And the Oscar Goes To....

well, say goodbye to another month that came and went in the blink of an eye.

everything from the flood dried up and under the house is all good.  no puddles, no smells and nothing hanging on the floors.  GOD IS GOOD.

jade's party was fun.  they went lazer-tagging (i did not go) and the theme to her party was DIRECTOR.  she's mentioned she "might" (key word here) want to be a movie director.  i sure hope not.  i really don't want her anywhere near hollywood.  but i will not tell her that.

her cake was spectacular.  it was made by a professional and cost about what you would pay a professional too.... which means... about the same as a wedding cake.  but...  it was gorgeous AND absolutely delicious.  each layer was different and filled.

layer 1 (top) white cake with vanilla cream & mango;
layer 2 (middle): spice cake with mocha salted caramel (turned out i liked this one the best)
layer 3 (bottom): all dark chocolate with a little bit of crunch in the cream.
lots and lots of fondant.  i found i really REALLY like fondant.  shoot me now!

everything on the cake except for the feathers, the black & gold balls and the gold bling around the base..was edible! i GOT the gold bling.  i'm sure you'll see it on a card... eventually!

yes, yes, yes... i DO have a picture....

now is that spectacular or what????  and is she gorgeous?  12.  i never looked like that at 12!

well, i do NOT do halloween.  no kids, no candy.  jade says she's gonna be "something dead".  she LOVES halloween.  good that her birthday is in october!

thanks so much for stopping by.  have a Spooktacular halloween.


  1. Yes, she is darling........and what a cake! TFS!

  2. 12? No Way! How does this happen? Happens around here too - still trying to catch up with all of it! Glad it was a fun time for all of you.

  3. Oh my yes, another month gone already. And my Jade is really a gorgeous young lady. Wow! What a cake. I sure hope the twins don't expect a cake like that when they turn 12. LOL! This year they got cupcakes. She is growing up fast, Stef. How amazing s that! Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. Wow, what a super cake. Sounds like everyone had a great time.
