My Other Hobby:)

Hey All!  I'm sure many of you have other hobbies in addition to nail polish:)  I think painting your nails is a form of art, so most of us probably enjoy other artsy stuff.  My other hobby is decorating cakes.  I started in 2009 by taking a cake decorating class at my local Michaels Craft Store.  Since then, I have decorated lots of cakes for my friends and family.  I am making a cake this Friday for my daughter April, who is turning 7.  The cake above is from her last birthday.  I also LOVE owls so I talked her into letting me make her an owl cake:)  I know this is a nail polish blog, but if you are interested in seeing more of my cakes, I would be happy to share.  Just let me know!  Also, if you have questions about cake decorating, feel free to ask.  I love sharing ideas, etc.!

  3. Wow, you're amazing! I've tried making my cakes look pretty, but I settle for just tasting good. ;) Do you ever use fondant?

    1. I normally just use fondant for decorations - I don't usually cover the cake with it because it doesn't taste the best. The kids eat all of the decorations though and say it tastes like marshmallows. I buy my fondant online and it tastes a little better... Thanks for the compliment:)

  4. I love owls and this cake is FABULOUS!!! Super adorable!!! I love to cook and bake as well but have never messed with fondant. It's a great release for me and something I like to do other than painting my nails that's a nice stress-reliever

    1. Thank you! Fondant is pretty fun to work with - it's like Play Doh :) You should try it sometime. I buy yummy stuff called Satin Ice at Global Sugar Art .com It tastes way better than the fondant you buy in the store.
