A late 4th

So much for my commitment to blog at least once a week. I didn't make once a month. It's summer. That's the excuse I'm going with for now.

I made another cake for the 4th. Cakes are fun to make but so expensive! I've got to figure out how to make my own fondant. I think I figured this cake cost about $30 in supplies to make. Gotta have a decent cake under all that work so that costs more. Same with the frosting. Then I was out of coupons for Michaels so I had to pay full price for fondant. The woes of a baker.

I also made some cookies for the occasion. I like how these came together on a platter. Most of the time I am asked to individually bag them so I never see them all piled up and yummy looking.

A little more sweet:

Kate ready for bed with the dolls my mom made me. Don't know how she sleeps with all that stuff crammed in her bed but she loves it as you can see.

Happy July!
