We are scheduled to have our fifth child this morning via C-Section!  Five kids.  Who would have thought?

We are nervous and excited for this newest addition to finally make his/her way into our lives!

Gender Reveal Rose Cake

For this pregnancy we chose to not find out the sex of the baby, and its been really fun!!  Thank you to all those who commented and encouraged us to stick with it and not give in… I am so glad we did!

I am hoping for another boy…

    I stumbled upon you blog while looking for a cake with roses on it to make for my daughter who is number 3 out of five children and just turned 4. When I saw you just had your fifth baby I was amazed you are able to create such beautiful cakes etc. I was defeated by the rose cake but am determined at some point to make one as lovely as yours. So…. From another mom of five (and who knows maybe more than five someday). Congrats and enjoy your newborn!

    Now wait a minute. I open an email which I received 3 HOURS AGO, not 3 months or 13 months and the second article showed a half pink half blue cake whoch I begin reading about this coming baby today. Then it goes into a drawing and all of a sudden its talking about the contest from May 27 to June 3 or close to those date and Im getting very comfused at this point. Next, there is a new baby. WHY would you send out this old posting on a new email? It makes on sense.
