Christmas to me from me

Sunday, December 22nd, 2013

Don’t tell me you have never bought something for yourself at Christmas. Well, this Christmas, I bought me a new toy. The only problem, it seems to be stuck somewhere between California and here, High Point NC. There happened to be a promotion going on after Black Friday until Dec 8. I jumped on the band wagon and ordered a Silhouette Portrait. For those who do not know about this machine, it allows you to do precise cutting like the Circuit machine. Only, with the Portrait, you don’t need to buy cartridges. You hook the machine up to your computer via USB port. Alas, it looks like it will be after Christmas before I can play.

Christmas Cakes Here are three of my Christmas cakes. They are made out of polymer clay. I really enjoy making cakes with bows. With the Holidays approaching, there seems to be little time for making anything! Maybe soon. Maybe after the New Year!

2 tier halloween cakeRecently I have made several miniature cakes. Again, not real but made from polymer clay. It started with a few ideas I gleamed from pictures of some real cakes. Pretty soon, I was off and running, well actually sitting, making different kinds of cakes. I made Halloween, fall, and Christmas cakes. It can be over whelming. After the Holidays, I’ll get back to making more food items, including cakes.
