Internet Problems!

I have not been responding to posts or telling all of my beautiful followers how amazing they are because my internet/ phone has been down all week! YIPES! You don't even realize how vital technology is until you don't have it anymore!!

I woke up to 2 sales this morning so now I am all jazzed about coming home from work and creating new pieces!! I can't wait to get started! I just found this AWESOME way to make all different colors of ICING for all my tiny cakes!

Get ready for some AWESOME pictures!!! Thank you all for being your amazing, wonderful selves!!!

I Saw This at Walgreens..


I walked into a Walgreens this evening to see red velvet cake sold at the counter. While this was not appealing, it reminded me that I have not posted this picture yet!

More Sweets Anyone?

I went for a walk and...


realized how freaking gorgeous Chicago truly is. Look at these amazing sites I saw today! I can't wait for it to get above 55 degrees here and then I'll smile ALL the time! Take a look at some of these beautiful places I saw...


Here Comes Trouble..





Cakes Cakes Cakes!





More cakes means more smiles! Clearly the sun is NOT at the point I need it to be because all of my pics are a little dim. If you have a chance, check out my Etsy store, I just put a TON of items on sale! WOO HOO! More later...

This one was my favorite...

What can I say... I have a sweet tooth...





In this case, MORE is BETTER








Although is is QUITE chilly here in Chicago, the sun is perfect! I am planning on going on a LONG walk later. I hope to get inspired on my way. A great thing (one of the MANY) about Chicago is all the bakeries and different types of restaurants that are all within walking distance.

On a totally different note I tried to plant some flowers yesterday to no avail. The cold killed them all :( Boooo! I want summer NOWWW!! Pictures of the sadness later...
