Cake. Again. Who hates reading my blog????

I know...lame, I'm posting another cake. But I think my cake posts are here to stay. I love cake decorating. I'm seriously a bit surprised by this, but it's become something I truly enjoy.

My cute sister Tristin called me the other day to ask for help with decorating a wedding cake for a mock wedding in her teen life class. Of course I was happy to say yes, but in the back of my mind I was kinda thinking..."What the heck are schools doing these days having mock weddings?" I'm still kind of thinking that, but maybe I'm just getting old... Apparently in this class they had sign ups for the "postions" of this wedding. It sounded like a lot of people didn't sign up for any of it so the teacher randomly assigned people to spots. Tristin was fortunate enough to get cake maker rather than "bride". :)

I was mean and made her help me. She made most of the flowers for the cake and it was a really fun afernoon. When Tristin was little she used to really like me (at least I like to pretend that...). I think it was probably only because I carried her almost the entire time we were at Mt. Rushmore when she was little. Or maybe it was because I would stay up late with her every night so she could play baby. Luckily she doesn't seem to remember the time I hit her head in the ceiling fan... In any case, I don't get to spend a lot of time with her now that she is grown up and "cool", so I really enjoyed our afternoon together.
