I Love My Husband!!!

Yesterday morning Dusty came home from work with these pretty flowers.
He knew my day was terrible on Saturday and just wanted me to be happy...
What a guy!

My Day

This morning at 5 am I woke up to finish a cake for this afternoon and here's what I found-

So I make a new one and start covering the other layers with fondant.
And then here's what happened-
My fondant cracks and starts to slip off the cake. (I know the bottom looks crazy but I already knew it wasn't going to work cuz it started cracking right after i put it on the cake. That's why I didn't even try to make the bottom smooth.)
Anyways, I decide to cut the cake price in half and ditch the fondant all together. I frost and decorate it and here's how it turned out-

Pretty cute!
Then all hell breaks loose-
A little chunk falls off... (the party starts in 10 minutes by the way)
Then a bigger chunk falls off... (no one bumped it or touched it at all!)

Then more big chunks fall off
And this is what it looks like by the end of the day.
I gave then the top tier that was all still one piece and bought them a costco cake and cried myself home. I guess it's true what they say... Shit Happens.

For your viewing pleasure, here are Carma and I in Oregon at the worlds largest sea cave. It was filled with hundreds of sea lions and it was pretty cool to see.

We're not sitting with real sea lions, just in case you were confused.
