It's been a few weeks since my last post and so much has happened I'm not even sure where to start. I'll just give you a brief recap of some of the main events:
- I joined the board of our city's Arts Council and helped with a benefit for them. I'm excited to get more involved with the arts in our community and to work to support the programs the Arts Council provides but I'm also feeling totally uninformed and unqualified to be on the board. Oh well - guess I'll just have to wing it for a while.
- I made cupcakes and a little cake for a friend's wedding. 12 dozen. I've only done 1 other wedding so I was super nervous and stressed but with my mom's help everything turned out fine. I even managed to deliver them to the hotel, about 40 miles away, with out ruining any of them. The bride was happy! Phew! (unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to get any good photos)
- We took our daughter to college in Boston. The logistics, the emotions... It was kind of tough. But she's there now and I think she chose the right school. She's going to have so many great experiences. I'm really excited for her. But, she won't be able to come home until Christmas and I'm going to miss her.
I've had a thing for chevron patterns lately and after seeing some chevron cake designs on Pinterest, I've been dying to try some chevron cupcakes or cookies. So, that's what I did with some of the extra cupcakes and fondant that I had from the wedding. The first attempts don't look that great and by the time I'd gotten the technique figured out, I ran out of fondant and cupcakes but it was a fun little project anyway.
