My first cake!!

I finally made a cake with my Cricut Cake Mini!! I know the icing looks really bad on it (I used store bought, and got alot of crumbs in it), but I think the rest looks pretty good. I used the idea from the Cake Basics handbook and changed it for a one-tier cake and didn't cover the whole thing in white fondant like they said.

I'm so excited! Since I got my Cricut Cake Mini I decided I needed to learn other decorating techniques, so last night I signed up for the Wilton Decorating Basics class at a local Joann's. The class doesn't start for 2 weeks, so it's going to be a LOOOOONG 2 weeks. I was also unable to make the Cricut Cake online classes they had a few weeks ago, but today I saw they are having another class next week! I'll be making that one for sure!

More Israel Layouts

I got these pages done a while ago, but never got around to posting them. Here is my itinerary for Israel and some memories of the flight to Israel.

Now I'm working on the first day in Israel... Caesarian Arches and Welcoming ceremony on the beach.

Happy birthday to me!

My birthday was last Tuesday, and my mom finally gave me my Cricut Cake Mini that she asked me about back in February. Since work was crazy last week leading into spring break I didn't have a chance to play with it, and I didn't want to make a cake over the weekend since Passover started last night. But I REALLY couldn't bring myself to wait another week to try it out, so I made Passover brownies and decorated them since I don't have any Passover cake recipes that taste good. Here's a picture of the brownies. I used Wilton fondant since it doesn't have corn syrup. I know it isn't much, but it's a start, and I'm sure I'll get much better. I decided I also need to take a Wilton cake decorating class so I know some other techniques and stuff so I can get better.
Let me know what you think!

I know it's a little late...

Here are some Mother's Day and Easter cards I made for Cards for Soldiers. I meant to post them a while ago, but I couldn't get them to upload to my computer for some reason.
