Home Sweet Home

Returned home late last night after a really fun weekend away. Ate far too much and walked until my shins hurt and loved every minute of it. My mother-in-law had a terrific time and managed to keep up with the 3 of us 'young girls' as long as there was a coffee stop every now and then. Sadly, no photos to share of my weekend - my camera is back at Canon for repairs for the 3rd time this year and so I'm looking forward to getting some photos from my 2 sister-in-laws in the coming week.



I wanted to share the only 2 photos I have of the little birthday cake balls that were made to celebrate my Mother-in-laws birthday. Made from delicious carrot cake and white ganache and then rolled in fondant and decorated or yummy cherry ripe cake with milk chocolate ganache and fondant. There was a co-ordinating birthday cake but no pics here - sorry. Aren't these the cutest little things? I was inspired by a talented cake artist who kindly explains on her blog how to make them - go check out the Cake Journal site - it's quite fantastic. In case you're all thinking that I'm super talented ... no I didn't make these.

As for a certain 'handsome someone' making a blog entry while I was away, I'd have to assume that he was kept pretty busy - I'm told the boys were angelic though - I'm so glad. I guess when I least expect it ... maybe an unexpected visit.

Off to create a layout tonight - maybe even start a second one too hopefully :)

Oh yum - they sound delicious!
Your weekend away sounded lovely, glad the boys all survived :)

Canon...argh, not again! I may run into you out the front of the building. (I think they're due a phone call from me, I'm starting to get antsy)
