It's A Peach of Cake

A lot of you wanted to see some other cakes that I have made in the past so I have started a blog that has them on it. Be patient I still haven't posted every single cake. My mom has some other pictures at her house that I need to get a hold of. Enjoy the ones that I have posted. I know some have already been shown on this blog, but you'll be okay. The blog name is a bit cheesy, but I couldn't come up with anything. For those of you wondering why I went with the name, it is because my nickname is Peaches so I guess it kind of goes. You can find the link under my favorite things on the side bar.

Congratulations David!!!

So many of you probably know that I Love American Idol. If you don't then now you do. I am pleased and happy to announce that my idol crush took it all (nothing to worry about, he is my crush because he makes me get all giddy over JBody). Anyway I thought the finale was amazing. Both Davids did awesome, but in the end Cook was the better canidate, he can perform, sing, is original, ect. ect. ect...

Congratulations Cook, I can't wait till the CD comes out.

American Fighter

Many of you know that JBody is a big MMA fan. This has flowed over to the rest of us I guess. The boys love night. Mostly because alot of people come over and we let them eat alot of candy. When he first introduced me to the sport I was not a fan. I didn't like watching a bunch of grown men beating eachother to a bloody pulp. There were brutal knock outs and it just wasn't my thing. That was about 6 years ago and we were watching fights that had aired even more years before that. The sport has changed alot since then. There are more rules and JBody has explained it to me more so I have a better understanding. There is still blood and knock outs but the refs stop the fights before someone gets hurt too bad. I actually will sit and watch it now when we have fight nights. To some of you it may seem wrong to let our children watch the fights and in a way I understand where you are coming from. However, I think that many of you if you had a basic understanding wouldn't think of it like that. Yes, I would never want my children to become fighters, but I would allow them to train. There is a lot of skill and strategy with the sport. JBody and others describe it as a kinesthetic chess match. For JBody's birthday last year I bought him this brown and pink American Fighter t-shirt. So here he is on the day of fight night with Razy ready for the fights as well in her pink and brown.

DOBLE DOS VUELTAS {Doble turns two}

Happy Birthday Doble!

Favorite Food: Pizza
Favorite T.V. show: Thomas and Friends
Favorite Movie: Thomas and the Magic Railroad

The Twelth was Doble's 2nd Birthday. We celebrated like we did last year by starting the day off with the annual irrigation parade (pictures to be posted later). Family and friends came to celebrate and eat lots of yummy pizza. It shouldn't be any surprise to many of you that the theme for the party was Thomas the Train. Here are some pics of the party and pre cake making.

The first picture is of his birthday invite it is a Train Ticket. Of course the real ones had his real name on them, but this gives you an idea of what it looked like.

The Cake Process: I began making the cake on Tuesday. I started with the face made out of fondant. Let me tell you it is harder than you would think. I was thinking it would be a "piece of cake" and yet it still took me about an hour and a half to make it and it still didn't come out as well as I was hoping. Doble say it right after I was done and got made because I wouldn't give him the "Thomas Cookie". He actually looks a little more like Percy than Thomas I think.

What the heck is that mess. This was a long process and by the time I got to put my crumb frosting layer on it, it had already thawed so it just started to crumble all over the place. I just about gave up.

Good thing I didn't because it actually didn't turn out too bad. Still not what I was hoping for. But he enjoyed it. The squiggles under the happy birthday are on purpose. I wanted to keep his name hidden from the blog.

Can you tell that he just woke up from a nap and he got a little sun from the parade?

All that hard work is gone. I hate cutting into the cake. It takes so long to make and only a few minutes to be destroyed. Lil' E thought Doble was taking too long. He started to feed him because I told him that Doble couldn't open his presents till he was done with his cake. Doble could have cared less. It was Lil' E who wanted to open presents so bad.

Well another year has gone by and our kids are only getting bigger. Lil' E will be celebrating his birthday next month so I better get off the computer and start his cake now. Just kidding.
