Grooms cake for my best friend, Becky, and her husband, Paul.

So you may be wondering why I'm showing you a picture of cake,huh. Well, as I was browsing through my pictures, I came across this and a few other pictures of cakes I have made and decorated in the past and was just thinking how thankful I am that I learned the skill of cake decorating. Now, I'm no Martha Stewart, but I do okay. My mother-in-law, Marlene, taught me some cake decorating skills when Will and I were first married. Thanks Marlene! I had iced cakes before, but never really knew how to do borders and other little tricks of the trade. Over the years I have learned a little more here and there. I don't sell cakes or anything like that. It's just fun to decorate a cake ,most of the time, except when you have little hands that want to get in the way. It has saved us a lot of money as well. I usually make all of the kids' birthday cakes so I don't have to run out and buy one. I'm really glad that I have been able to use this talent for other people as well. I think it's important for us to learn new skills and things that we will enjoy. In my opinion, that makes us happier and better equipped to serve others. I am thankful for this simple thing in my life, as well as the big thing that usually benefits from it. My family.

It's so easy. I should have been doing daisies a long time ago.
