The monkey cake, as requested... Luckily, Wilton has a pan for that... My first idea was to base it on a book that she loves right now, but that pan was discontinued... So, she got the birthday monkey. I think it turned out ok. Although, I don't think I would use the cookie for the hat again. No matter what Wilton recommends. It's just too heavy.
And, since there was leftover cookie dough, she got a few more cookies for her party. Sorry the picture is blurry... It didn't look blurry when I uploaded it... Ooops!
This week, we have a whole different party. Tomorrow, actually. My husband's sister is having her baby shower tomorrow. So, everyone gets to eat cake, look at sweet little baby things, and just generally celebrate a new baby's imminent arrival. It'll be fun. My other SIL (who's in charge of the shower) asked me ages ago to make the cake for that. So, that's what I'm into today. Baking and decorating. And blogging! Because, yes, I am aware that I was gone for way too long... (And I'm sort of taking advantage of Little Miss's visit to her grandmother's house.) I do have a long list of excuses I could provide for anyone who wants them. Let me know and I'll post some. ;) Oh, yes. And also I need to put the finishing touches on the baby gift and get that all bundled up today, as well... And, the kitchen will need to be hosed down after the baking marathon... And - ok, that's just no fun, listing all the things that I need to do. I think I'll just concentrate on the fun things like getting ready for the party tomorrow and squeezing Little Miss when she gets home...
Oh, yeah- quilty stuff. That's what this blog is supposed to be about, huh? Well, unfortunately, I don't have a whole lot to report. The only thing I've been able to do lately is the baby blanket for tomorrow. And I don't want to post pictures until after Baby's parents get to see it. Which reminds me- I need to take my camera downstairs and get pictures of it... So, I'll try to get pics of it up tomorrow or the next day. And that's all the news for now... That I can think of anyway. So, I'm gonna run and get the second layer of cake into the oven, and I'll see you all next time. Bye!
P.S. Blogger's spell check doesn't seem to be working today. (Kinda like all the grief it gave me over loading my pictures...) So, I'm sorry for any typos that I didn't catch. Please ignore them. Thanks.
