This video is of Lawson laughing at Adam getting onto Duke and Rerun. I don't know why he thought this was so funny! Such a sweet boy.

Fondant Cake

If you don't already know, I have a passion for baking, especially cakes! During high school I would bake cakes and sell them, but after going to college I never seemed to find the time to do it. Lately I have been back in my baking routine and have realized that I absolutely LOVE it! I believe everyone has a certain talent or gift that brings them joy when they do it, and I have come to the conclusion that baking is mine. This was my first time to work with fondant, and after all the stories I have heard of how difficult it is to work with, I actually did not think I would enjoy it. However, I completely loved every minute of it. After getting Lawson to bed, I began working on it and could not seem to stop. I was so in to it that I did not even stop to eat dinner! As the cake started coming together I became so excited and could not quit smiling. I was enjoying every second assembling the bow and cutting the stars. I kept getting Adam to take pictures of me with the cake and we were not allowed to cut it until today because I just wanted to admire its beauty! So, after making this cake I have decided I want to do this the rest of my life. I forgot how much joy baking brings me and the other night I found it! It's so funny how some of the simplest things in life bring you so much happiness. No matter how busy you are, always make time for the things you love... even if it is just baking cakes! What do you enjoy doing? What brings you happiness? Let me know!
