Cake and goodies

My knitters tea swap package arrived yesterday and I actually contained myself long enough to get it home still sealed before opening it. My Spoiler was Amy from iheartknitting. I got some yummy walkers shortbread cookies, I don't know how Amy new, I think she might be psychic but Walker's is a favourite in our family and they are MINE ALLL MINE!!!!!! MUHAHAHAH! I haven't introduced Moose to the walker goodies yet and I think I might keep him in the dark for a while longer while I eat my biscuits :)
I also got TREKKING!!!!!!! That was what blurted out of my mouth when I opened it. AWWWW me thinks Amy did some good snooping on my blog and found out I've been wanting some :))
There were also some yummy smelling soaps, a tea ball *which I don't have but wanted one*, comforting tea made with Licorice root and peppermint yummmmmm and A SOCK BAG!!!!!!!!!!! A fantastic bright stripey sock bag that I absolutely Lovvvvvvvvvve!
Thank you soooo much Amy, I love everything and can't wait to have a big cup of tea and some walker biscuits by the fire :)

Also if you remember last week I told you all I had started the wilton cake decorating class at work. Well tuesday night was the first decorating night. We had to have a cake already iced, and extra icing coloured and ready for our cakes as well as icing for practicing with.

Well I kinda didn't have time to make the cake and icing until I got home from work on monday night @ 10 , the class was the next day and I worked at 9 until the class started. Can you smell disaster????

Well I was up until 2 in the morning making that dang icing! i ran out of icing sugar and had to run to the Irving at 1 in the morning. I needed two bags and they only had one so i had to do some more running around to find another store that was open this late. Finally I found one and they had just ONE bag left. SAVED!!! So off I go home to make the rest of my icing and get some sleep. I get home and start making the icing and what do I find??? Only TWO bags of icing Moose had picked up for me that day. DANG IT!!! I thought I had already used it! Anyway apart from little sleep I did get to the class and had a great time. I think I am really going to like this cake decorating. Here is my first creation!


I think i did pretty darn good for my first time. The rainbow itself was a little on the crooked side but other than that I'm pleased. Next weeks cake is one with flowers, and while I don't like flowers myself I'm excited to learn how to make them with icing!

Roll on Class two!

your cake is so cute!

thanks for the comment on my blog! i got the family circle book from the library, but it's a hardcover book that i've seen at bookstores (and on amazon). there are some other cute patterns in the book, though the only other thing i've knit from it is hedgehogs.

Of course we can be sisters. My 23 birthday is next week, so we could almost be twin Kelly's (One Kelli, one Kelly). Hee hee, wouldn't that drive a mother insane?
