    What I've been up to

    Besides helping out my friend who has breast cancer, I've completed a quilt I made the top in the Netherlands and finally finished it up today. Joe is taking it with him back east. He'll give it to the recipients while he's visiting. I also spent some time making a birthday cake for my friend's 85 year-old dad who just had a birthday. Spice cake with cream cheese buttercream frosting. My decorating skills need some major work but I had fun making it. I had a terrible time with icing consistency but I fumbled my way through the process anyway. From what I understand, it was well received. I told my friend that all I wanted was to be given a piece of cake after the party so I could see how it turned out. hahaha

    Your quilt is gorgeous. And your decorating skills are awesome. That cake sure looks too good to mess up by cutting.

                You have been up to a lot! Beautiful quilt and luscious cake. I absolutely do not have the patience to decorate a cake in that way. My hat is off to you!

                            Thanks. You guys are too kind. By the way, Mischiefkat, I DID indeed have some of the cake. My friend was good enough to save some for Joe and for me. I'm really thrilled to have found a really good spice cake recipe to add to my collection.

                              Am glad you and your DH had a piece of your cake. Like another poster said almost looked too good to cut. Kathy
