My brother's bride asked me to do their wedding cake. I accepted graciously...but was TERRIFIED! I like to surprise people with cakes, I do not like to make them to order. If it is a surprise and it doesn't turn out I can throw it in the garbage and no one has to know about it. If someone wants me to make them a cake, and it has to be delivered at a certain time it is no longer a stress reliever! It is a major stressor!!! I am really glad that I did it though. It was a great learning experience and in the end I was happy with it and there were no problems getting it delivered. The last picture is the happy couple with all the nieces and nephews.
Jacob was so sweet to tell his teacher that I make great cakes, and that I would love to make a cake for the 2nd grade patriotic program! I even had a couple days to pull it together after I found out about his generous offer;) The look on his face and the attention he got from all his friend's and all the teacher's was well worth the work! He was so proud and grateful. I love this kid so much!
I am a stay at home Mom with lots of kids. I wrote a blog post about my life that went viral in January of 2014. If you're new here read that post first. It's called "My Name is Julie". Our family is blended. I have 4 sons with my late husband Jake. I married Curtis in 2006. He had 4 sons as well. We had our first child together, Cameron in 2008 making 9 boys. In July of 2011 I finally got a girl, making 10 kids in all. I enjoy speaking on my experiences and sharing my story. My husband has currently started a new business called qpquo. It is an online social commerse site that works with the facebook yardsale groups. It has been a fun adventure and scary too! We have a busy crazy life and love it! www.qpquo.com To read my viral post go to http://breakingthesilence-cam.blogspot.com/2012/11/my-name-is-julie.html
Jacob is 5 and he is my biggest helper. He helps me decide what kind of cake to use. He helps bake and decorate all the cakes. He is also the best dishwasher I have found. He sits at the sink and washes all the bowls, utinsels and pans that get dirty. He does a very good job. I love working with him. *Update-Jacob is 9 now...and still my biggest help in the kitchen!
Here is a quick pic of all my cakes, the top is the most recent cake done.
