noah's ark

Is it normal to have motherly feelings toward a cake you just made? As a friend was leaving with the Noah's ark cake I made for her daughter's first birthday I felt like a mum parting with her child for the first time (not that I have any idea what that feels like, but I think I just caught a glimpse!)

"Did you pack your socks?"




"Don't forget to change your underwear, and if anyone bullies you, call me!"



"...I love you!"

Since my sugarpie (emphasis on sugar) walked out the door, I've had my phone right next to me waiting for it to ring. I feel like an empty-nester.


Something tells me this is not normal. Somebody help!

That turned out really well. It looks really cute as a 2D cake.

I've had the same feeling watching a cake go out my front door. The last one I made for someone else though, I had more of a feeling of relief to have it out of my hair.

Sending your "baby" out into the world is probably easier than watching it rot in the refrigerator.

You have an amazing talent. Keep up the good work!
