  8. Wow! We recently moved, had my hubby and childs birthday, got pregnant, and a few other things… I took a break from baking and reading my blogs regularly… so I haven’t checked in on your blog lately, I have missed seeing your awesome work.. i am inspired to bake again, and sad I missed all of the Easter stuff, that is super cute! I did try to make the sugar cookies and your royal icing recipe you shared… but for the like of me I cant get that…I must not have the patience. I have made my own fondant for a few baby shower cakes though (the same marshmellow recipe you referenced), it was so easy and pretty! My only complaint is that I wanted to peel it off of my cake to eat.. not that it was yucky, just not as good as the frosting…. any tips for that, or is that normal? I can’t wait to try the yummy looking chocolate cake!!! Glad to see you are still doing so well and thanks for the laugh about your babys nose 🙂
