Sunday me and my friend Aria (AKA Mrs. Superman) threw a shower for our good friend Cara.
First off let me tell you that Cara is the sweetest person ever and has been trying very hard to have a baby, so it had to be absolutely perfect.
So of course I went to Grandma Maude for the cake.
She made my wedding cake.
And also 10 and 6 years worth of perfect birthday cakes (including a 3D Pirate Ship that really was amazing).
This time she wanted to play with fondant, and she wanted me to help her.
I was actually really excited, because it kinda made me feel like I was going to work with Yoda. Only without the nasty ass swamp and and the X-Wing.
So Friday Bean & I packed up the kids and went over to Pa (AKA The Weiner Wrangler) and Maude's.
Maude and I rolled fondant, colored fondant and cut out polka dots in fondant. And while that doesn't really sound like alot of work, let me tell you - I was exhausted when we finally left at 11:00.
Maude and Pa were going to finish it all up for me, but Pa got tired, so Maud called me Saturday afternoon and asked if I could come over to help some more.
Obviously there was nothing I could say but yes, so I packed up the kids and headed back.
We rolled more fondant, and made a rainbow bow and put the fondant on the cake and then applied our bow and polka dots and I thought I was going to die.
We got it all done, and I'd post a picture but my computer is being a little bitch and won't let me. But it was adorable.
Fondant make look pretty, but its a bitch.
