I managed to get quite a few cakes made for June. I was looking forward to the cakes that were ordered for July until disaster struck! I broke my left wrist! For most the left is not such a big deal, but, I am left handed!
This happened on June 28th and I had 2 orders for the weekend of July 2nd and 3rd and also my daughters 1st birthday cake to make. I thought I had to cancel both the orders. Thankfully while I was in the hospital waiting for surgery my husband managed to get a hold of a fellow decorator to do the orders last minute. I am so glad that I met her in my Wilton classes a few years ago! I would hate to disappoint my customers.
So I spent a night in the hospital, and had surgery on my left wrist. The doctor gave me a permanent plate held in with 6 screws and there is also a pin that will be removed at a later date. As of right now I have been healing for 4 weeks, and I am determined to get my dexterity back as fast as I can. Once the pin is removed I will be in physio. But for now I try to go about my daily duties wearing my splint as little as possible.
This week I started back making flowers and baking cake. I have a small cake that I did not cancel for this week and also a wedding cake for the 1st weekend of August which I want to have a head start on the flowers.
The other major disappointment for me because of my injury was that I had to cancel my plans to enter a triathlon for Aug 7th. I've spent the last 4 weeks taking it easy, and finally decided that was long enough and got back to running this week. Maybe I'll give swimming a try next week!

Just kidding, I will do any sports themed cake that you ask of me. I don't have any team preference when it come to cake.
Football field and the Canucks hockey rink. I think her oldest is the last one to have a birthday this year, so we will see what that cake turns out to be.

I have to admit that Pops are not what I am good at, but if a customer wants them then I will do my best.
The best thing about the 2ocake pops orders that I had in June was that I found a great place to buy the sprinkles in larger quantities. Bulk Barn has so many to choose from! It was hard to pick.
Spring Fling cake for my son's school I lucked out and the cake went home with a lady who has had my cake in the past and so she called me up to order this John Deer themed cake for her son's birthday. I am certain that they still had leftover cake from the Spring Fling one, but that was not the theme for a 9 year old boy!
