Taking the Heat in the Kitchen

Hello friends

Its been a while since I posted anything. I have been REALLY busy. We've had a lot going on these past couple of weeks.  My second born daughter graduated and then had her graduation ball and we've had a lot of  stuff going on in the  kitchen. So here's what I've been up to...

My nephew had his 8th birthday and my sister asked my daughter and I to do his cupcakes for school (sorry no pics of that since I did them on my own and my daughter had the camera.) Then we did his birthday cake for his actual birthday. My daughter did the decorating by herself.

I'm really proud of her.. though I DO NOT  like Spongebob..gotta give the customer  what  they want ;-)

Before the dust could settle on that,  we had some catering for  the wedding of one of  her co-workers from her weekend job. We had  to bake 150 puff shells and 150 cupcakes..I'm still exhausted! Here's Britt working on the handwritten fondant toppers and the finished product.

I don't have pics of the puffs but I was happy with how they turned out. Now I have to get through kindergarten graduation, shopping for or making teachers' gifts and end of term!

I hope I get to write  something meaningful soon but its all I can do to keep up with my GMG book study. I hope the Spirit moves in a mighty way because I have to post  something tomorrow!

I was reflecting while I was doing all this, and seriously nervous about how it would all turn out, that this experience is very much like life these days. It feels like the heat is being turned up and we are in danger of being scorched. Through it all though, I know that God is with us and we CAN take the heat in the kitchen because His promise is that He will bring us through all the difficulties we have to face, if we have  faith and trust in Him. Faith is exactly what  I have to write on tomorrow. As usual, I'm living what  I learn!  What an awesome God  we serve!

Hope you are all well and I'll catch up with my reading soon..I know some of you have some great stuff posted and I'm so far behind.

Love & Blessings!

You have been busy in the kitchen. So do you both cater different events often? Your daughter seems very talented. I have tried to make my kids' cakes, and well, we'll just say that they were made with love. They taste fine, but the decorating part is not so good :) Now, I just let the siblings do the decorating.
