Final Project.

Final Project... Wedding Cake.
Theme.... Winter Wedding
Must haves..... Monogram, Flowers
Limits... must be stacked and on a cake drum

They gave me the instructions and I gave them this....

I recreated my friend's flower necklace in gumpaste. 

This last picture is of my cake on display, ready for graduation tomorrow.  Some of you may be wondering what the "W" stands for as my monogram.  That stands for Westin.  It is the future wedding cake for Michael Westin and myself.  Michael Westin maybe be a fictional character from the T.V. series Burn Notice, but hey a girl can dream.

I can't believe tomorrow is graduation day.  I remember the night before college graduation... packing.  I packed all night and finally fell asleep on my bare mattress.  I woke up to my Mom calling me telling me she was going to be at my place in 15 minutes.  I jumped up and ran past the boxes to my bathroom mirror.  My face had the pattern from the mattress across my cheek, and my mascara had smeared down to coke addict status.  I reached for my face wash... packed.  Urgh!  I checked the shower for some body wash... packed.  Sleep deprived, running late, and desperate my brilliant mind grabbed the dish soap from the kitchen and began scrubbing.  I remember the apple green scent being intoxicating as I thought to myself, "graduation morning is so much better in the movies".   Well now I'm graduating from cupcake school, but this time I'm going to get graduation morning right.  I will shower this time, set an alarm, and even do something extraordinary like... eat breakfast.  I've come a long way since my college years.

I know what you are thinking... graduation?! *heavy breathing* but that means! * hyperventilating* "that your blog will be over!" *code blue* Stay with me, don't go to the light.  This isn't the end yet.  When it is the end, I will let you know.  But I will rip it off fast like a band-aid.  You wont be expecting it.  You can eat a pan of brownies, cry a little, and then move on with your life.

I guess you'll want to add a twitter icon to your blog. Just bookmarked the site, although I had to complete it by hand. Just my suggestion.
