So one thing I have learned since being a SAHM for about 4 and half years is that you should do some kind of hobby or something you enjoy. We all have different talents or things that interest us and we should take time to do those things. We all should take some me time.
Something I enjoy is cake decorating. I am in no way talented, but I enjoy doing it and I think they look okay. I really want to take a class about using fondant, but so far I haven't been able too. I love to search on the Internet for ideas so I thought I would post some of my cakes just in case someone was interested.
Belle- (Second Princess Cake (the first one isn't as pretty as this one, but I used a whole doll the first time and the advantage to that is then she got to play with the doll, this one is just a cake peg and now is is up in my cupboard collecting dust.)Cinderella- (First Princess Cake...Almost a little embarrassed now.) So with both cakes you use Pampered Chef Batter Bowl as the dress part (basically a tempered glass large measuring cup).
Cake for my sister... the edge decoration is a duel color bag (not the special bag, but you just put one color on one side of the bag and another on the other side).
Cake for my decorating class.
Red Hat Cake for my MIL's B-day. Same batter bowl used for the top layer.
Transformers cake for my nephew. Wilton cake pan and instructions. Whew, that was a lot of stars, and come to find out, Wilton makes a triple star tip, to make jobs like this one easier.
Thomas the Train Cake for my DS. The Thomas is made from a Wilton train pan and I changed the colors to match Thomas. Got the idea for the cars on-line, the wheels are made from oreos and the track was made out of Kit Kats and crushed oreos and the grass is colored coconut.
Hannah Montana Guitar- My first cupcake shaped "cake". Again got the idea on-line searching for Hannah Montana ideas. I had to modify from the one I found on-line. Also, used cream cheese frosting for the first time, found it a little harder to work with since you can't get it (at least I couldn't) to a stiff consistency.
Find what you enjoy doing and take time out to cultivate your talent. Not only will you benefit from it, but so will your kids (no matter what it is, if they don't directly benefit, the will since you are taking some me time).
