So its been forever since I have been on here Just need to get this off my chest!
So I'm in the military and recently came back from a 8 month deployment. While I was gone my poor husband had to pack up the house and move. So its been over a yr since I have done a cake and a good friend of my had asked me to do her baby shower cake, no big deal, I've got this. Well I sit down this afternoon to start making flowers, simple enough, so I thought. I start to pull out my supplies and my box with most of what I need is MIA! My huz is out of town so he cant help me look for it. I'm tearing everything apart from top to bottom. I had golf clubs, boxes, and a random assortment of other things fall on my head in the process. Still no box after about 2 hrs of searching high and low I give up and head to walmart. I figure I'll just get what I need to get this cake done. Get in there and well they only have a few of the tips that I need. Next stop, Michaels. Get there grab the others that i will need and home I go. Get home, get to making some royal frosting, go to grab the colors I will need, and then it dawns on me......THE BOX!!!!! The colors are n the box NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I do not feel like going back out. I remember that I have another small box and I may have some colors stashed in there. I only need to makes some shades of pink and an orange. i open the box and I find red and golden yellow! yay me, with this I manage to get my shades of pink and some sort of an orange by mixing the 2 colors. Now Im sitting on my couch, flowers are made. Tomorrow I will bake and decorate the cake. I will have a make a trip to the store and buy some moss green, but that's ok tomorrow will hopefully be a better day in the world of cakes for me! Fingers are crossed that it will be anyway!!
Hope that my craptastic day made somebody's day a little bit brighter!
