There is more to life then Cake.

But wouldn't life suck without it? Not literally of course (could you imagine *giggle..) but you can't say that cake doesn't just liven everything up! Whats a birthday without cake? What a wedding without cake? Whats a podiatrist visit without cake?! Just another day, that's what it is! So in the words of Marie Antoinette "LET THEM EAT CAKE!"

And they shall! Just not yet I have to fulfill the blogs title statement:

Yes there is more to life then cake, contrary to myself above. What is it you may ask? (For those of you saying Pie your punishment is to go buy me one and bring it here so I can have pie and you can't! Pie? I ask you...)

Any who sport fans, what I'm actually talking about is lately Grant and I have been squishing our money into the house. All of it in fact, but we're pretty pleased with the results so we're OK with eating rice for weeks on end (I'm kidding. We like rice, really!)

What we've got now instead of a very scary room that we still affectionately call the dungeon, is my craft room!!! And where once was an insignificant L'd off space in the main room is a cute little bedroom for working out in and/or hiding.. er storing things.

And I even have pictures to prove it; and their numbered, Aren't you special? (that's not a rhetorical question btw) :

1-Dresser I had growing up-also an on going project
2- Yes I really do keep my money in a piggy bank. Which I made btw

Hey Doc! I've written relatively short blogs lately so you just buck-up there, its almost over.

I haven't talked about CAKE yet remember?

So I was inspired to create this next work of cake by Bakerella.blogspot.com It didn't turn out nearly as cute as hers did, and I have only myself to blame, I skimped on the fondant, and I can't dip a chocolate to save my life :( however I persisted and was rewarded with a fairly decent finish.

I can teach you how to dip chocolate, for real not like the pretzels we dipped that one time, when you teach me about cakes. Cute rooms!!

The Gramber Bies said...

OH YES PLEASE! I want to learn for reals, in fact I actually thought about asking you because I hadn't a clue how to learn, then I was like.. wait a sec Jenn used to work at a chocolate yummy place! I totally will teach you if you teach me.. actually I was going to anyway but to get a trade off to boot! WOO!!

The Gramber Bies said...

As one of the recipients of the valentine cake, I can say that it looked even better in person. And it tasted fantastic! (Especially the little cake truffles on top...)


The Gramber Bies said...

Awe thanks Uncle Jeffy! Aren't those truffles awesome?! I'm making more for sure

Aaron Allen said...

Wow, you've been busy little Bies, haven't you? Looks awesome! Can't wait to see it in person.

Amber, you are so talented! I thought it was great. And the rooms are awesome, I would love one of those, for my crafts. Cute blog by the way. I was on Mandy's and saw it. I am putting it on mine so I can see it and keep up on what you are all up to.
