeks on what I thought was a sprain ankle...turns out it's fractured. So I have to stay off of it. How am I suppose to do cakes?!?!?!? And I'm so sick from being pregnant. I would really like a drink, but that aint happening being preggers...Good luck everyone!

Oh yeah, and since fell I haven't done much houswork. So the house is a DISASTER!!! And so much laundry!
