Emma's Pre-Cake . . .

I am making my beautiful cousin Emma's wedding cake in a few months . . . I was also going to make a cake for a baby shower this weekend . . . but the baby is coming earlier than thought . . . so I ended up making a "practice" cake just for fun . . . it is a tidge like the cake for the wedding . . . no worries Emma . . . it is a TIDGE like the final product will be . . . only completely different . . if that makes sense . . .
It has been a long week and I have been working on a power point presentation for a class tomorrow of people from the American Revolution . . . Nathan Hale and Francis Marion are personal favorite revolutionary heroes of mine . . . (along with Jefferson, Washington, Revere, Adams, etc . . .) I remember watching the Walt Disney movie about the "Swamp Fox" as a kid, played by a very young Leslie Nelson. It rocked! . . . still does.
Tomorrow night is girls night out for yours truly and the Southern Posse . . . away from the kids and the men folk . . . you'd think we never do this with how absolutely pumped my girls are to go out! (Given it has been a while . . .) I wish you all a fabulous weekend! Go Colts!
(Great find . . . I buy these scrapbook pages that are plastic and use them as cake liners . . . a cheap and fun addition to cake decor!)
