This week has tested my cake limits like never before. It started off with one big cake...the zombie (which, btw, I updated my last post with a better picture.) After that, I was talking to a good friend of mine who wanted a Twilight themed cake and matching cookie favors for her daughter's birthday. "Sure, no problem!" I said. Then I found out when she wanted it...the same day as the zombie. My first reaction was, "OH CRAP!" But I went with it, knowing I'd figure it out. And then another acquaintance asked me to make a small cake and sugar cookies for her daughter's class. "Of course!" I said. And of course the due date...the day after the two others. And then a few weeks ago while visiting my parents (3 1/2 hrs away) my sister in law asked me if I would want to make a cake for my niece's birthday. This time my first question was, "When do you need it by?!!!" Yep, you guessed it...the same day as the zombie and Twilight cake. Oh man! How could I say no to my niece??? So it has been one crazy, crazy week...and it's not over....my niece's cake I have to drive 1 1/2 hrs to meet up with them this morning, and then drive back to hopefully carry Mr. Zombie in one piece across the street to my neighbor's birthday party. Shew! One thing I can say for myself, I rock at time management!!!!!!
