This is a piece of cake.

Or, actually, a whole cake.

When: My friend's birthday 2 years ago.
What: A pink and Zebra print cake

Why? Sometimes I ask myself the same question

The answer? Because this is what I love to do, that's why!

This is just to show that I can make cakes too.

March Madness... Cake Pop Style.

As April looms nearer, I find that it is necessary to look back on March with a sense of relief.

This month I had three orders, an order of 12 , and order of 19, and an  order of 48.
That makes 79 total.

 They went smoothly with only one all nighter to pull it off.. (I think I keep my local corner store in business with all the Red Bull I buy).. And Viola! Pops.

Unfortunately, a certain popular shipping company with a three letter name that drives brown trucks, "lost" my shipment of the 4 dozen pops, (I hope you guys are enjoying them over at the shipping store!)
So I made another batch.. This time shipping them through another popular shipping comapny whose colors are purple and orange.

They should arrive tomorrow.. Here they are:

I hope you're enjoyed the rantings of a twenty-something housewife:)

Sick Puppies and Vet Bills.

Oh my goodness! I am so sorry I've disappeared off the face of the planet!

My little dog Lilly has not been feeling well at all and she's been in and out of emergency clinics and vet's offices. Now we are just keeping an eye on her and trying to get her to eat the prescribed food.
Hubby and I got about 6 hours of sleep last night and this morning, and we are nowhere near over the hump.

Here is Lilly's progression today:

This was Lilly right after we got home from the hospital.  Poor baby was so very tired!

As of right now, she is bouncing back slightly, but still not 100% Lilly-fied yet.

She's just too cute in this picture!!

To my fans, friends, and followers.

I just want to take a minute to say thank you to everyone that has made this possible for me.
I have always had a passion for baking, and for watching my mom create things out of cake and icing. It fascinated me as a kid, and now I am an adult. I just recently started trying to take this more seriously. My husband has been my support structure through all the good and bad that has come our way, and he has never stopped believing in me. His older sister, my wonderful sister in law, has been relentless about getting my name out there to her friends in Tennessee, and has been 100% behind me the whole way. My best friend who is more like a sister to me has been my biggest fan, my taste tester, and my swift kick in the butt sometimes to not give up. I love y'all and couldn't do this without you.

Thanks y'all!!

Join The Revolution.

I was on Facebook today, just doing my normal daily check, and I spotted a video that a friend had posted. Now, I generally just skip over these videos, but this one caught my eye.

It was called KONY 2012.

It was also 29 minutes long.

It was the best 29 minutes I have ever spent.

Please watch the video by clicking on the link.


Join the Revolution.

Make Joseph Kony famous.

Thank you

Love, Saira
