Here's to future dreams

So for those of you that know me, you know that I love baking. More recently I've really wanted to get into cake decorating. My sister has also decided to get into cake decorating. We both would like to take the Wilton classes at Michaels and hope to do so soon. Once we perfect it we would love to open up our own little wedding business. Cindy and I would do cakes, our sister in law Kate would do Photography and I think Trevor would learn about flowers and do arrangements, or he can handle the financial aspect of it. There would be more involved, I think we would offer chair covers, table cloths, etc. Anyway, back to the baking. I only have 1 pastry bag and 3 tips right now but I do what I can with it. My husband I think is starting to hate my desire to learn cake decorating because it means that I make cake a lot, which if you know us, you know we don't need it at all.

Today instead of cleaning like I should have done I decided to make cookies. I made oatmeal banana chocolate chip cookies and sugar cookies. The sugar cookies were in the shape of footballs, or at least what was supposed to be a football. Some of them turned out more circular that I would have liked but they were tasty. I'm trying to perfect buttercream and decorating with buttercream. My sister tends to like working with fondant more so I figure it's probably good that each of us likes working with a different medium. This is the plate I'll send with my husband to work tomorrow. Since we don't all this food sitting around in our house, sending it to work with him is the perfect solution! I just hope the people he works with don't get tired of the baked goods. A girl's gotta practice!!!
