One week I made two 16th birthday party cakes! Personally the girlie pink one is my favorite, but the spongebob one was the easiest!
Yesterday I was thinking about the goodness of God in my life and how he took care of getting me a job, BEFORE I even knew I needed a job.

So back in May for my daughters birthday, I decided to make a cake using fondant. I had never worked with fondant and so this was just a trial and I thought maybe I could figure it out. Well she was delighted with it and tickled pink to say the least. Of course I saw the imperfections and wanted to see if I could improve it. So friends that don't normally get cakes from me were getting birthday cakes 'cause I needed to practice. Here I am a half year later and I am making cakes for people I don't even know.

My very first fondant cake.

Had you told me that someday I would be a cake decorator - I would have laughed at you. To be honest I still don't know how to make an icing rose, but fondant is like play dough and the possibilites are as far as your imagination will take you.

Getting back to the goodness of God. We are going on a mission trip to Panama in Feb. and need to raise the funds to go and God is using cakes to raise money for our trip!! I'm just blown away at his greatness and how he takes care of his children. He knows me inside and out and knows that I always liked to bake and now I'm baking to raise money for a mission trip!!

But just yesterday I thought about the cake that I needed to make today and that it was the last one that I had an order for and that maybe my gig was up. Within minutes of thinking that a lady called and ask me to make a cake for her daughters birthday. And then as I am making the cake today, I get an email with another order for a cake. That is God taking care of His daughter. And I know that only with Him can I manage to get it all done and I know He will provide.

I am overwheled by God's provision - not only in giving me cake orders, but also in gifting me with this talent.

Wow - talk about giving you more than you could ask or think!! He is faithful!!
