Over the past month, my participation hasn't been what it once was here. I am trying to balance an additional responsiblity, and it is proving to push my limits as far as faith and getting it all together. After much prayer, I accepted a volunteer position as a Children's Leader with Bible Study Fellowship International. What this means is that I have to get my weekly lesson done, as well as, prepare a lesson for my kiddos. It is a huge responsibility, but I have been blessed greatly through it already. Once I get it all figured out, I'll be back me. Also, this week I had a cake to decorate. For those that don't know, I used to have a small home decorating business. Now, I do cakes when I want -- mainly for friends.
I made the chocolate cake at the end of December for my FIL's birthday. It is a rich dark chocolate cake, chocolate truffle mix for the icing, dark chocolate band, chocolate/cocoa powder truffles, and candied orange and lemon peels. So very rich. One little piece (or bite) will do you! It took about 20 bars of chocolate to make this.
This is a cake I made for a three-year-old's birthday. She is adopted from China. The napkin in the picture is what the Mom gave me to work from for this cake.
