Red Velvet

Here is a photo Mom passed along to me this past week, she thought you readers might get a kick out of seeing me decorate one of my first cakes, about 30 years before I discovered stamping! What concentration, this is serious business! (I know I still probably furrow my brow the same way!) Lots of other memories in this 70's kitchen, I spy my Little Professor calculator on the table, an owl cookie jar that would now be considered "retro", and just the corner of my favorite red bell bottoms... :)
Well, I just can't bring myself to post anything else right now for two reasons: one, we have a design team hop tomorrow and I've made some things for it but can't decide which to use, and two, there is a pub call finishing up tomorrow which I am considering the same cards for (and tyring to get a couple other things made, none of which I can show)!* Not a huge dilemma but I just can't decide! So stick with me one more day, there WILL be a new card here tomorrow night!!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

*Actually there's third reason, I am also working on some new sets!

I LOVE Red Velvet Cake - it's my favorite. Your photo is adorable and speaks volumes of your desire to get it right. Too cute.

Can't wait to see what you'll be posting.

Have a fun day, Mel.

Darling picture. You probably had no idea what you looked like at the time since you seem oblivious to the camera. My daughter would have been mugging :)

I like decorating cakes too - though I'm certainly not a professional!

What a grat picture -- thanks for sharing! Red Velvet Cake was my Mom's speciality -- Her family always requested that she bring one when we got together for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.
