Make a Tiered Cake

This was my first tiered cake that I have ever made, and I'll have to say that it was just as hard to get right as I thought it would be. It turned out great, though, and the birthday girl loved it. I made the Dora and Boots faces out of gumpaste, and I was really happy with them. I will have to try stacking cakes again!

See An Exhibit At IMA

This Friday, Hannah & I made a rainy day visit to the Indianapolis Museum of Art. I can't believe that I had this museum within walking distance of my house and I had never been. We saw a special exhibit on florals in fashion, and it was great!
We then viewed the regular collection, which contained some wonderful pieces as well.

Visit a Zoo

Last Sunday, my lovely sister-in-law-to-be had a request. Let's go to the zoo! I was happy to oblige, and we dragged the guys along with us.

The requirement for the day that I had was that everyone choose their favorite animal and get a picture with it.
For me it was the flamingos:
Phillip was a big fan of this grizzly bear that was playing in the water:
Hannah was in love with this baby elephant:
AJ chose the giraffes:
