april showers bring… well, may showers!

how are you all liking this crazy weather?  it seems like it has been winter since last october!  i’m not complaining – we need the rain, and i’ll take snuggling up in a blanket over sweating in my kitchen any old day!

so wow – how quickly a month passes by when you have cakes to make!  it seemed like everyone was celebrating – and that’s exactly how i like it!!  i didn’t want a whole month to go by without posting something on the blog, so here are some pictures of cakes and desserts that i made this month!  thanks to those of you who have been patient and have kept up with the blog!  exciting things are in store, and i’m hoping to share it with you all very, very soon!!  until then, eat some cake!
