did you miss me?

My sincerest apologies for being a neglectful blogger. I hate to come across as a downer, but I haven't felt much like sharing lately. It's hard to journal about your life when you feel terrible inside and, most days, hopeless.

My birthday was this past Saturday (July 3rd). My sweet husband surprised me with the new Cricut Cake machine. I LOVE it.
Yesterday Nick asked me why I wasn't playing with it. I told him I had no reason to decorate anything. No less than one minute later, my kindred friend Tori called me asking if I could make a last minute cake.

Tonight I made the cake she requested... a wiener dog birthday cake for her business partner. It is a dark chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache glaze. It's not perfect, but I am happy with it considering the time constraint. I hope the birthday girl enjoys it!


  1. Wow that cake is amazing!! I have been wanting a Cricut Cake machine too. Is it easy to use and clean?

  2. Funny, it was my birthday last weekend (well, the first) and my name is Chantal, too! And I would have loved a dog shaped cake!

  3. that's amazing, seriously. i wish i lived close by so you could teach me some of your tricks!
