I've been quiet for a while because I have been super busy. I'm on the Enrichment Board and we have been preparing for our big quarterly activity. We had an amazing "Night at the Emmas" complete with a red carpet, paparazzi, nice dinner, and an recognition ceremony. On top of creating some of the computer awards and best dressed ballots, I made the birthday cake. It turned out pretty good, but I can tell I'm out of practice. The top layer was my favorite chocolate recipe and the bottom was my favorite almond white cake. I used gum paste for the first time to make the leaves and I even tried tulips (the ones on top are real).
We also got to get dressed up for the occasion! So here I am ready to walk the red carpet. Nathan bought this dress for me about three years ago, and this is the first opportunity that I've had to wear it. The bead work is beautiful, and I finally found a jacket that looks like it came with the dress. So now it is modest and wearable!
