Less than an hour left in 2012, and I'm still not done with the old year!

Monday, December 31, 2012

Okay, so I admit it freely - I am a member of P. A. "Hello my name is Kathy, and I am a big procrastinator - maybe even the Queen of all procrastinators.......

Last month I let all my friends here know about ALL the different cakes and cupcakes DD # 1 ordered from DD # 2 ( also known as Meaganne, #4 offspring) AND promised faithfully to post pictures of them as well as pics of our precious little Emily enjoying her 1st birthday celebrations....

Which I have not done yet - why not you may ask? Well, it's totally because I procrastinate about pretty much everything....

So here I am, spending my last few minutes of 2012 doing what I should have done before the end of November...

These are the 2 dozen "Elmo and Cookie Monster" cupcakes Meaganne did for the grade ones at Jennifer's school, who have been reading to the baby every week all fall. (10 days before the actual birthday)

Here's the 12 " round "Kermit the Frog" cake for Jennifer's Scouting friends who all have adopted Emily as if she were their own. ( 5 days before the birthday)

This is the "number ONEwith Minnie Mouse" cake for the "Mommy and Me" friends. This cake was done for the Sunday right before Emily's birthday, along with 100 mini cupcakes (in 2 different flavours) for Jennifer's church. (4 days before the birthday)

Last but not least..... drum roll please......

This is the 2-tiered "Sesame Street characters with Elmo 'jumping out of the top" cake that was for the actual birthday day party with family.

This shows all the different characters that Meaganne piped onto the sides of the cake - all done free-hand!

Here are some shots of Emily enjoying her cakes......

And here is what a kidlet on a big sugar high looks like after ingesting all that cake Pretty scary thing to look at, isn't she ??? emoticon emoticon emoticon

These are some of the babies that were at the Mommy and Me party -

And, here she is all 'gussied up' for her 1st Birthday holding the BEST gifts ever - hangars! ...

    It's never too late, Kathy! I think your DD should start up her own cake business and maybe call it Meagan's Cakan-Bakan Shop.... she's that good! I've sampled her many salads and desserts, etc. and know just what a great cook she is. Loved the up dated photo's of Emily. Looks like a super sugar fix for all. emoticon emoticon
