Let's get caught up

Only one more catch up post, I promise.  You may notice I am including more than just sweets now.  Well, my life has been a bit more balanced the latter half of this year.  Sweets, while wonderful in many respects, began to rule all things and all time in my life.  It was time to slow down and step back from things a bit, business wise.  The kids who were so supportive and patient with their sleep deprived, overworked, sugar crusted and well, cranky mom- deserved more.  When I told them I was pulling back on work, they all high fived each other and gave me huge hugs. Some people say there are "signs" in life that show us where to go and what is important.  Well, this was a huge sign that slapped me right in the face. Family has always been first for me and always will be.  However, I reserve the right to continue to create (and eat) sweets with the hope of maybe someday, entering back into the business side of it all.
I have no idea why I feel the need to put disclaimers or explain everything I do. 
Middle child thing maybe.
My birthday, blah blah blah. Highlight, no cake to make for myself! Izzy's ice cream did the trick. Ignore the size of my cone please.  My hubbie said it would make me sick to eat it all. Sad fact, he really doesn't know me after all these years.

Cute as a button cake. Even cuter cupcake pops went with it, too bad I didn't get a picture of those, huh?

My oldest started high school. Walked to the bus (for the first time) and off she went.  Every day I beg her to stop.  I don't want her to go to high school because then I will blink and she will be leaving for college.  Blink again and she will be moving away with her husband even further from me.  Nope not having it.
Yet she gets up every morning and off she goes. I really need to get a grip huh?

I had a request for a coconut cake from Magnolia bakery from a customer.  She and the recipient travel to NYC and always stop at Magnolia Bakery.  To surprise her friend, we decided to claim she made it.  The friend/recipient of the cake called me within a day to tell me she knew it was me :)

Boiling sugar to make candy.  I'm so strange, but I think this is sooo pretty.  No need to comment on that.  Those of us with a sugar addiction are very aware of our problem. Thank you.
Okay, that should do it.  Now on to a post about a super exciting day for me.  I met one of my blog idols! Bakerella!
I hope you all (again the three of you that may read this) are well and have either had or shared something sweet in your life.  All my best, mps
