Busy Bee

Hey you all I'd like to introduce myself..... Naw you know me I've just been super busy.  Buzzing around here doing home things, party things and ya wedding things..  Summer is always a busy time for me.  Recently one of my really good friends called me and asked me to help with her daughters wedding, "Heck ya I said".  Then she let me know that it was on July 23rd and outside WOW can you say hot tamale?  Well with that said you all of you know how I love weddings and we've known the bride since her and Emily were in second grade.  She is one of Emilys best friends and we consider her  family.  It will be a simple Vintage Chic wedding and you know how I love vintage weddings. 
 Emily is the Matron Of Honor and we are in the middle of planning the shower.  We want it to be a little vintage and a little funky.  We don't know if we want to do cupcakes or a cake.  I have found several cakes online that I love and think I can make.  Ya I could buy it but I love the way these look simple and different.

Love the ruffled look on a cute cake plate stand.  Plus it looks yummy with all that frosting.

I also love love this rose cake, plus it looks super simple and I Am Baker gives a tutorial on how to do it.  I'm not a cake decorator but I think I can do this one.  Decisions decisions decisions sometimes it's hard especially when your doing it for friends you just want everything perfect.  Is anything ever perfect?  Nope and really it looks better if it's not.
Well I'm off to to some planning, yard work and cleaning on the house I'm getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow plus having family over for the fourth so there is tons to do since I will be in bed for a couple of days.  Wish me luck I don't like dentist.  Yuck!


  1. I was wondering what you've been up to lately, but I usually assume this time of year folks are on vacation. You are such a sweet friend to help with the wedding, and I think the second cake is absolutely gorgeous. Let us know how it turns out! I want to see pictures of the wedding!

  2. Good luck at the dentist! It wasn't bad when I did it. Hope you have a good dentist! Just have some of your favorite ice cream on reserve....THAT is always the best part of a wisdom tooth removal!

    Have a lovely fourth of July with your family and friends....take pictures of your rose cake, ok?

  3. Please show us what cake you decide on. I am so totally impressed that you would even attempt it. I know you will do great. Hope your mouth is all healed.
