Here Comes the Cake




I've kind of dropped off the face of the earth. (Too much pressure to be clever mostly makes me silent) However, I am overcoming any blogging qualms and I just wanted to document one of my recent(ish) successes.

Last year I took a few cake decorating classes and had a great time, but with this, that and all the other things, I have been unable to make very many cakes. As such, when asked to make a wedding cake for my cousin, I was a little...unsure.

However, with Sterling's help (along with Janelle, Mom Hurd, Rachel, etc) 9 batches of rice krispie treats, 5(ish) pounds of fondant, who-knows-how-much frosting, a single cake, and a few late nights...wha-lah-pretty wedding cake!





PS If anyone asks, I guess I'm open for "business"

Thanks, Clark, for taking the pictures for me.

Love in the Cleanroom

This is my favorite music video. What's better than finding love in a cleanroom?



I get to work in a cleanroom...kind of like this one. I think work might be more interesting if The Postal Service was playing the soundtrack.

I love the mechanical movements along with the music. AWESOME!
