Ashley's 2nd Birthday Cake

Haven’t got the time to write a proper blog post, so just a couple of photographs for now until we get back from our trip.

              Gumpaste roses

Going through my email inbox for the first time in 6 months, I’m awfully embarrassed to confess that I found at least 5 email enquiries related to my blog posts that I’d somehow missed replying, the oldest one dating back to Oct last year. I’m obviously not one of those super career women who can juggle marriage, motherhood, having a full-time job, running a household and having a side hobby without dropping one of them.

Besides my tardiness in replying emails and a less than pristine looking flat, poor H has been terribly neglected these past months. His frequent work-related trips that take him away from our little imp and me haven’t helped the situation. H and I are desperately in need of some quality alone-time with each other, which is why we’re both looking forward to our 1st R&R trip without our mini-me #1 and before mini-me #2 arrives in a few months time. The timing couldn’t be more perfect as the end of this month marks our 10th wedding anniversary.

Gumpaste roses

I’m planning a 3-tiered cake to celebrate the occasion and have some vague idea about the design; it’ll include the gumpaste roses that I’ve made over several evenings this past week and H prefers an all-white covering for the cake.

The only thing is, I’m not sure if I’ll have enough time to actually make the cake when we get back from our trip, given that I’ll have to hop right back into work mode the following day.

There’s also A’s 2nd birthday cake to bake and decorate before we leave. Right now, I’m thinking of a blackforest Mickey Mouse cake. With just 4 days to go before the planned birthday party and all of them being work days, I’m beginning to feel the stress of it all!
